Trick or Treat italian poster

A rock star is brought back from the dead when his final album is played backwards in 1986’s Trick or Treat. The horror flick was one of a slew of movies – both high brow (Blue Velvet, Manhunter, Crimes of Hearts) and low (King Kong Lives, The Cat’s Eye, Maximum Overdrive) – shot in North Carolina for Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis before his De Laurentiis Entertainment Group went bankrupt in 1988.

Trick or Treat features early work from legendary cinematographer Robert Elswit (Nightcrawler, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and several films for Paul Thomas Anderson) and an uncredited dialogue polish from Final Destination scribes Glen Morgan and James Wong.
