Halloween III : Season Of The Witch (1982)
I think this was a simple case of a marketing scheme gone wrong. As if someone said, hey Halloween and its sequel were such huge hits the name alone will sell the movie. This probably worked initially but I think it really hurt the film upon its video release. Halloween series or not I like the movie and always will and for all those who say it sucks because Michael Myers is not in it they are wrong on both levels. Season Of The Witch is cool and Michael Myers is in it. There is a scene where Halloween is playing on t.v. and there you go. There is your fucking Michael Myers. Now you have to come up with a new argument!
The Fog) plays the hero and John Carpenter regular Nancy Kyes also shows up as a bitchy, nagging wife.
For me Season Of The Witch is a classic horror flick and a great choice for younger kids to pull off the shelf at Halloween time. For a kid this movie is pretty damn creepy and as an adult you have to appreciate it for its camp value. For a good time with exploding children's heads check this one out that is if you can get past the fact that it is part of the Halloween series.
