On October 28, 2013 Beyond Fest’s held a screening of Michael Dougherty’s ‘Trick ‘r Treat’ at the Egyptian Theater. During the panel section of the event Sam delivered a note saying “Make a sequel.” to Michael Dougherty. Dickson stated “Dougherty says it’s not his call…it’s Thomas Tull from Legendary’s call.” Tull stood up in the audience and proclaimed “I can’t say no to Sam. Let’s make a sequel!“. At that moment a banner with “Trick ‘r Treat 2” appeared on the screen and the crowd went wild.

Dougherty later made a statement about the sequel, “I think we’ll shake it up a little bit,” Dougherty continues “There are different archetypes I’d like to explore, different types of monsters. We covered werewolves, vampires, and zombies, but there’s a whole slew of different creatures out there that we haven’t tackled, and I think Sam would probably be pretty good buddies with. So I think it’s time to let them have their time in the sun.”trick 6

‘Trick ‘r Treat’ is also getting it’s own graphic novel series, which will be released this October. The graphic novels will be written by Andreyko with art by Stuart Sayger and Stephen Byrne. Dougherty had this to say about the comic: “I’ve been having way too much fun working with Legendary and the rest of my team bringing the ancient legend of Krampus to the big screen, and I look forward to expanding the film’s dark Christmas mythology onto the comic page. And hopefully the fans who’ve been patiently waiting for Trick ‘r Treat 2 will enjoy this deeper peek into Sam’s world until he finally rises from the pumpkin patch once more.
