Shout Factory is releasing a special collector’s edition or Trick r’ Treat on Blu Ray this fall (or spring if you live in the southern hemisphere like I do) in time for my favorite holiday; Halloween.
Written, directed, and executive produced by Mike Dougherty (Krampus), Trick r’ Treat (2007) is a horror anthology film that follows several seemingly unconnected stories taking place on Halloween night in a small town. Dylan Baker (Along Came a Spider), Anna Paquin (True Blood), and Brian Cox (Adaptation) star.
Interwoven stories demonstrate that some traditions are best not forgotten as the residents (Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Dylan Baker) of a small town face real ghosts and goblins on Halloween. Tales of terror reveal the consequences of extinguishing a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight and a grumpy hermit’s encounter with a sinister trick-or-treater.
Extras from the initial DVD release will be included and there will also be an entire line-up of new content currently being developed. However, we do know that director Michael Dougherty is involved and we also know that interviews with the cast are currently taking place.
Also, if you’re among the first 1000 Trick or Treaters who pre-order the Collector’s edition from Scream Factory website, you’ll received FREE 18″ X 24″ ROLLED POSTER featuring the brand new artwork! You’ll also get it shipped two week’s early.
Looks like this will be a great distraction while we wait for Trick r’ Treat 2 to hit the screens. The official release of the Trick r’ Treat Collectors Edition is October 9th, 2018.
• This will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date). U.S. and Canada territories (Region A).
• New extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced later in September. Extras from the previous DVD and Blu-ray release will be ported over and more new interviews are underway. We’re happy to report that Director Michael Dougherty is very-much involved!
• The newly-commissioned artwork pictured is Director approved and comes to us from Devon Whitehead. This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will be a theatrical art alternative that Mr. Dougherty asked if we could include.
• National street date is planned for Oct 9th. However, if you pre-order now for early shipping directly from us you will also receive an 18′ x 24″ rolled poster of the limited-edition newly-commissioned art. (NOTE: Only 1,000 of the posters will be made so secure one soon! )
