For as many times as I have failed in my 30 Days of Horror, I have almost successfully watched Trick 'r Treat on or around Halloween. It's a great movie, and depending on how Halloween goes this year, I might just watch it again.

It's one of those movies that you'll probably catch yourself saying "Where do I know that person from?" So let's break it down.

  • Anna Paquin (Laurie) — This one is obvious. She was Rogue in the X-Men movies, and also Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood. Not to forget The Piano and Jane Eyre as well.
  • Brian Cox (Mr. Kreeg) — Another X-Men alum, he played William Stryker in X-Men 2. He's also been in a ton of other things, but most importantly played Captain O'Hagan in Super Troopers.
  • Dylan Baker (Steven) — Played Dr. Curt Connors in the original Spider-Man trilogy.
  • Leslie Bibb (Emma) — Had small roles as the reporter in the Iron Man movies, and played Carley Bobby in Talladega Nights. She also plays Meegan in The League.
  • Brett Kelly (Charlie) — You most likely recognize him from Bad Santa.
