Children are taught to never take candy from strangers, except on Hallowe’en when their parents send them out to beg for it. Annually, a parade of little goblins and ghouls shout “Trick or Treat!” at our doors, having no real interest in resorting to the tricky part. As we pass out the candy kisses, peanuts, and shrunken Kit Kats in our doorway, we have the opportunity to mention a few movie quotes for their consideration. Here are the 10 best movie quotes that can add an extra treat to the traditional Hallowe’en doorway experience.
