On October 6, Kevin live-tweeted the much-buzzed Halloween horror flick Trick ‘r Treat, recently released on DVD and Blu-ray. Here’s a log, complete with time-code for your home-viewing pleasure.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 00:30 – I remember these warning films about Halloween when I was a kid. Takes me back to the days of razor blades in apples.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 01:20 – Leslie Bibb as a robot. I’d be happy to turn her crankl.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 01:50 – Homage to Jon Carpenter’s (NOT Rob Zombie’s) Halloween – killer loookking thru mask.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 03:30 – Another JC’s Halloween homage… creepy guy across the street. And like an idiot, she’s going to investigate.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 04:50 – SLUG BUG!
TRICK ‘R TREAT 05:00 – If LBibb told Helo to “put on the tape,” does that mean they only have one porno… and on VHS no less. Ugrade!
TRICK ‘R TREAT 06:55 – And a credit sequence as an homage to CREEPSHOW (some might say THE HULK, but I say bite your tongue!)
TRICK ‘R TREAT 07:45 – Making me hungry for candy corn.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 08:50 – Warren Valley, Ohio is totally into Halloween. Nowhere in Ohio is this such a big deal.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 09:20 – “And my tits keep falling out.” I love those kind of Halloween costumes. Should visit OSU on Halloween night.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 10:30 – Anna Paquin is hot as Little Red Riding Hood, but her tits aren’t popping out anywhere. I’m disappointed.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 11:30 – Ahhhhh… the fat kid from BAD SANTA is all grown up, and still fat. (I can say that because I’m a fat guy)
TRICK ‘R TREAT 13:30 – There might be nothing creepier than Dylan Baker carving a jack-o-lantern.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 15:00 – Nothing says delicious like a chocolate barf-o-rama
TRICK ‘R TREAT 15:30 – If you’re going to poison a neighborhood kid, you probably shouldn’t do it to the fat one. Too hard to move the body.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 16:30 – “Great costume Mr. Wilkins!” Oh, you didn’t notice the three liters of chocolate vomit on my steps?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 18:15 – Hmmmm… a lawn gnome. Is that a reference to THE FRIGHTENERS?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 18:40 – “Billy! Please be quiet!” And don’t notice the rather neatly dug grave in our back yard.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 19:30 – A dog eating a finger. Tribute to BRAINSCAN? Or am I stretching too much here?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 20:35 – “It smells like a dead whore out here.” If you use that phrase, you’re possibly admitting to know what it smells like
TRICK ‘R TREAT 24:55 – Dylan Baker as the Principal is pretty creepy, but not nearly as creepy as his character in HAPPINESS.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 25:50 – 1st story was predictable but fun. Decent Halloween short story.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 26:00 – “Coach Taylor was in a hot dog costume butt-f*ing a pig.” Yeah, I had to rewind to watch that again.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 26:50 – “She’s not a retard. She’s an idiot savant.” Not politically correct at all. Where’s the outcry for language?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 27:50 – This movie reminds me… I need to get @carcarr819 to dress up sexy for Halloween.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 28:50 – A real vampire feeding on Halloween. Yeah, that’s been done before. Kinda lame.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 30:30 – Kudos for giving some history of the Samhain Feis.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 31:35 – “The Halloween School Bus Massacre.” So this is basically the town you never want to live in.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 34:05 – This whole school bus massacre is a bit cumbersome for a real plan to get kid of the special kids.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 35:30 – I don’t care about anything else, but driving an empty school bus off a cliff looks like crazy-awesome-fun.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 37:45 – If I’m not mistaken, that’s KYLE XY’s foster brother. Won’t mind watching him get attacked.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 39:30 – Seriously? A guy dressed as a baby in a diaper? Who plans a costume like that. (I know, secretly I do!)
TRICK ‘R TREAT 40:00 – Were wolves. There, wolves. There, castle.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 43:40 – So what are we saying? 20-year-old murdered special kids become cannibals? Isn’t there an elevator they could use?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 45:20 – “It was all just a trick. A bad joke.” Who does this kid think he is? David Letterman apologizing to Sarah Palin?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 47:40 – Yeah, that chain you’re dragging is going to be your downfall.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 49:00 – Moral to the story… never mess with an idiot savant, be-otches!
TRICK ‘R TREAT 49:45 – I know this is an homage to Little Red Riding Hood, but also an homage to A COMPANY OF WOLVES?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 50:15 – 2nd story was creepy and well shot, but a bit rote. Seen it before, but effectively done.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 50:45 – What is it about Anna Paquin and vampires??? Is she just that kinky or what?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 53:50 – There’s that hot dog again.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 54:30 – Well, if you’re gonna get violently killed, having Anna Paquin rip your clothes off first isn’t the worst way to got.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 55:00 – BOOBIES! Woot!
TRICK ‘R TREAT 56:15 – NIce twist on Little Red Riding hood, and nice VAN HELSING homage with the FX.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 58:10 – Would you trick or treat in this town? Not me.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:00:00 – Need to pause the movie for a radio call to WMT in Cedar Rapids, IA. Be back in about 15 minutes.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:01:00 – An aluminum baseball bat… ideal for home defense… unless someone has a gun.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:02:15 – There’s the “stinks like a dead whore” line again. Are we saying that dead whores are stinkier than say, dead nuns?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:05:25 – Isn’t it customary to actaully turn on the lights when you’re searching the house for strange noises?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:06:15 – Stabbing the legs from under the bed. Homage to PET SEMETARY.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:06:50 – That creepy killer kid in the costume reminds me of the creepy kid from The Orphanage.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:07:35 – When Skittles attack!
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:08:00 – Crawling on the ceiling. Homage to EXORCIST III.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:09:00 – That is one ugly kid…. and an homage to HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:10:00 – He follows the rules of #Zombieland, in particular the Double Tap.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:10:30 – That’s such soothing muzak on the 911 call. Calms down all the victims in town, apparently.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:11:15 – “You gotta be f-ing kidding me.” Dialogue homage to John Carpenter’s THE THING.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:22:45 – Stalking this old, wheezing dude is kinda lame when you can kill him by simply yelling, “Boo!”
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:13:30 – And candy saves another life. The moral of this movie.
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:16:00 – Since when do werewolves drive SUVs?
TRICK ‘R TREAT 1:17:45 – And ROLL CREDITS!
My final word on TRICK ‘R TREAT is that it’s predictable and not terribly original but lots of fun, like campfire ghost stories.
TRICK ‘R TREAT may not have been awesome, but it sure as heck got me into the holiday spirit. Going pumpkin hunting on Friday pending weathr
