Trick ‘r Treat Will Be Playing in Theaters This October!

In the annals of horror history, few movie releases have been as badly botched as the release of Trick ‘r Treat back in the late 2000s. While it played at some film festivals in 2007 and 2008, Warner Bros. didn’t release the film to the general public until 2009, and even then, they didn’t put it in theaters. They just released it directly onto home video, and back then, that was the equivalent of dumping a movie onto Netflix. It was a sign that the studio didn’t have faith in it, but time has proven Warner Bros was very, very wrong about that.

Today, Trick ‘r Treat is one of the most beloved Halloween films of all time, and many fans include it in their annual October viewing rotations. So it’s a real shame that the vast majority of us have never gotten the chance to see it on the big screen, but thankfully, that’s going to change next month. The movie’s official Twitter account tweeted today that it’s going to be released in theaters this October, and according to Fandango, it’ll be playing on October 6, 8, 11, and 13-15 exclusively in Regal theaters.

I have to be honest, the fact that it’s only playing at Regal cinemas is a bit of a bummer for me, as I have AMC A-List, but you know what? I love this movie so much that I wouldn’t mind paying a bit of extra money to see it on the big screen. In fact, this might be the only time Trick ‘r Treat ever plays in theaters, so if you’re a fan of the movie theater experience, you’re probably going to want to jump on this opportunity and make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible. We might never get this chance again, so it would be a shame if any of us missed it.
