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.
