Traumafessions :: Reader Brayden on Trick or Treats

November 17th, 2008 by aunt john · 2 Comments

The one film that scared me was a film by GARY GRAVER(1982’s TRICK OR TREATS). I saw my dad watching it in the family room and I wanted to watch it. He told me okay. And it was all fine until the crazy man started chasing after the babysitter. That seriously traumatized me and I had always pictured the murderer outside my window. And that is why I avoided slashers for a bit of time.

That part where the guys in white come for the husband at the beginning is kind of brutal. I mean, it’s all done in real time and feels kind of like that’s how it would exactly happen. I don’t think this is a great film, but it certainly has it’s moments.

For the record, I saw this on Commander USA’s Groovy Movies! What a great show that was!

I found this movie for a buck at a thrift store. It didn’t really do it for me, but it was nice to see Steve Railsback, an actor who deserves a better career than he’s gotten.
I never understood why “trick” was singular and “treats” was plural in the title, but that’s just the grammar geek in me.
