Critic Reviews for Trick
leave[s] us, much like the characters in the film who attend the all-night horror-thon, worrying about just who might be sitting around us in the theatre - because, as Jayne puts it, "any one of your costumed moviegoers could be your killer".
A it's a cheesy, actionable rip-off of the John Carpenter Halloween franchise with plenty of blood and jack o'lanterns, but without a shred of originality.
One whopper of a plot-twist briefly gives "Trick" an original hook. But by the end of the picture it's clear the filmmakers aren't really interested in exploring any of the potentially interesting sociopolitical implications of their big surprise.
Sure, I was never bored, but this movie makes zero sense.
The pic might have proved mindless fun if it had least displayed a sense of humor, but everything is played with deadly seriousness.
