Halloween: Trick Or Treat?
This highly informative DVD traces the pagan origins and history of Halloween. The Pagan/Occult calendar of Druids, Witches, Pagans and Satanists marks Halloween as one of their highest "holy days". This DVD uncovers the mystic Druidic rites and ceremonies with which "Samhain" (Halloween) was originally observed 4000 years ago. The occult rituals seen in this DVD are real and not re-enactments. Parental Guidance is strongly advised.
All the seemingly innocent symbolism of Halloween - black cats, snakes, broomsticks, bonfires, "trick-or-treat", jack-o-lanterns, apple dunking and costumes - has its roots in Sorcery, Witchcraft and Satanism. Parents' responsibilities are challenged to decide whether to allow their children to participate in celebrations which glorify Pagan Occultism.
This DVD features Chuck Smith, Caryl Matrisciana and Hal Lindsey, as well as a number of Witches, Satanists and Law-Enforcement Officials.

While this documentary does share pertinent information on connections to ancient witchcraft and sorcery with modern occult practice, and the influence of such practice on entertainment media (specifically film), this film is simply too dated to contain much relevance, other than its very basic ideas. Although it was undoubtedly made with good intentions, it rarely quotes God's Word on very important spiritual matters such as following other gods, occult practices, etc.
This is not meant as a criticism of the documentary filmmakers...they undoubtedly held Christilike intentions. Also, while England the surrounding isles are an important influence upon the practice of witchcraft, very little if any attention was giving to this growing phenomenon in North America, especially the United States. By some accounts, "Wicca" or "witchcraft" is growing at a rate faster than any other religion, save perhaps for the Assemblies of God in Christian groups.
In conclusion, this documentary brings up some very important points for concerned Christians around the world. However, its execution and direction are dated at best, and perhaps lack cultural significance nowadays, in the light of so many technological and cultural changes.

This movie leaves no doubt about participating. I was beginning to see some of the positive in Trick or Treat such as the willingness for so many to give to strangers, neighbors getting together, and the kids having fun but knowing what else goes on this night is something every Christian should see. There are many, many scary images and testimonies in this which a child would be scared by.

This movie will make you think twice about celebrating Halloween. The movie itself is a little dated (the graphics are hysterical) but the truth always stands the test of time. The disscusion is very graphic so do not watch with little ones around. All in all very informative.

This film was awesome, it's a learning experience. Our son was going to help set up with some parties until he watched this film, now he wants nothing to do with it. It opened his eyes as well as ours. Our son is 15 and he loves the Lord very much. Everybody was telling him that there's nothing wrong with it but this film got through to him.

This is a good documentary to show those who celebrate Halloween and think nothin of it or even those who have no idea what Halloween is all about but still celebrate each year. The DVD is pretty old and cheesy but the message is still out there.
