AtmosFX, Legendary Pictures, and filmmaker Michael Dougherty have joined together to create a stunning new digital decoration that captures the spirit of Dougherty’s 2007 indie horror classic “Trick ’r Treat.”
The AtmosFX “Trick ’r Treat” Digital Decoration features Sam, the mysterious child in the burlap-sack mask, who ties together the feature film’s intertwined Halloween-themed stories. These all-new vignettes will remain true to the theme of the original movie, in which Sam dispenses his own unique brand of grisly justice on anyone who does not adhere to the traditions of Halloween.
Like its R-rated film counterpart, this digital decoration features horror-themed content and is not suitable for younger audiences.
AtmosFX’s “Trick ’r Treat” Digital Decoration will be available as a high-definition (1080p) digital download in late September, 2016.

Just ordered some of her Anise & Clove candles. Pure Halloween. So many people who visited the porch last year commented on the amazing scent. Toasted pumpkin lids mixed with the sweet dark scents of anise and clove really added to the atmosphere. And the two together make something entirely different than the licorice/clove smells you're thinking of.

So it occurred to me today that this year's display will be the 30th anniversary of me doing a Yard Haunt in one form or another. THIRTY YEARS of offering tributes to the Halloween gods. Sacrifices for the High Holiday.
A comparison shot below... 1986 and 2015.
I still remember setting up that ghost. My brother and I stuck a flashing strobe light in its head. And I have absolutely no idea what made us do it. We just silently went to work. My dad had foam sheets in the garage, so my brother just figured he'd make tombstones out of them. No how-to's (no internet), no books from the library. Weird. Just kinda happened.
We've watched all of these films...though I'm not sure I could sit down and write out what happened in which films and what exactly is going on...or why there were multiple Milas in one or a few of the movies.
But I'm on board.
Saw one end cap at Home Goods with a few Halloween items, but not too much out there other than Michael's (though it's still too hot for Halloween shopping).
Looks like the Halloween event that is Roger's Gardens takes place on September 2nd.
