After bringing blood-spattered scares to Cupid's big day with 2009's My Bloody Valentine and raising hell in 2011's Drive Angry, director/co-writer Patrick Lussier and co-writer Todd Farmer tap into Halloween horror with their new film Trick (co-starring the legendary Tom Atkins), and following its theatrical and VOD release in October, RLJE Films will unwrap Trick on Blu-ray and DVD beginning December 17th, just in time for last-minute holiday shopping.

TRICK features Omar Epps ("House"), Ellen Adair (“Homeland”), Kristina Reyes (“Blindspot”), Jamie Kennedy (Scream franchise), and Tom Atkins (Escape From New York).

On Halloween night in 2015, Patrick “Trick” Weaver massacred his classmates at a costume party. After being arrested, he managed to escape police custody, but not before being shot five times by Detective Mike Denver (Epps). Everyone believes Trick must be dead, but when a masked killer reappears the following Halloween, and every Halloween after that, they realize the nightmare is not over. With Trick wreaking havoc and killing innocent people in increasingly terrifying ways, Denver will stop at nothing to finish what he started and bring the carnage to an end.
TRICK DVD and Blu-ray include the following bonus features:
