1982’s Trick or Treats had its first Blu-ray release back in 2015. Now, it’s getting a new re-release just in time for Halloween.
In the film, “Five years after his wife, Joan (Carrie Snodgress), had him wrongfully and deliberately committed to a mental institution so she could live with her boyfriend (David Carradine), Malcolm (Peter Jason) escapes on Halloween night and arrives back at his old house to murder her. Except Joan is not home – she’s out with her boyfriend while babysitter Linda (Jacqueline Giroux) is looking after Malcolm’s 10-year-old son Christopher (Chris Graver), an equally psychotic and demented practical joker until, under cover of darkness, Malcolm shows up and begins a real terror game of attrition with Linda.”
Steve Railsback, Paul Bartel, Jillian Kesner, John Blyth Barrymore, Dan Pastorini, and Tim Rossovich co-star in the film written, produced and directed by Gary Graver.
Trick or Treats will be re-released on October 5, 2021, from Kino and Code Red. Here’s a look back at the original trailer.
