TRICK R' TREAT (2007)
It's hard to believe in the cinematic-apocalyptic decade of the zeroes they produced a horror anthology film that wasn't a complete waste of time but somehow they did. It's also hard to believe that it took filmmakers this long to remake CREEPSHOW and do it halfway decently. It must have all been a big mistake.
You get four spooky stories that wrap around each other, ala Quentin Tarantino, which include some werewolf women(including that chick from those X-MEN movies), Halloween-masked retards getting their retarded bus driven off a cliff and then getting retarded revenge, a fat candy-obsessed kid(aren't they all?) who knocks on the wrong door and an old guy who hates Halloween and winds up getting abused by some living potato-sack boy with a sharp lollypop. While it's not the most intelligent thing you will ever see, and it will never top the original HALLOWEEN as the ultimate movie to watch on October 31st, it's still a fun holiday-themed flick and compared to just about everything else that came out in 2007 you could do a lot worse.
