Tomorrow night, October 30, director/co-writer Michael Dougherty will live-tweet about TRICK ’R TREAT, delivering running commentary and offering a rare behind-the-scenes look at the film. To join in, fans can go to and choose a way to watch TRICK, then hit Play at exactly 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET and follow along at the @Legendary Twitter account. Viewers can join the conversation using #LegendaryHalloweenatHome, and the movie will be followed by a special Instagram Live Q&A featuring Dougherty and Nerdist.

First released in 2009, TRICK interweaves four wickedly entertaining stories set on All Hallows’ Eve, dealing with zombie children, serial killers and other creatures of the night, tied together by Sam, a little sack-headed figure representing the spirit of Halloween. Legendary recently reissued two previously released TRICK ’R TREAT graphic novels in a special compendium with a new introduction by Dougherty; see more info here.
