Yes I know, it's blasphemy, because 1978's Halloween is the quintessential Halloween movie, and blah, blah, blah... Well it is too, but you know what? Trick 'r Treat deserves that title every bit as much as does the Carpenter Classic.
|We love Halloween, Sam... so please don't kill us.|
I know it sounds like were kissing ass here, but this movie really is magical. The main source of that magic is Sam; the creepy kid with the sack on his head, who just so happens to be the vengeful spirit of All Hallows' Eve... that's not necessarily a fact, but we're pretty sure that's the case. If he isn't the spirit of Halloween, then Halloween sent him here to kill. One or the other, feel free to take your pick.
|Maybe he's both.|
|He likes to watch.|
And really, Sam is an amazing character... who needs a sequel!
|If the new shorts on Fearnet are any indication, we will be seeing more of Sam.|
