trick 'r treat poster by strongstuff trick 'r treat poster by strongstuff
up next in my first friday fright night series for the colonial theatre: the amazing "trick 'r treat"!

this has quickly become one of my must-see-yearly halloween flicks. often described as the "pulp fiction of horror", the movie consists of four small vignettes that are elegantly intertwined, highly stylized and imminently satisfying. while i don't think the film ever specifically states when it takes place, it has a definite 1980's vibe...which i love. and that's where i drew the inspiration for this poster. i had to have one of those cheapo halloween costumes in-a-box every year. i'll always remember the garish colors of the godzilla one.

at any rate, it still blows my mind that this awesome little flick never found a proper theatrical release. relegated to DVD, it has nonetheless found a cult following and i couldn't have been more excited when i heard the colonial would be screening this...i'll finally get to see it on the big screen where it belongs!

Supposedly The Phone Will Ring
Right After You Do This.

















Just read the little stories and
Think of a wish as you scroll all
The way to the bottom. There is
A message there - then make your
Wish.















No attachment on this one.

Stories

















I'm 13 years old, and I wished
That my dad would come home from
The army, because he'd been having
Problems with his heart and right
Leg It was 2:53 p .m.. When I made
My wish. At 3: 07 PM . (14 minutes
Later), the doorbell rang, and
There my Dad was, luggage and all!!





I'm Katie and I'm 20 and I've been
Having trouble in my job and on the
Verge of quitting. I made a simple
Wish that my boss would get a new
Job. That was at 1:35 and at 2:55
There was an announcement that he
Was promoted and was leaving for
Another city. Believe me...this
Really works!!!









My name is Ann and I am 45 years
Of age. I had always been single
And had been hoping to get into a
Nice, loving relationship for many
Years. While kind of daydreaming(and right after receiving this email)
I wished that a quality person would
Finally come into my life. That was at
9:10 AM on a Tuesday. At 9:55 AM
A FedEx delivery man came into my
Office.He was cute, polite and
Could not stop smiling at me. He
Started coming back almost everyday(even without packages) and asked me
Out a week later . We married 6
Months later and now have been
Happily married for 2 years.

What a great email it was!!

















Just scroll down to the end, but
While you do, think of a wish.
Make your wish when you have completed
Scrolling. Whatever age you are, is the
Number of minutes it will take for your
Wish to come true. Ex.you are 25 years
Old, it will take 25 minutes for your wish
To come true).
















However, if you don't send this to
People in 5 minutes, you will have bad
Luck for years!!

Go for it!!!
!









SCROLL DOWN!!!!

this is AWESOME!!!

yeah Trick R Treat is a very.... DARK halloween movie.... possibly a little TOO dark for some horror movie loving audiences. It was a little too dark for me, but I will say that it has an AWESOME halloween vibe and is GREAT for gettin into that halloweeny mood!

(plus I never thought of Sam as the spirit of Halloween, but I think I like that XD)

From your description,it's obviously not the "Trick Or Treat" I'm thinking of---I'm not even certain I got the name right---the horror movie where the high schooler brings a recently deceased,highly controversial heavy metal rocker back from the dead by playing the backwards messages on his last album.It features Gene Simmons as a hard-rock DJ and Ozzy Osbourne as a rock-hating preacher. :pumpkin:

I absolutely loved this film. I don't generally like horror, but there's a real sense of fun about this movie that caught me and held me in my seat the entire duration of the film. It was like a long episode of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" but for adults.

Anyway, nice image! Very representative of the vibe of the movie.

Fantastic design! I don't know how exactly you did it, but I think you managed very well to put the 'What? When? Where?' facts into the focus, without keeping the viewers eye from inspecting the whole image. Excellent work!

I liked that movie, at first I thought it was going to be just another stupid teen slasher film, but I was suprised and I enjoyed it.

I just made a Sam doll yesterday to display out the window on Halloween night.
...It's starting to creep me out a bit, think I'll hide it in a box somewhere.
