2007’s horror film ‘Trick ‘r Treat’ became an instant Halloween classic, recently spawning a graphic novel and soon, a sequel. Now that writer/director Michael Dougherty’s Christmas film, ‘Krampus’ , is done he can turn his attention back to the ‘Trick ‘r Treat’ sequel.
Dougherty spoke with Cinema Blend earlier this week about what we can expect from the sequel to the anthology filmy and what we will not see.
“I’m just really against filling in too much information about your horror icons. I always find that they get less scary the more you know about them. [We won’t be] diving too deep into Sam’s origins. They will always remain shrouded in mystery.” Dougherty continued “I feel like the first film really just scratched the surface in terms of exploring what really goes on in the shadows of Halloween. For me the first film is really just introducing audiences to the notion that, yes strange creepy magical things do happen on Halloween and here’s a peek behind the curtain, and so, with the next film, we want to peek behind the curtain more into asking why.”
Now we wait. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that ‘Trick ‘r Treat 2’ will be released in time for next Halloween.
