    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 ›

    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!

    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 ›

    Let's get right to it: You and I already know that, some 30 years ago, the producers of the "Halloween" franchise took a gamble that didn't pay off. Not only did it not pay off, but few horror films--sequels or not--have been as reviled as this one. So let me tell you upfront that I always kinda liked it.

    Now, to the Blu-ray. Given the film's reputation, it's pretty amazing that we even HAVE a Blu-ray of it, let alone a bonus-packed 30th anniversary deluxe treatment. So if you're only of the few fans of Halloween III, stop reading and go ahead and order your copy. For the rest of you, I have to say that I am very impressed with the HD upgrade Shout Factory has done. No movie from 1982, and certainly not a low-budget horror film, is going to be as sharp as a new movie. But there are moments in this one that come close to looking brand-new. A standout scene is when "Little Buddy" and his parents visit the Silver Shamrock factory. The orange of the jack o' lantern masks positively GLOWS. The film does contain a lot of night shots, and even those aren't overly grainy. The sound mix also seems right. . .for better or worse, get ready to have the Silver Shamrock jingle lodged in your head all over again!

    There's a breezy and informative 33-minute documentary, "Stand Alone: The Making of Halloween III." It's nice to see the original actors like Tom Atkins and Stacey Nelkin, and director Tommy Lee Wallace share fond memories of the production. No ones takes themselves too seriously, acknowledging the film's failure while still expressing pride at being part of it. Atkins comes off particularly affable, all the more enlightening since his performance as a leading man is rather dull.
