Times are tough right now. We welcome distractions. We welcome gathering virtually in lieu of in person. And those online meet-ups can lead to cool opportunities—like earlier this year, with the Monsterverse Watchalong! We watched Godzilla with director Gareth Edwards; Kong: Skull Island, where director Jordan Vogt-Roberts shared behind-the-scenes moments; and Godzilla: King of the Monsters with director Mike Dougherty. Now, just in time for Halloween, Mr. Dougherty is back to help us get our candy on during our watchalong of anthology favorite Trick ‘r Treat. It’s Friday October 30 at 7:00 PM Pacific.
In Trick ‘r Treat, we see five interlocking tales of terror with a devilish sense of humor. These include: a high school principal’s secret life as a serial killer; a group of kids play a prank on a Halloween-loving outsider with ghostly results; a woman who hates Halloween gets more than she bargained for; a timid young woman and her adventurous friends meet some sketchy guys at a party; and a curmudgeon must face the very real spirit of Halloween itself. The cast includes the likes of Brian Cox, Anna Paquin, Dylan Baker, Leslie Bibb and more!
Join the Legendary Watchalong for Trick ‘r Treat trivia, behind-the-scenes information, concept art, and polls. Director Mike Dougherty will be tweeting along with us from the Legendary Twitter account, and be sure to join Mike and Dan Casey after the film for a Q&A on Instagram Live (on Nerdist and Legendary’s account):
As far as where to watch the movie, you have plenty of options. Pop in your version of the film; stream on DirecTV or AMC+; rent or buy on Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Google Play, YouTube, or Vudu.
So come with us tomorrow, Friday, 10/30 at 7:00pm PT for one of the best Halloween movies of all time, Trick ‘r Treat!
