Trick 'r Treat 2 not coming soon

That's a bit of sad news for us fans of the absolutely brilliant horror anthology Trick 'r Treat, but it's from the mouth of Legendary Pictures president Thomas Tull himself, so there you go.

Tull invited selected members of the media to a Hollywood press conference today (thanks for not inviting us, asshole) where a number of big projects were discussed, including a Warcraft movie, the latest from Michael Mann and something interesting about special ops guys fighting ghosts. You can read all about 'em here.

But what really caught our interest was mention of Trick 'r Treat 2, which horror fans have been demanding since the original masterpiece was poorly mishandled by Warner Bros. and dumped on DVD.

Tull acknowledged "People love it, it's something we talked about internally," he said. However, he mentioned the whole needing-a-really-good-story/stories thing and that, apparently, isn't happening anytime soon.

I wonder if the decision not to proceed with a sequel has anything to do with Warner Bros.'s lack of love for the first movie. Everyone I know who's seen Trick 'r Treat loves it, and it's cleaned up at festival screenings, but there's a lot of violence toward children in the movie. That makes studios nervous.

Hopefully writer/director Michael Dougherty gets the chance to bring Sam and the gang back one day.

  1. Some movies are not made for children and this is one of it. I think there are a big adult group out there that are sadden by this who love a good scary movie.
