Earlier this year, Blu-ray distributors Scream Factory announced that it would be delivering audiences an all-new Collector's Edition release of Trick 'r Treat, which would mark the debut of a number of special features. With the full details of the release now unveiled, we have learned the disc will come with multiple new interviews and featurettes that were created specifically for the release. Learn more below before the disc hits shelves on October 9th.
A creepy, darkly comic celebration of the scariest night of the year from writer-director Michael Dougherty (Krampus, Godzilla: King Of The Monsters), Trick 'r Treat takes the Creepshow/Tales From The Crypt approach to nefarious new depths with four interwoven tales set on Halloween night. A high school principal (Dylan Baker) moonlights as a vicious serial killer; the quest of a young virgin (Anna Paquin) for that special someone takes a gruesome turn; a group of teens carries out a cruel prank with disastrous consequences; and a cantankerous old man (Brian Cox) battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon.
