Critics reviews

…Dougherty’s film often serves as a textbook lesson in contemporary horror’s shortcomings. A compilation movie in the Creepshow vein, Trick ’r Treat zigzags between gross-outs and slapsticky gallows humor among a handful of interconnected stories taking place in the same small town one Halloween night. But the film is most noteworthy for its largely sustained air of suburban nighttime menace, lushly and slickly evoking the likes of Carpenter and Vincente Minnelli (of Meet Me in St. Louis).
