A TRICKY TREAT WORLDWIDE REVIEWS:

FANGORIA:
"The most deliciously vile of the blood bath comes from Patricia Chica".
- Heather Buckley

RUE MORGUE:
Great, twisted concept! Loved it!"
- Dave Alexander

THE INDEPENDENT CRITIC:
"Welcome to the world of A Tricky Treat, an immensely satisfying three-minute short centered around one ill-fated man (Leonard Waldner) who not so willingly encounters a family who invites him into their ghoulishly sentimental Halloween tradition."

THE MOVIE GUYS:
"A nasty little ditty that tends to shock, horrify, and make some even gag, but eventually ends on a creepy, funny note."

FILM CLASSICS VIRGIN:
"Gorey, disturbing, and the payoff is perfect!"

STARBURST MAGAZINE:
"A Tricky Treat subverts suburbia better in three minutes than any hackneyed Tim Burton feature."

HORROR MOVIES UNCUT:
"A dainty little treat"

HORROR CABIN:
"It does more in the short time given it than some movies do in 90 minutes. It’s visceral, bloody, creepy and has a certain delicious ending that just freaked me out!"

ALL THINGS HORROR:
"It's a fun watch, definitely not safe for work... a bloody reversal of a revered Halloween tradition you should avoid eating anything while watching lest you regurgitate it."

JENNIFER BODIES (Scotland):
"Absolutely genius!"

ZOMBIE PRANK:
"A fun, lighthearted and heavily-gored short...The gore is phenomenal and considering the short is only two minutes long this might have the highest ratio of gore to run time I’ve ever seen... And you’re gonna love the TWILIGHT ZONE-esque ending!!"

THE LENA GHIO PARADOX:
"You will never see Halloween the same again!"
