Joyless & Tiresome, Dull on Every Level
18 October 2019 | by TwistedContentSee all my reviews

I had some hope for "Trick", it being a Halloween themed movie and directed by Patrick Lussier, whose "Drive Angry" is one of my guilty pleasures. Sadly, "Trick" tricked me & turned out to be a bad substandard movie, and not the so-bad-it's-good type.

It took only a few minutes to understand that it's not going to be a great ride and it took an hour for me to give up and check how much of the runtime there's left. "Trick" is an extremely flat and dull horror flick, it will very likely fail to raise any emotions in you and will maybe mildly entertain you. Then again, I can see how "Trick" qualifies for dumb fun. For me it wasn't fun, mostly just dumb. At least half of the plot details, some of the character design and their actions are unrealistic, awkward and, at the worst, irritating. The pacing is actually pretty fast, it's just that the happenings on screen are not very engaging. It doesn't help that the ending twists can be predicted easily as well. Acting's okay, but it doesn't even matter on the background of all the flaws. The killer is seriously dull. Even technically "Trick" is boring, lighting is all the same, doesn't matter if it's day or night, a lot of the camera work (during the uninspired action sequences) looks like a complete overkill & even the original score is cheap and cliche. One thing I think we all hoped for is that there's at least some awesome kills - well, that's not the case. The kills are mostly all the same, unimpressive & not very creative. You know, even Tom Atkins didn't save this movie.

If I'm grasping at straws "Trick" does have two minor qualities - near the end the already n-th unrealistic plot moves made me laugh a bit, it's kinda hilarious. And the other quality is it simply being a halloween themed movie. It offers no treats though. My rating (and it's generous): 3/10.
