Tales of Halloween – Review

By Lynn Sorel

Rating: 9 out of 10

Synopsis: Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and ax murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents.

Our Thoughts: Tales of Halloween offers a variety of gory, comedic stories in an inventive anthology collection that is sure to become a Halloween tradition for many.

Much like 2007’s Trick ‘r Treat, the stories are interlocking and center around one town on Halloween night. However, it doesn’t feel quite as solidly connected as Michael Dougherty’s film was.
