AfterTheParadePeople, could you eventually forget about the title of this movie? Yes we know there's no Michael Myers in it and that's probably the reason why this is quite an intelligent little horror flick about mass media, commodity fetishism and how people in the 20s and even more in the 21st century are affected by its manipulative character.
CrumbThumbernot void of serious problems. like, if you want to just make a horror movie, quit explaining mass murder by completely non-related pagan sacrifices.
and when he throws the mask on the camera, i just started to laugh. some of the acting is ridiculous. when the main guy sees the kid killed and raises his fists and it is comically bad. and the unattached arm. just pretty awful acting.
and the relationship is really unbelievable.
but despite all this, it isnt awful. it is entertaining enough through mystery and a good soundtrack to make it worth a watch if you are a fan of horror.
saudadeHappy, happy Halloween
Happy, happy Halloween
popfactorI'm surprised that the majority of comments are negative. I thought this film was really entertaining! After seeing this I'm glad I persevered through Halloween II (which I found pretty lacklustre).
LarussoFun and entertaining. And it has some cool effects. I wish people would get the fuck over its name and appreciate it as a stand alone movie.
imokaylarryA fun and silly throwback to paranoia horror sci-fi like Bodysnatchers and Quatermass. In my mind both Halloween 2 & 3 succeed for completely different reasons. 2 has absolutely no plot of its own, simply extending the plot of the first film by a few hours - but it does it with panache, and there’s a real command over the filmmaking. Yes it’s sometimes clumsy, but so’s the first one. It gets away with this clumsiness better however because of a radically different tone that takes itself less seriously, clearly influenced by giallo, and frankly nailing it, though some of the deaths could do with being a bit more grizzly. If only there was a little more substance to it, or at least a plot. That’s where Halloween 3 comes in: it’s all plot, and makes a good fist of it too. It may lack the intoxicating style of 2 and the characters and iconography from the rest of the series, but it’s a memorable stand alone film that’s iconic in its own right. Again, it’s very silly and not to be taken seriously, but that’s perfect for Halloween viewing.
SiskoidAn artifact from when the Halloween films were supposed to be a thematic anthology, Halloween III: Season of the Witch probably gets ignored or trashed because it isn't a Michael Myers flick. Or maybe audiences find the awkward mix of science-fiction and horror tropes not to their liking. But I tend to give films extra points if they're a little bit bonkers. I think this fits the bill (but look away now lest you be spoiled every surprise)...
Except for the fact he scored and produced the film. I would call that "something".
Trust me, the whole vibe is Carpenter.
Michael Myers movies sucked after II anyways. I really wish they would have buried that character and continued to make cool flicks like this.
Prof. LumpcicleI seriously can't believe people dislike this movie so much. Give it a different name and it's a horror classic because it's a Carpenter film through and through.
The Last BaronThis movie really isn't as bad as you've probably heard from, like, anyone. No Michael Meyers, so it's a little strange this is billed as the third movie in the series, but it's a neat little ghost story. It doesn't offer up the same scares as the rest of the series, but it's quite a creepy little tale.
Worth watching if you come into it with an open mind.
shitmoviesAmazing flick. I don't even like horror but I loved this.
RyanGerardMIts okay, that's all I can say really. Would have liked it slightly better if it was a stand alone film and not part of the Halloween series.
BeasleyOnFilmIt's fine. That's as complimentary as I can be.
RonetOne of the 50 greatest sequels of all time? What have you been smoking, Empire Online?
Joris B.@ Quanthor ''Give it a different name and it's a horror classic because it's a Carpenter film through and through.''
This movie doesn't have much to do with John Carpenter accept for the Halloween name.
And by the way, I think it's a good thing Michael Myers doesn't appear in this movie, because he was definitely dead at the end of Halloween II.
