The Guest Lists For AICN’S TRICK’R’TREAT Screening At The Mann’s Chinese In Hollywood On Thursday Night!

Hey, everyone. “Moriarty” here. I’m just going to forward Warner Bros. all of the e-mail I got from people desperate to get into this screening. That should help them understand just how many people want to see this, and just how much they’re intrigued by what they’ve seen so far. If you do not appear on the lists below, I apologize. I ended up getting way more mail than I could handle on this one, and I did my best to simply fill it based on when people e-mailed in. I didn’t cherrypick names. I didn’t pull at random. It was first-come first-serve, with the exception of people who came to the SEX DRIVE screening we had in Woodland Hills. I read every e-mail, and if you were at that screening and mentioned it, I made sure you made it into this list as a thanks. That was a hard screening to get to because of time and location, and I owe those folks. Everyone who is on these lists, you should have been sent an e-mail to confirm, but double check that your name and your guests’ names are here. If anyone drops out, I’ll be sending out some additional e-mails, and if you want to take your chances at last-minute cancellations, we’ll have a standby line at the Chinese, and we’ll start letting in from it ten minutes before the movie starts, so you still have a chance to get in. Remember... costumes aren’t mandatory, but they sure will be fun, and I hope to see you guys there tomorrow. Here’s the original list and the second list I made when the extra seats opened up today. Sorry for the crazy caps, but when I cut and pasted this, turns out I was using an all-caps font in Word, and I really don't have the energy to go through and correct it for this version of the list:

    Still Didnt Make It

    by choonie

    Damm. With a 4:34pm timestamp from Saturday, I definitely thought I had a chance, What a shit,

    dammit

    i'm never going to see this overhyped movie. :(

    Is this coming on DVD

    this year or what????

    What time does it start again?

  • Oct. 22, 2008, 11:12 p.m. CST

    weird. I emailed literally a half hour after the story hit....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    ....maybe Mori just hates me. I don't believe I said my handle in the email though. <p> Oh well...

  • Oct. 22, 2008, 11:21 p.m. CST

    Mori....saw your response on the other TB....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Shit. I don't even know which email I used to start up my account originally. Is that what it is-- you check to see who is who through that? <p>DAMN! Alright. Next time hook a brother up! <p> Thanks for looking into it though...

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 1:26 a.m. CST

    Choonie...

    by drew mcweeny

    Impossible. I just double-checked and anyone who e-mailed me at 4:30 last Saturday got in. <P>Same thing with you, Danny. If you e-mailed a half-hour after the story went up, you got in. It's not possible you didn't. <P>I've checked spam folders just in case. I don't know how you couldn't have gotten in. <P>Both of you... e-mail me again from the SAME ADDRESS YOU USED, and include your talkback names in the e-mail. I want to figure out how it's possible you weren't picked.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 2:45 a.m. CST

    If one guest is switching...

    by barneyshouldbeputdown

    What do we do? I reserved three names - mine and two other guys. The third guy can't go, but the other guy's girlfriend would like to go in his place. Is that possible? Does she just give the third guy's name at the door? Or is this a picture-ID thing? Should I e-mail you with the switch, or is this just too much trouble? :)

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 5:05 a.m. CST

    Barney...

    by drew mcweeny

    ... your only approved guests are on the list. At this point, if everyone spends the next 24 hours playing substitutions, that's all I'll be doing. If someone's not coming, let me know, but the spot goes to the next person who applied.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 6:12 a.m. CST

    Thanks

    by barneyshouldbeputdown

    Understood and will send you the note.

    Probably on DVD next Spring

    by HarryBlackPotter

    Warner's have been taking the piss for sure. They need to get this either in as many theaters as possible or give it a big DVD launch - and soon!

    You guys are in for a treat.

    by Veraxus

    I was at the Screamfest screening a couple weeks ago. The movie was fantastic. Not so much scary as just a really goddamn fun.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 11:02 a.m. CST

    I EMAILED LIKE TWO DAYS LATER!

    by Frightreviews

    AND I ALREADY SAW IT! WHY WASNT I PICKED!!!!<br> <br> LOL. Have fun guys, it's a great flick. Mori if you get a single seat though... my wife couldnt get in at Screamfest (I barely got in myself and I was hosting the damn Q&A) and shes been bummed since. Email begins with Loomis, its got both our names but just her would suffice...

