Patrick Lussier Returns to Horror with Slasher Feature Trick: First Trailer and Poster

Canadian and American filmmaker Patrick Lussier's next film is titled Trick. This film fan knows Lussier from his competent storytelling and shooting of Vampires II & III, which this writer saw for the first time, recently. Both films are amazingly well done - for an indie production. With Trick, Lussier is sticking with horror as killer Patrick "Trick" Weaver returns, after a tragedy several years earlier. Now, Trick is returning every Halloween, to finish what he started. Trick was co-written by Todd Farmer. Farmer and Lussier have worked together on My Bloody Valentine 3D (2009) and Drive Angry (Bloody Disgusting). And, their latest stars: Omar Epps (Dracula 2000), Ellen Adair, Kristina Reyes, Jamie Kennedy and Tom Atkins. The first poster and trailer, for the film, are hosted here.

The first trailer shows Trick, behind a pumpkin mask. Everyone is playing a game. But, Trick is here to play-for-keeps. The bodies pile up as the authorities search for this mysterious killer. Now, it is only a matter of time before Trick kills again.

As well, a new poster is available for the film. The poster shows the masked killer and states: "always choose treat." In dark reds and blacks, this graphic sets the tone for a horror film that should not be missed, later this month.

Trick will show on Digital platforms and in theatres this October 18th. On this date, horror fans should check their local listings, especially in major theatrical locations (New York City, Los Angeles). Though, the film will show wide across the U.S., thanks to RLJ Entertainment. Check out the intriguing trailer for Trick below.
