We’ve all heard the story of the film that’s made and then it’s shelved indefinitely. Those who’ve seen it consider it genius, but for some reason the studio never puts it out. Nevermind that they have no problem dumping the same crap on us every weekend. Mike Dougherty’s (X-Men 2, Superman Returns) Halloween opus Trick ‘r Treat has suffered such a fate. Or maybe not! Dougherty and actor Dylan Baker were at Fangoria’s annual Weekend Of Horrors and let fly a few tidbits abut the film.
First off, the film will see release on DVD/Blu-Ray this October. The date is still being finalized, but the film will be in stores this Halloween. Second, the Trick ‘r Treat soundtrack will be released this September. Third, a previously announced four-issue comic from DC/Wildstorm will be released as a single graphic novel in October as well. And last but not least, Trick ‘r Treat will be coming to select theaters from July-October as part of a roadshow to promote the film. Cities are still be added for the tour so check back and I’ll try to keep this updated as they add them.
