Halloween III: Season of the Witch
...and now the earth will run with blood again!
Dr. Daniel Challis and Ellie Grimbridge stumble onto a gruesome murder scheme when Ellie's novelty-salesman father, Harry, is killed while in possession of a strange mask made by the Silver Shamrock mask company. The company's owner, Conal Cochran, wants to return Halloween to its darker roots using his masks -- and his unspeakable scheme would unleash death and destruction across the country.
McDonald's Happy Meal Version of 'The Wicker Man': Mass-produced, induced-demand, consumer-driven, standardized, repeatable, profitable. The 1980's Reagan/Thatcher Era transformed Seasonal Ritualized Mass Sacrifice into a slick corporate entity delivering The Good Times And Good News to All The Children Everywhere! Benevolent weather patterns and bountiful crop yield became positive quarterly projections, reaped bonus dividends, and investor satiation. Ultimately, does it matter which gods we are being sacrificed to without ever knowing their names? Those names change. The appetites of which the names are but a key to the mouth of the throne only grow. That said, Burger King or the aforementioned really missed out on a tie-in with the Silver Shamrock Co. in Autumn 1982!!!
I love that this is all underway basically to "play a joke" on the children. I aspire to one day be just like Conal Cochran.
Happy Hollieween, everyone!
I know this movie has a bad reputation, but it needs another look by those who have snubbed this Myers-less entry. Scream Factory presents us with a fine widescreen transfer and great sound to give people a fairly inexpensive purchase for October 31st. Erase Michael Myers for your memory for 98 minutes. See the movie as a scary Halloween story and not as “that one Halloween that doesn’t count.”
Dear Halloween III: Season of the Witch-
I know you've had a tough life. You've been shit upon now for over 30 years. It's only now recently that people began to see you for the film you aren't instead of the film you aren't.
Fuck Myers, man. You didn't need him. This isn't that film and I don't see why people won't give you a chance based on your own merit. Any film with both Tom Atkins and Dan O'Herlihy is okay with me.
Yes, the first Halloween was the only film that really scared me as I watched it as a child, it is true. But man, you got that fucking bad ass kiddie kill going for you. How…
My rating is a little misleading because I really love this movie. Sure, it isn't perfect, but minor pitfalls placed next to John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's spot-on score and some truly horrific moments (that murder in the hospital, anyone?)—not to mention Dean Cundey's fantastic cinematography, evident in the opening credits and the shot featured on the poster—only add to the charm. Having watched this two years in a row now, it very much feels like necessary Halloween viewing, a film that gets me in the spirit of my favorite day of the year more so than the original entry in the series (or any other horror film, for that matter).
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

(bonus review! Happy Samhain!!!!!!)
No, Michael is NOT in this one...but it's still good enough to work. The plan with the masks is pretty evil and unique, the acting is decent, but one of the characters from the previous 2 movies should have somehow made an appearance. It does seem disconnected from the previous two movies but I'm rating it as a separate movie (as if I had no idea, it was part of the Halloween movies). Whether you like this movie or not, the tune that plays in the commercials will definitely stick in your head after watching this movie. "GOOD" 6/10 or 3/5
So I’m trying to get through all these Halloween and I don’t know if I’ll get through all these in reviews but I’ll try as hard as I can plus it’s the holidays and I got nothing to do so here’s another one of these Halloween movies and I guess there’s no Michael Myers in it. I guess it’s a Where’s Waldo situation or something because he’s not in it. Maybe I got to look in the background closer because I was tricked into watching a movie about about Halloween masks. How dare these people actually try to set themselves apart and try something different. Apparently, from what the interwebs have told me, Halloween III: Season of the Witch is…
Halloween III is a 1982 horror sequel. The film is directed by Tommy Lee Wallace (IT, Fright Night part 2) and stars Tom Atkins (The Fog) and Dan O' Herlihy (Robocop) . Although this instalment was not directed by John Carpenter, he did co produce and create the soundtrack.
Season of the Witch is a numbered sequel in the Halloween franchise, however, It does not feature Michael Myers as the antagonist or have much to do with the other films, other than being set at Halloween. The film centres around the mysterious Silver Shamrock company and their wildly popular Halloween masks which are being snapped up by children everywhere. When a local shop owner is murdered by a suit in…
Not too bad. The ending is awful.
Hoop-tober Film #43: Aero Theater Horror-thon
I know a lot of people who give this movie a hard time simply because it's titled "halloween", and it has nothing to do with Michael Myers. This obviously has to be put aside, because it's a totally different film. As a stand alone movie in itself, I find that this is a very solid one. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it had an interesting and unique storyline that kept me guessing. The actors were well cast, and all did a great job. Good movie.
fuck when that kid puts on the mask and then he turns into bugs i was out fuck that noise omfg
Fantastic score and mood. Could have been executed better. Should have just been called Season of the Witch.
A blend of personal favorites and films that I consider to be the "greatest" (as well as some of my…
