The Ultimate Movie to Celebrate Halloween
Trick ‘r Treat is a collection of interwoven short stories that each feature elements of Halloween horror classics; from zombies, curses, homicidal maniacs, supernatural spooks, and werewolves (with the BEST werewolf transformation currently in cinema—a close second would be the one featured in An American Werewolf in London). This gem was cheated out of its theatrical release–but fully deserves its cult favorite status, and there’s a reason it’s beloved by fans and critics alike. It is a smartly crafted, entertaining, and darkly comedic ode to the thrills, chills, and fun of Halloween. If you’re a fan of horror and don’t mind some gore, there’s no better film to celebrate the season than this tongue-in-cheek tribute.
Ever since it’s release, watching Trick ‘r Treat has been a Halloween tradition for me
—And I usually watch it while celebrating the holiday with friends over caramel apples, kettle corn, hard cider, and other goodies. This year, there was a change in plans. James and I will be staying in snuggling, and watching some of our favorite horror movies in between passing out candy to trick-or-treaters, and packing for a mini trip. We happened to see a commercial for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios a few days ago; and I mentioned that I’d never been–not to the Halloween-themed bash, or the to park itself. My fabulous fiancee decided that was a tragedy that could not be allowed to stand; and is giving me an amazing treat: We’re heading to Florida for a few days to explore the Universal Studios, and Universal Studios: Islands of Adventure!
What more fitting place for your Mistress at the Movies than a whole theme park inspired by them?
I wasn’t able to rearrange my real-time appointments on such short notice for us to go in time for Halloween Horror Nights this year; but James and I will be touring Universal studios November 3-9th. I’ll be available for calls on a limited basis during my evening hours, but probably won’t be on in the mornings after 8am (James & I both like getting to theme parks right when they open to avoid some of the lines). So, if you’d like to hear how the trip’s going, or want to work out those kinks, reach me early in the morning, or later at night 🙂
Stay safe, have fun, and Happy Halloween!
