REVIEW: Trick ‘r Treat – Sam

Img_5651

Background

Trick ‘r Treat is the much anticipated (and much delayed) film that interweaves four different storylines that occur on Halloween.  Called on of the best horror films in year, one of the main characters is a little trick-or-treater named Sam.  Sideshow Collectibles has released the Sam character as a 15” tall rotocast vinyl figure.

While little is known about the character, the most haunting image of Trick 'r Treat is Sam, the Spirit of Halloween who enforces the holiday's ancient traditions. To the untrained eye, Sam looks like a little boy out for a night of gathering candy, but what's hidden under the orange footy-pajamas is anything but sweet. The burlap sack with button eyes and a stitched-on smile shrouds something sinister, and while his half-eaten lollipop may look like a tasty treat, when wielded by little Sam, it becomes a deadly weapon. If Sam appears on your doorstep this Halloween, you better be wearing a costume and you better have a bowl full of treats, or you'll be in for one hell of a trick.

Packaging

The Sam figure is packaged in a rather enormous window-front box.  It stands at 17” tall by 8” wide by 5” deep.  The story of the character is printed on the rear, and there are photos on the inside ad outside of the box.  You’ll probably need scissors or a knife to cut through all of the twist ties that hold Sam into his single plastic tray.
