1982 Trick or Treats

Trick or Treats is 1982 horror/comedy 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.

A much better looking version of the film was finally released on Blu-ray by Code Red on October 5, 2021. The YouTube video below is gone but you can watch the full movie on TubiTV.com.
