About a year ago, 13-year-old Emily DePrimio launched a KickStarter campaign for her horror film, "Carver." She eventually raised about $32,000 and then co-wrote and co-directed the movie with her dad.
Today, we have a trailer for the film, which is about a group of teenagers who are haunted by a despicable act they committed on Halloween when they were younger. Their actions caused the deaths of three innocent people. Now, on the anniversary of those deaths, an ominous calling card in the form of a carved pumpkin has been placed at each of their homes. Someone is out for revenge. The question is... who?

A calling card in the form of a pumpkin? Wouldn't that be a calling pumpkin?
"Someone is out for revenge. The question is... who?"
Charlie Brown, *sshole.
God f*ck the Queen, they'll make any old sh*t these days.

I like how it says when they were younger, but it doesn't say how long ago, then it says on THE anniversary, without specifying the years since, not on AN anniversary.
Haven't even seen the damned trailer and already I'm totally annoyed.

Godawful acting...token nig..er, I mean negro...lousy music....slow-mo flashback allusions...sh*tty framing...sh*tty music change...sh*ttier titling...I like how they're kissing, an intimate moment, but the f*cker shoots it as a medium shot...ridiculous costumes...big-titted chick running from casual-walking goofy-dressed killer...another token nig..er, negro...no tempo, flat delivery, annoying bland music over "scary" part...more sh*tty acting...
Probably the worst thing I've seen here all week, and that's truly an accomplishment.

I like how the pumpkin has an actual calling card...so why the f*ck did he bother carving the f*cking pumpkins?!

Looks like she is inspired by Trick īR Treat , but props to her dad helping her pursuiting her dream (and the people spending their money) on a horrorfan !!

Trick 'R Treat was way underrated and a very well made movie.
Hoping using this girl's name as Director (no mention of her daddy in the trailer) isn't just a gimmick. Good for her, but the movie still looks like sh*t.
Only a couple more months till Halloween!
Sam from Trick R' Treat was a memorable character, and the movie has probably become my favorite H-Ween movie. It really captures the essence of the season, at least it did for me.

^ Think it has some funny moments, reminds me of Penny Dreadful and Tales from the crypt !
It doesn't take itself too seriously and again, from a childs view, it would probably offer a few scares, but You can't compare it to the real horror classics like the first Elm Street etc.

As as kid, Elm Street scared the piss out of me! That and Texas Chainsaw
The 80īs had some very funny and creepy horror flicks and there are so many I never watched, including those three, put them on my watchlist !!
You remember Dressed to kill and The Entity ???
propermeltwrites: on September 8th, 2014 at 2:11:48 PM
Not the first one, but The Entity yeah although it's been a while!

Michael Dougherty announced in October 2009 that he is planning a sequel,but later stated that there were "no active development nor an attempt at a pitch."
He went on to say that "[the] more fans continue to support and spread the movie, the more likely it is that Sam will rise from the pumpkin patch once more."
Dougherty helped create a short promotional Easter trailer for FEARnet's Trick 'r Treat 24-hour marathon for Halloween 2011; the trailer showed a family's Easter celebration turning into one of horror, with Sam watching the chaos outside whilst wearing rabbit ears.
In October 2013, Dougherty and Legendary Pictures officially announced a sequel, titled Trick 'r Treat 2.
Dougherty said he plans to "shake it up a little bit" with the sequel.

@ Proper and Porn
Its totally worth checking out.
I wouldn't count on a sequel soon. The first one was shelved for over year I believe. It was supposed to come out in 2007 but ended up just going straight to DVD in '08, from what I remember.
And Fear.net made 3 shorts with Sam. The 3rd one I already posted.
