Michael Dougherty Updates Horror Fans On Trick 'r Treat 2

Slash Film caught up with Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty and talked about his new digital decoration idea, which will be released by AtmosFX this comingHalloween season and features the return of Sam. While speaking about his plans to the website, Dougherty also provided an update on the status of Trick ‘r Treat 2.

“I’m going to speak carefully about that [Laughs], because the moment I utter a word about the sequel, everybody starts salivating,” said the writer/director. “It is very much my intention to make the sequel. Legendary is very committed to making the movie. Creatively, it’s in process. When it actually happens, I don’t know. But, hopefully, stuff like this — the digital decorations, the comic books, the merchandise, and what have you — will tide people over and I can finally get around to making it. Nothing would make me happier than returning to that universe. Like, I miss Sam. When we were shooting these vignettes, I was getting a little bit emotional because I would love nothing more than to hang out with Sam again for a year or two, bringing him back to the big screen.”

Dougherty also said he’d like to make Trick ‘r Treat into a trilogy.

“I think it’d be great to make it a trilogy, at least. So fingers crossed,” he revealed to Slash Film. “For me, I think every film should explore a different aspect of Halloween. I felt like the first film was the very traditional, suburban Halloween that we all have some memory of. But as I’ve grown up over the years, I’ve lived everywhere from Columbus, Ohio to New York to L.A., and I find that the holiday is very different depending on where you live. Or even time periods. I don’t see why we should be limited to just present day stories. Halloween is an amazing holiday because it evolves depending on where you live and the time period.”
