Halloween III: Season of the Witch

"Terrible"

Halloween III: Season of the Witch Review


It's almost understandable that John Carpenter made Halloween III without Michael Myers -- or any actual reference to the first two films. Why? Well, Mikey burned to a crisp at the end of Halloween II. And lord knows, people can't just get back up and start killing after they burn into oblivion. The story this time out involves an evil toymaker, cursed masks, and the potential death of every child hunting for Halloween candy. The masks have little bits of one of the rocks from Stonehenge in them. If only our hero can stop the "kill" signal from being sent to the masks on Halloween night!

Oh boy, this is a howler, justly ranked as one of the worst films in history and shocking in that it didn't kill Carpenter's career outright.
