‘Trick ‘r Treat’ Sequel is “Gonna Happen,” Says Michael Dougherty


It’s been nearly two years since Legendary Pictures announced a sequel to Michael Dougherty’s cult classic anthology Trick ‘r Treat.

Since then, everything’s gone silent…silent night that is.

Dougherty’s Krampus (watch the trailer) is a new holiday present fans can open in theaters on December 4th.

With Krampus on the horizon, Trick ‘r Treat fans wanna know what gives.

“It’s gonna happen,” Dougherty told IGN when asked about Trick ‘r Treat 2.

He explained that they had to move on the concept of Krampus before someone else did it, and “momentum picked us up and carried us off.

“Thats not to say that Trick ‘r Treat has not been simmering in the background,” he added. “I wanna get it right, I don’t wanna rush it.”

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.

I was thinking about the delay this morning and, honestly, I think it’s a good thing. Trick ‘r Treat is easily one of the best Halloween films ever, not to mention one of the greatest anthologies. How do you top it? Take your time Mr. Dougherty, we’re excited whenever you get it as perfect as a candy apple.

    As much as I hate to admit it, sometimes it’s best for a franchise to take things slow and get it right, especially after a superb previous installment – Final Destination 6, what’s good? *Nicki Minaj voice*

      Irving even though i found the SCREAM tv show to average i ended up liking Brooke/Carlson Young a lot. i’d be up for her being the lead in a FD6 movie! 🙂

        She grew on me too. As the series went on, she seemed to be the only I liked and her character got better. Where the Noah dude and the bi chick with the short hair started off strong and got worse towards the end.

    Good, LOVED the first one

    “Bloody Disgusting wrote the first review ever for the film.” Stayed away from this site for years because of the elitist attitude. Came back for the TrT2 news via another website. Amused to see nothing has changed.

    • smash-adams

      I feel exactly the same way! The other reason I left is because the website became dominated by ads and slow load times.

    Honestly the first one is pretty bad ass and a great Halloween film in general. I’m up for a sequel and if he’s taking his time with it thats because he’s gonna deliver a pretty epic follow up and more of SAM!!!! Take your time and give us a amazing film!!!!

  • Dirty Frank

    Definitely the best Halloween movie since, well, Halloween itself. Looking forward to both Krampus and a sequel for TrT, really hope he can keep up the quality of the first. Also really hope someone gives him the Gremlins reboot.

  • Roberto Ciamora

    It’s a shame this guy hasn’t been given more chances to make movies. TRT is one of my favorite Horror flicks of the last 10 years and he wrote the only X Men movie I liked X2. Krampus looks awesome as expected.

    • J Jett

      Roberto, i agree that X2 is the best XMEN movie yet. 🙂

  • J Jett

    i’m excited for KRAMPUS and am definitely looking forward to TRT 2!
