What's really going on in that neighbourhood?
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.

O filme começa e você pensa que está vendo um spin-off de Halloween sério.
Passa um tempo e você começa a rir das situações aleatórias que vão surgindo.
O filme chega na metade e você começa a questionar se o filme realmente está sendo sério ou se você está assistindo um trash.
O filme se aproxima do fim e você pensa: ''é, isso realmente é um trash.''
Nos últimos momentos do filme, ele fala "foda-se'' e vira um mega trash.
Vale a pena? Talvez. É engraçado em uns momentos, ridículo em outros, mas não tem absolutamente nada a ver com os 2 anteriores. A única coisa que ele traz de igual é a atmosfera e a trilha sonora levemente modificada.
Hm... Absolutamente não.
Amazing soundtrack by John Carpenter. Very scary. Interesting plot and special effects, cool that it's the only Halloween movie to not have Michael Myers.
No Michael Myers, so it used to get ragged on all the time. Consensus seems to have shifted in the last 5-10 years though. At least it's common enough to find someone who'll stick up for this entry.
Give it a chance!
PS The intro music is amazing!
OK this film is great it takes many risks and has balls. What other movie shows kids getting killed. I love the villain in this movie. The ending was great. Not many complaints from me. I love it it's great also that damn jingle!
as good as the original??
So deeply ridiculous it's kinda good.
If they stuck to the anthology format, this could've been probably the greatest horror series ever. But alas, it was not meant to be.
Thanks a lot, people who whined about the lack of Michael Myers.
