    HA! I thought I was the only one who remembered that movie. I'd love to have Trick Or Treat on DVD as well. You gotta love a movie that has Ozzy Osbourne playing a televangelist and Gene Simmons as a DJ.

    I have not heard anything about a pending release though.

    Awesome 80's metal music in there. I think I still have the soundtrack.

    Been waiting patiently for this movie to come out on DVD. I figured no one else was since I've never seen it discussed. Glad to see there are a few other fans of this flick.

    I still have the soundtrack CD myself (along with three other Fastway CDs). I really liked that band... time to go dig 'em out and give them a spin again.

    I just checked imdb.com and it lists Dino De Laurentis Group as one of the producers of this movie, and since theyre pretty big into the home video scene, you would think they would want to get this out in R1 as soon as possible. It also shows Warner as being the Distributor of the movie, and theyre pretty good about releasing 80s movies, so hopefully something will come soon.

    Count me in as one who would buy Trick or Treat. I haven't seen it in 14 years but I have fond memories of this flick.

    Trick or Treat rules! Get it out in anamorphic widescreen, 5.1 on the Fastway music, and i'am there!

    I've asked about this too. A cheesy but entertaining flick.

    I saw this movie in the theater back in the 80's. I'd love to have this in my collection. There's something about 80's horror films that can't be beat!

    I picked up a copy a few weeks ago at Circuit City for 6.99. It looks likes it probably is just a full frame trasfer from an old VHS master but it is watchable on my old 45" Mitsubishi RPTV. It looks like it is full of motion artifacts or something (very blocky looking) on my PC though. The 2.0 soundtrack is decent as well.

    I can't believe what I'm reading here. I looked on CC website and saw nothing.

    Is it a Canadian release that wondered into the US?

    TRICK OR TREAT is on DVD from Platinum Entertainment. Check Best Buy, Circuit City, or Wherehouse stores in the discount section. I paid $5.99. It's not widescreen, but the print was decent. For the price you can't complain.
