Legendary’s ‘Trick ‘r Treat’ Facebook Stream a Sweet Treat for Fans


Fans of under-the-radar horror film “Trick ‘r Treat” will get a spooky, sweet reward. Tonight, Legendary Pictures will share a screening of the pic and a Q&A with writer-director Michael Dougherty on Facebook and, for some lucky few in Los Angeles, live at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theatre.

Dougherty made the 2007 horror/comedy anthology, which became one of horror’s biggest underdog success stories. Legendary Pictures sent the film — which interweaves four Halloween stories while playing on classic Halloween tropes, including the importance of checking your Halloween candy before consumption — straight to DVD, where it would go on to sell 550,000 copies and stream on iTunes and Amazon (it also had a limited run on Netflix).

Tonight’s theatrical release is part of Beyond Fest. Seth Green is hosting the Q&A, which will also feature stars Brian Cox and Dylan Baker.

Director Bryan Singer, who worked with Dougherty on “Superman Returns” and “X2,”  also tweeted that he’ll be there.

The event start at 7:30 p.m. PST.
