More and more Comic-Con schedule news keeps pouring in. The long delayed Halloween horror film Trick ‘r Treat will screen with the cast and crew in attendance on Thursday, July 23rd, in Ballroom 20.
The Michael Dougherty film stars Quinn Lord, Brian Cox, Tahmoh Penikett (Dollhouse), Anna Paquin (True Blood), Dylan Baker, Leslie Bibb, Rochelle Aytes, Moneca Delain, Lauren Lee Smith, Britt McKillip, Isabelle Deluce and Jean-Luc Bilodeau. Sounds pretty cool to me – watch a gritty horror film with stars Brian Cox, Tahmoh Penikett and Anna Paquin in attendance.
Here’s the official release from the Comic-Con website:
Thursday, July 23
9:30-12:00 Halloween Comes Early: Trick ‘r Treat Screening— Be among the first to see writer/director Michael Dougherty’s (Superman Returns, X2) creepy, darkly comic celebration of the scariest night of the year. Trick ‘r Treat takes the Creepshow/Tales from the Crypt approach to nefarious new depths with four interwoven tales set on Halloween night: a high school principal who moonlights as a vicious serial killer; a young virgin whose quest for that special someone takes a gruesome turn; a group of teens who carry out a cruel prank with disastrous consequences; and a cantankerous old man who battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon. Prior to the screening, Ain’t It Cool News mogul Harry Knowles will moderate a panel featuring Michael Dougherty and members of the cast, including Anna Paquin (True Blood, X-Men), Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse), and Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity, X2). A collection of creepy stories that mixes fun with fear, candy with poison, and laughter with screams, the critically acclaimed Trick ‘r Treat will be released on Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD and On Demand by Warner Home Video in October.
