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.........
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.
