Fun Fact: Trick Or Treat (Not Trick ‘R Treat) Has A Surprising Tomatometer On Rotten Tomatoes!

Sometimes when I get bored, I type older horror movies into the Rotten Tomatoes ‘search box’ and see what the Tomatometer is.  And since it’s that time of the year for Halloween-themed horror movies, I figured I would type in a movie that is synonymous with Halloween:  Trick Or Treat.  Now I know that some of you newbies to the horror world might think I meant the fantastic anthology horror movie that came out in 2007 (with a slightly different name), but I am talking about the heavy metal horror awesomeness that came out in 1986!


So what would you guess that the Tomatometer is for Trick Or Treat?  10%?  40%?  Hmmmmmm……try 71%!  Granted that’s only out of 7 reviews (5 fresh and 2 rotten), but impressive nonetheless considering the type of horror movie that Trick Or Treat is.  The storyline:  Ridiculous.  The soundtrack:  Straight 80’s metal goodness.  But in a time when the 80’s were churning out a lot of cheesy horror movies, it’s nice to see this one get some love on Rotten Tomatoes.  As one reviewer put it – “Yes, it’s trash, but it’s special trash to me.”  Couldn’t have said better myself random reviewer!

So the next time you’re thinking of a cheesy old school horror movie, and you want to see if any reviewers gave it any love – look it up on Rotten Tomatoes and you may be surprised!  Jesus – this whole post sounded like I just jerked off Rotten Tomatoes and gave them a bunch of free publicity.  They could have at least bought me dinner first.
