BREAKING: ‘Trick ‘r Treat 2′ Is Happening!!!

trick-r-treat-2

Bloody Disgusting’s Evan Dickson is at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood for Beyond Fest’s screening of Michael Dougherty’s cult classic anthology Trick ‘r Treat where some major news was just announced. As you can tell by the title of this story, Sam is back!

Here at the screening and during the Q+A Sam came out with a note asking Michael Dougherty to make a sequel,” Dickson explains. “Dougherty says it’s not his call…it’s Thomas Tull from Legendary’s call.

This is when the Thomas Tull stands up in the audience and exclaims, ‘I can’t say no to Sam. Let’s make a sequel!’

This is when the title card for Trick ‘r Treat 2 blasted on the screen to roaring exclamation from the audience!

The 2009 anthology features four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; and a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.

Bloody Disgusting wrote the first review ever for the film.

    Although im extremely excited about this, im a bit nervous about the status of this movie since the first one was canned for so many years and it didnt even got a proper release. :C

    • Lonmonster

      I think this is Legendary trying right that wrong.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    This is AMAZING news! :-)

  • DarrelDreadful

    This is something I didn’t even know I wanted until it was announced lol awesome early Halloween treat thats for sure. The first one was an instant classic in my heart, I hope this sequel will follow along nicely.

  • HorrorFancy

    Giddy over the news. XD

  • DreamWave

    I absolutely love Horror Anthologies! Even though the first trick ‘r treat didn’t leave a great impression(A little overrated me thinks’), it was still pretty entertaining. For me It’s become a tradition to throw it on every Halloween october now. :P Anyways, looking forward to this! And whenever the hell LIVID(Livide, from the creators of ‘Inside’) gets a god damn US release date.lol

    • ThunderDragoon

      I feel the same way.

    • GothicGuido

      I know it’s an anthology but I always felt like Trick R Treat is more like the horror Pulp Fiction (a reason I love it). The stories are interwoven, some characters are in more than one story and one character is seamlessly killed off in a Chapter that isn’t their own.

    AWESOME!! great news! all i ask is for them to keep the same quality, atmosphere and excellent storytelling (the way the stories were interwoven was brilliant) that the first one had.

      Couldn’t say it better myself!

    Don’t know if theres ever been a case where a dvd film (even though I know it was first intended to be theatrical) spawned a theatrical released sequel but wouldn’t it be cool if this was the first. But alas, I fear this will be direct to disc as well. Oh well, Ill still watch it. Really liked the first one.

    • WalkWithMeInDarkness

      Maybe if they don’t call it Trick r Treat 2 and make it so that you don’t have to have seen the first one to understand it.

    • matt.kimmel.9

      Didn’t The Collector get released on DVD and The Collection get a theatrical release?

      • djblack1313

        matt, THE COLLECTOR was released theatrically. :)

  • Keegsta

    Yes! Incredible news! I cannot wait for this. They created the perfect way to do these for quite a few Halloweens. Very excited.

  • WalkWithMeInDarkness

    I’m game. I don’t love the first one, it’s a good movie, but it’s kind of overrated, in my opinion. But I thought Sam was cool and I loved the look of the film. It was well shot and it truly looked like Halloween.

  • doomas10

    Couldn’t be happier! The first film was incredible in the way the stories interacted with each other. The atmosphere was ace and that transformation scene awesome!

  • joeshmo447

    You don’t even know how pumped I am for this!!!!

  • markajacoby

    Never understood the hype behind Trick R Treat. Thought the stories were adequate at best. Thanks, but I’ll pass

    • MachetAY

      fully agree… I don’t get the hype but to each his own

  • Rick-Taylor

    Very excited for this. I think Sam is an icon of Halloween. I need to catch up on all the extra videos over the years that have come out.

    Also, the fourth story is about the old man who is attacked by Sam in his own house, not the wife who hates Halloween.

  • Lion7718

    Coll, hopefully it won’t take 4 years for it to be released.

  • hatchetian

    Hell Yea about time

  • Blood-Sicles

    THANK GOD! If Legendary is still behind it, it’s gonna be awesome. Really hope they won’t call it Trick ‘r Treat “2″, and throw this bad boy in theaters when it’s done. Seeing the Trick ‘r Treat back in 2009 on the big screen was amazing.

  • Adam Dodd

    SPLOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH.

  • Mr.Mirage

    Dare I say it: This could be a series, a big screen Tales From The Crypt that I would … die for. Ahem. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  • Tomaway

    First army of Darkness 2 and now this! Awesome.

  • Sami Smith

    I love the first one so much! this is very exciting news! Sam is the best! =)

  • 13wormwood13

    I can’t wait for this.

  • Milk

    Neat. I loved the first one. We watched it a few Halloweens ago and were super surprised how good it was. Now we watch it every Halloween during our 31 days of terror countdown horror movie cramfest.
