Halloween is still a few days away, but Sitges got a jump on the celebration. The Festival screened the fist work from the screenwriter for Superman Returns and X-Men 2, Michael Dougherty. The movie, entitled Trick'r Treat, was one of the big surprises at the 41st edition of the Sitges International Film Festival of Catalonia. Bryan Singer produces the film.
Trick'r Treat treats one of the subjects par excellence in North American horror: Halloween night, and it does it from a classic point of view, with pumpkins and costumes. The film is a mixture of horror and comedy.
Dougherty proposes interweaving stories that overlap: a high school principal who decides to take revenge on a student, a good girl who goes astray at a party, some kids who decide to play a joke on a friend and a hermit who is pursued by a monster.
