it was announced quite some time ago that a remake to the classic ’86 metal-horror movie Trick or Treat was in the works. A reader over at Moviehole.net asked editor-in-chief Clint Morris to hit up Joel Soisson – the writer-producer of the original – to see what he knew about remake. You can see what he had to say by reading on. In the original, Sammi Curr was a famous, devil-worshiping rock star who died under mysterious circumstances. Now he wants to come back to life. Doing so requires possessing radio wave & automobiles and making a few human sacrifices. Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons cameo.
“I’m amazed how many contacts, emails and letters I get from that movie. More than all my other films combined,” Soisson tells the site “At the time we all wrote it off as a fun little confection that wouldn’t be remembered past its first Halloween weekend. Strange business we’re in. So yeah, I am actually kind of interested in a remake. Problem is, like Bill and Ted which we made around the same time for DeLaurentiis Entertainment group, the rights have been sold and resold from that now defunct company to the point it would take the FBI to puzzle it out. But your reader has inspired me to try. Something in the headbanger’s eternal struggle still resonates.”
So there you have it, Soisson’s looking into a remake! Now go pick this up on DVD now, it’s a friggin’ classic!