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 1:15 p.m. CST

    what a bummer, i sent my email in on sunday morning...

    by maceodkat

    i just resent it in hopes of getting into that second theater opening

  • Oct. 24, 2008, 1:25 a.m. CST

    Awesome. Simply Awesome.

    by Frank Cross

    I just returned from the screening, and can now confirm Warner Brothers missed the boat by not putting this out as counter programming against Saw. It would be a mistake to dump this film to DVD in the Spring. This is a celebration of horror, and everything that makes a person excited that it's Halloween. The storytelling is smart, and for once, doesn't assume that you have to torture people to entertain a horror audience. WB, just so you know how effective this movie is - this movie you want to dump to DVD - I'll give you one reason: This movie will extend beyond the base. Trust me. My girlfriend, who hates horror films, was good enough to be dragged to this event. On the drive home, after showing no enthusiasm for what she just saw, she started talking about the film. About the story. She got it. And she wanted to see it again, just to see where some of the stories connected, to catch more surprises. We had a 20 minute debate about what exactly "Sam" was. Was he a vengeful demon? Or the sacred Saint of Halloween? We made the decision that tomorrow we're going to make a point to tell our coworkers and friends about this film. Because we're sick of Saw and Hostel and remakes. This movie is what you want in October. Do not dump this movie. Warner Brothers could actually have a horror movie that people remember besides the Exorcist.

    THIRD SCREENING! THIRD SCREENING!

    by JasonGrey

    Just got back from the event as well and I'm kicking myself for not signing up for the second screening. This movie exceeded my expectations and all the folks over at Warner Brothers need to release this thing next year for the Halloween season. Trick R Treat is now the definitive Halloween movie and little Sam has secured a spot as one of the great horror icons EVER.

    The Perfect Halloween Movie

    by r3write

    Halloween will just seem like any other day after today. Watching this movie is the perfect experience for the holiday. Everyone might not get to see it now. But when it does, this will be what "A Christmas Story" is to its holiday for years and years to come. "It's a Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Carol" are movies that are classics, but you watch "A Christmas Story" because it speaks to you as an experience of what it could be like. Its about growing up, but at the same time looking in on the little details of what makes the holiday. That and its on for 24 hours so its the the perfect movie to watch when you're not doing anything for christmas. John Carpenter's "Halloween" is a classic, but "Trick r Treat" takes the tone, nostalgia, along with everything you want and more of capturing that spirit of the holiday. This is the perfect movie for when you're sitting down with nothing to do on halloween, wishing you had a scarier movie to watch while getting that same feel of what it could've been like. Mori is right, horror movies and halloween in general are certainly lacking than what they used to be. But at least we'll have "Trick r Treat" in keeping both they're spirits alive. thanks again to everyone involved with getting this to happen. it has been an honor.

  • Oct. 24, 2008, 12:55 p.m. CST

    Thanks for a great time!

    by Mr.Krinkle

    Trick 'r Treat was one of the most entertaining horror films I've seen in quite some time. It represents a type of film that isn't made anymore. This movie has monsters, serial killers, vampires, werewolves, zombies, all inner cut with four revolving stories that come together brilliantly. Think Creepshow with Pulp Fictions' narrative style. Please release this film in theatres WB. You can't be that dumb. This is the perfect Halloween movie that has a chance to become iconic. That means you'll be making money off it for many years to come. Forget the straight to DVD and release it next October, please. That is when it should come out, at Halloween time. The movie cost like 12 million to make (and it looks like 25 mill). I'm sure the WB would make that back opening weekend alone. And the "child death" stuff is not going to make parents crazy if that's what they're afraid of. The film is the most family friendly R rated horror film I've ever seen. Please let the rest of this country see how great it is. Let us be the judges. Then you can throw it out on DVD. I'm sure you'll see a profit. Thanks to Moriarty (you rule!), AICN, Legendary, and Michael Dougherty for an amazing film and experience.

    Amazing film

    by CoffeeShop

    I was lucky enough to get into BNAT last year and saw it. I'm usually really skeptical about modern horror or halloween films, but I absolutely loved this movie. I agree, it needs to come out in theaters and soon! Mr. Krinkle is right, I think this film has a chance to become iconic.

  • Oct. 24, 2008, 8:35 p.m. CST

    Ever notice...

    by bunksteve

    How, at least when it comes to this film, the people who really loved the movie express WHY they love the movie by citing specific elements of the movie... and the people who seem to hate it just use the usual dumbshit internet hate rhetoric. I'm not saying that we should base somebody's intelligence by the comments they make on the internet... but if the middle finger fits...
