On this Call Your Ghoulfriend edition of Slashers, Micah exposes himself within mere moments and we are not talking about his tender love organ…

The film this week? The 2007 cult classic, Trick 'r Treat, by writer/ director, Michael Dougherty. We could mention that the film was also produced by Bryan Singer, but we don’t want to draw the wrong audience to this lovely little episode…

But on the topic of the much-maligned X-Men director, this film features Anna Paquin, who played Rogue in like 20 things, Brian Cox from X2, and Dylan Baker from Spider-Man. You might remember the latter played Curt Connors (aka “The Lizard”) before Rhys Ifans. If you want a good horror comic, that MF murders his own son– it was gnarly.

Back to Trick 'r Treat, some call it an anthology, while others a nonlinear narrative.

I wonder if these turds mention Season’s Greetings on this episode. Y’know, the animated short that gave birth to Sam and a bunch of candy-corn-flavored placenta? Also, did you know that Sam is short for Samhain? Must be a big Davey Havok fan… *badumtiss*

The film is a clear love letter to horror creators like John Carpenter, Mary Lambert, Brian De Palma, and tons of other who are not worth the metadata to type, but trust us, they are legit AF.

Since Jake is writing this description from the shadows, he will mention that there is a comic adaptation as well, written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by Mike Huddleston Grant Bond, Christopher Gugliotti (who also did The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and Fiona Staples.
