Production in Vancouver is scheduled to begin mid-November on Trick or Treat, a new horror film from X2: X-Men United and Superman Returns co-writer Michael Dougherty, according to Production Weekly.

Dougherty wrote the screenplay and will make his feature length directorial debut on the film which interweaves four tales of chaos and malevolence and has been loosely described as Pulp Fiction set on Halloween night.

Dougherty's previously made the Halloween themed animated short Season's Greetings, that involves the traumatic theft of a candy bag on Halloween night. The boy who put the "trick" into "trick-or-treat" confronts the boogie man thief.
