What are people saying?

  • João R.'s rating of the film Trick or Treats

    It's easy to detect its main inspiration, "Halloween". The first half was completely ridiculous and irritating (forced institutionalization without context, pranks as bad as the babysitter's reactions, the babysitter allowing her employer to touch her inappropriately, the babysitter telling the children's mother how she should've raised him, etc.). The second half robbed the already lacking logic out of it all.
