Eddie Weinbauer is a rocker goddamn it! Screw all those jocks and preppies at his high school, they just don't understand man! His favorite rock musician is the outspoken Sammi Curr. So when Sammi dies in a hotel fire, Eddie is crushed. He sits in his room and pouts while rocking out. Then he gets his hands on a rare recording of Sammi and it changes his whole life...cause it's possessed! Oh fook!!!

Weird stuff happens and the next thing you know a demon is slithering out of some earphones and molesting/melting a sweaty naked chick...and that's just the beginning because soon Sammi himself returns to kill!!  Eddie ends up being not a true metalhead after all because he's against all the killing.  Poser.  So now it's up to him and his cute girlfriend to stop the electrified demon spirit of Sammi from killing everybody on the planet...or at least his high school.

TRICK OR TREAT is a fun 80's cheese-metal horror movie. Terrible 80's rock, "Skippy" from "Family Ties" completely miscast as the main character, cameo appearances by Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons, quick pace (the stuff right after Sammi's return is the highlight of the movie), lots of high school scenes, 80's hair metal merch, nice little topless scene, 80's fashions.

Not quiet as awesome as BLACK ROSES, but better than ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTMARE. If you dig goofy 80's horror then it's worth checking out. Might make an interesting double-feature with BRAINSCAN.
Mic hanging way down.
