Trick r Treat

So if you caught a preview for this and are curious, it's basically Creepshow: 2009 -- five loosely interwoven horror tales that I would call "She Should Have Listened to Tahmoh Penikett," "The Principal is Insane," "Revenge of the Short-Bus Kids," "Anna Paquin's Red Riding Hood," and "Brian Cox vs. the Halloween Midget."

"Short-Bus Kids," a morality play about the perils of mistreating special-needs children, is the best (and most tasteless) of the bunch, though that's not really saying much; overall the film is a lot less fun than the trailer suggests. "Cox v. Midget" is the biggest disappointment -- it ought to be scary, but it's not, and it goes on way too long (although the "Grinch Who Stole Halloween" denouement almost redeemed it for me).

I agree with you. I didn't hate it, and it certainly looked very pretty, but it really seemed lost as a horror-comedy. It was rarely particularly funny, but it was never really scary, either. It was amusing and entertaining, sure, but it lacked bite. It was a holiday trifle, but all those people out there clamoring that it's the second coming of horror . . . well, I don't know what movie they were watching.
