1982 Trick or Treats

This is a rare 1982 Halloween slasher movie titled Trick or Treats, directed by Gary Graver and starring Jacklyn Giroux, Peter Jason, Carrie Snodgress, David Carradine and Steve Railsback. A young woman babysits a young brat on Halloween night who keeps playing vicious pranks on her. Meanwhile, the boy's father has escaped from a mental institution and returns home to terrorize his ex-wife, who committed him. But, the wife's away at a party in Las Vegas with her new husband and they have left their son and the babysitter alone in the house.

This is a really low budget production, the whole film is badly-lit, the plot makes little sense, it's filled with scenes that just drag on, and for being a slasher/horror film it has a low body count and really lacks any suspense and scares. But it does have a spooky Halloween atmosphere, seeing all the colorful Halloween decorations and the trick or treaters costumes kept me entertained and that's what I liked about this film. This was released on VHS but is currently out of print and has never been released on DVD. You can find bootleg DVDs for sale online or you can watch the full movie on Youtube below:
