What the heck is the holdup, anyways? I first heard about this movie like 3 years ago! At least release it on DVD or something (so I don't have to wait till another October for a theatre release)!

Don't get too excited, people. When a studio keeps postponing a films release date, it's almost always a stinker. Look At Tom Cruise's last film. "Valkyrie".

Sigh!!!

What up gang!

Johnny Thunder here with the latest sort of news regarding the flick that all Halloween and haunters want to see - The current word seems to be that Trick R Treat is going direct to DVD (why oh why, horror gods???) - and should be released by the end of 2009.

According to this promotion in the second link, it sadly looks like it is going the DVD/Blu-Ray route.........

I am still holding out for a theatrical release.

I cannot believe that they are releasing this straight to DVD. How ridiculous.

I mean, they can't even put it out at some theaters around Halloween or one one of the past Friday the 13ths?

From the trailer it looks o.k...quite atmospheric in places.
They also have it billed as "The best Halloween Movie for 30 years"! So releasing it straight to DVD does seem to be a bit of a wasted opportunity. I would expect it to do at least moderately well in cinemas if released around October time.

Hey everyone - Johnny Thunder here with some Trick R Treat news!

Well, unfortunately, as we have discussed, it looks like the flick will indeed go direct to DVD and Blu-Ray this October -

However, the good news is that there will be a limited theatrical public starting next month at various festivals:

Check out the info here:

BD Horror News - 'Trick 'r Treat' Hits the Road in July, DVD/Blu-ray in October!

I still contend this decision to not release the flick in a wide release is just puzzling and frankly stupid.

Ditto. I just can't understand the reasoning behind this decision at all.

I think you may have a point, Mr Frost.
When garbage like "My Bloody Valentine 3D" gets a cinema release and half the cinemas weren't even showing it in 3D..
Well, it makes you wonder.:confused::(
