So with no release date in sight, now seems the perfect time to release a trailer. And here it is. And while you all know I'm a little biased where the fright flicks are concerned, I'll just go ahead and toss out an opinion anyway: The trailer looks pretty slick. The WB release boasts a pretty solid cast for a basic horror flick: On board are no less than Anna Paquin, Dylan Baker, Leslie Bibb and Brian Cox ... in addition to a bunch of photogenic newcomers I know nothing about. The promo clip is kind of all over the place, but the IMDb indicates that we're looking at sort of an anthology piece in which four separate stories interweave during one hellacious Halloween eve. Sounds like fun to me. Too bad Warner took away its release date.
UPDATE: The new-yet-reliable horror site known as ShockTillYouDrop.com informs us that the release date change was nothing more than a rumor. Word is that Trick 'r Treat will still open on October 5. (Check out our previous reports on this flick here and here.)
