Review

Scream Factory brings Halloween III: Season of the Witch to Blu-ray in style, with a lavish special edition the film rightfully deserves... And Scream Factory does a magnificent job redeeming this black sheep of the Halloween family, with a stunning transfer, solid audio and a great collection of bonus materials. --IGN, September 19th, 2012

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch The Magic Pumpkin October 28, 2006
Format:DVD
When talking about the Halloween series, you'll always get the schmuck who says, "oh yeah, then there was that one that didn't even have Michael Myers in it. That was stupid". Yup, I've heard it time and time again. Most of the time this statement comes from someone who hasn't actually seen the film or is just a victim of the general consensus that says this is a terrible film coz it's not a legitimate sequel. Sure there are people out there that honestly just don't like the film, and that's cool coz there isn't a single film that everyone agrees is good. If they have reasons for not liking the film other than the lack of Myers, that's A-OK with me. Here's a little backstory. Halloween 3 was the first and only film in an experiment of John Carpenter's. Carpenter went to great lengths to show the audience at the end of Halloween 2 that Myers is dead, terminated, gone forevermore. Carpenter hated the idea of a second Myers film, but was pressured to write a second(with the help of alot of Budweiser according to Carpenter in a Halloween documentary). He left the directing to someone else coz he felt he'd already made this film before(which he did). After part 2, Carpenter decided to start an entire series of "Halloween" films, each with a different theme. One would be made each year, and come out in theaters around Halloween. If you ask me, that's a pretty cool idea. Halloween 3 was the first film in this new direction. Carpenter producing and Tommy Lee Wallace directing. However, everybody bitched about it and the idea was dead in the water. Carpenter was screwed and abandoned Halloween altogether, then Halloween producer, Akkad, saw dollar signs and brought Myers back with no more association with Carpenter. So that's it. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Open your mind.....Halloween III is a classic! July 4, 2002
By Tommy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me start out by saying that I love Halloween 1 & 2. When it was time for Johm Carpenter and Debra Hill to make another Halloween film, they decided that the Michael Myers character was tired and played out. So they tried something new and fresh with Halloween 3: Season Of The Witch. Being a fan of horror, Carpenter's original idea was to release a new Halloween film every few years, each one with a totally new plot and original characters. His idea was to bring in new directors and serve as a producer for these original scary tales. Well the close-minded public couldn't accept a film with the Halloween heading and no Michael Myers, so the idea was scrapped. Well I used to ditch school to watch this on The Movie Channel in the 80's, so I guess you could say I like it. A sinister warlock that wants to kill thousands of children on Halloween night. Robotic killers that can pull your head right off your shoulders. Masks that use the power of Stonehenge and ancient witchcraft to turn brains into snakes, beetles and millipedes. No way a movie like this would be made today! It almost became "trendy" to bash this film when I was in high school. Now I find more and more people defending it, especially with all the REALLY bad horror sequels that are coming out these days. I'm off to pick up my Silver Shamrock mask...Later!

5.0 out of 5 stars The third Halloween installment was terrifying!! March 10, 2005
Format:DVD
This is in my opinion one of the most terrifying films I have ever seen, the whole premise of this film is enough to frighten hell the out of anybody. The story for the film was written by Nigel "Quatermass" Kneale, and British highly acclaimed science fiction/horror writer. Nigel "Quartermass" Kneale was so overwhelmed and disgusted by the gruesomeness(blood and gore) of this picture, so he sued the producers of this film to have his name removed from the credits. The film has a deeper meaning to it. Many Americans don't realize the hedonism of Halloween or their not concerned with it. Thousands of young children in North America go trick or treating every year on Halloween, yet they don't realize what their celebrating. The film involves a Celtic warlock disguised as a CEO of large company called Silver Shamrock, who is getting ready for a Halloween like no other. Meanwhile somewhere in the rural outskirts of Northern California an old man is getting chased by a group of assilants in charcoal colored business-suits. The assilants appear to have to have no remorse, and no feelings as well. He gets wounded by the assilants in an industrial parking lot. And ends up the hospital, he is treated at the local hospital by Dr. Challis, Mr. Grimbridge tries to warn everyone about the masks by saying their going to kill us all. Dr. Challis thinks that Mr. Grimbridge is hallucinating so decides that he should be put on some drugs to calm him down. Eventually he calms down but at night time one of the assilants steathly comes into the hospital and goes to Mr. Grimbridge' room, he cuts off his life support and then he squeezes his head until his brains burst. Mr. Grimbridge dies and he walks out of the hospital and gets in his car, the car explodes. Dr. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars "Watch the magic pumpkin!" July 10, 2001
Format:DVD
I feel I must defend this movie, even though I'm sure mine isn't the popular opinion in this case. I fondly recall seeing it in the theater when I was 7 years old, in 1982, and remember loving it even then. Sure, the plot has nothing to do with the original Halloween and its many sequels (as has been repeated here ad nauseum), but it's a charming little standalone film and deserves better reviews than it's been getting here! If this movie was not called "Halloween III" and had nothing to do with the Halloween franchise, would the reviews still be so bad? Possibly, but looking at the movie on its own, I can honestly say I've seen a thousand times worse than this. Half the complaints I see are that there's no Michael Meyers, Laurie Strode or Dr. Loomis in it... so what? The movie makes up for that with a decently creepy and unique plot, some rather disgusting scenes if you're even halfway squeamish, and some good old fashioned scenes where the not-so-jaded viewer might even jump.
The movie is classic - "Eight more days till Halloween, Halloween, Halloween... Eight more days till Halloween, Silver Shamrock!" That song is incredibly catchy, memorable to the point where you might find yourself singing it a week later, and is horrific in itself, because it's basically a sugar-coated countdown to mass murder! Don't forget the scarily amusing kids on TV, bopping to the beat, in special masks... Not to mention the bugs - perhaps I'm biased, as the only things that EVER affect me in horror movies are bugs... ugh. At any rate, I tend to think of this movie as at least one of my top 25 favorite horror movies of the 1980's.

Yep, they were honoring the price of Best Buy until they sold out at BB. Some silly BS since it was $19.99 even earlier and yesterday. Sorry Amazon your quick cash grab has lost you a sale.
