Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

The one Halloween sequel in which He doesn't come home, Halloween III: Season of the Witch was producer John Carpenter's attempt to get the series away from the original's psycho-on-the-loose story line and turn it into a vehicle for more far-fetched Halloween-themed horror tales. Incredibly, the fans voted for more of the same and Carpenter walked away for others to rehash the Michael Myers plot line in a succession of look-alike movies that are still turning up every few years.

After the mysterious death of a toyshop owner, a doctor (Tom Atkins) and the man's daughter (Stacy Nelkin) investigate the Irish-dominated Northern California community of Santa Mira, a company town owned by the Silver Shamrock Novelty corporation. Atkins and Nelkin are typical low-rent horror movie protagonists, dim bulbs who discover an Invasion of the Body Snatchers-style conspiracy involving sharp-suited corporate robots. But guest star Dan O'Herlihy steals the film as a Celtic joke tycoon who hates the way American kids are despoiling the religious spirit of Samhain and decides to teach them a nasty lesson. His scheme, which involves a stolen Stonehenge megalith and a techno-magic spell that turns the heads of TV watchers into writhing masses of snakes and insects, is value for money, and O'Herlihy mixes enough serious malice into the charm to come across as a great screen bad guy. --Kim Newman

5.0 out of 5 stars What an underrated horror movie ! Aug. 23 2004
By Nick
Format:DVD
There might be NO Michael Meyers....but I am scared to death by this movie ! I remember first seeing it at the drive-in when I was about 9 years old...I couldn't sleep for days afterwards. Seeing it as an adult now might not be as horrifying, but I still think it's one of the best horror films of the 80s. The most scary scene is when the little kids watch a special tv program on Halloween night with their masks on...I'll let you discover what happens ! Honesttly, don't be put off by those bad reviews. The DVD offers a nice image and sound too.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS BRILLIANT Nov. 11 2007
Format:DVD
I LOVE THIS MOVIE IT'S AS SCARY AS ANY OTHER HALLOWEEN MOVIE IT'S DEFILINTELY MY FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN MOVIE. DON'T MIND ANYONE THAT SAYS IT'S A PIECE OF CRAP IT'S NOT IT'S GORY AS WELL BECAUSE A WOMAN GETS A DRILL STUCK IN HER HEAD AND A MAN GET'S HIS HEAD PULLED OFF. I THINK THAT JOHN MAKING A DIFFERNT HALLOWEEN EVERY FEW YEARS WOULD OF BEEN COOL.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not THAT bad. July 9 2004
By Danny
Format:DVD
My first exposure to the Halloween movies was when I was a pre-teen. I loved the first one and really liked the rest of the sequels, which I watched non-sequentially. Halloween 3 was the last entry on the roster (mainly because it was so hard to find back then). My cousin finally got a hold of it, we both watched it and never spoke of it again. A Halloween movie without Michael Myers? Humbug! Blasphemy! How dare they! What a garbage movie!
Well, I'm 22 now and decided to buy Universal's re-issue on DVD. Not because I had any fond memories of the film; I'm simply a completist and it drove me BONKERS whenever I saw that one inch gap between my Halloween 2 and 4 DVD's. So, I reluctantly opened up the packaging, put the disc in the DVD player and just laid back with remote in hand. When it was all over, I realized the film is still no masterpiece.
However, it's been years since I've gotten over the fact that Michael isn't in it, so at least I was (ironically) able to watch it for the second time with a fresher perspective. And I have to say, it really isn't that bad. I actually like it better than Resurrection, but I guess that's not really saying much. The story drags sometimes, but the overall concept is interesting. Cochran, the villain, makes for a cool thorn in Tom Atkins' side. I also give the filmmakers kudos for allowing that annoying kid to just shut up and die a really horrible death.
Much has been said about the theme song. You know... "X more days till Halloween, Halloween, Halloween..." And it really does kind of grate on your nerves after you hear it for what seems like fifty times in ten minutes. But, I guess horror buffs can credit Halloween 3 for contributing at least ONE classic attribute to the genre, annoying or not.
If you're not a completist like me, I'd definitely suggest renting before buying. Just watch it with an open mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars People are really strange... June 27 2004
Format:DVD
I guess the Doors had it right...people are definetely strange. In its own accord and away from the "Halloween franchise" this is a great movie. I really do not understand some people: do they go into a theatre just to see what they expect? I do not understand why they hate this movie so much. It is a great movie, well written, well executed and with prety good special effects. It approaches the Halloween story from an entirely different angle and this is what I liked most about it. All the idiots screaming "No Mike Myers..." should remember he DIES in the the second installment of the series! Why do they prefer idiotic excuses resurecting a madman I will never know.
H3 is a great movie from the start (if you can get over the No MIke Myers excuse...). It makes you want to watch the rest of it just to find out what is going on and the poor guy in the beggining is as crazy as he is. Then why are these suited guys so strong really? The idea of the movie is totlaly freaky. Just watch it and decide for your selves w/o paying too much attention to the negative reviews out there. After all, these are the same people that liked "Friday the 13 part 104...Jason dies from OLD AGE"! Idiots that the only thing that excites them in a movie is seeing young people die when they are making up...
NO wonder "Reality TV" is so succesful these days!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's About time Sombody wrote a good review June 10 2004
By Michael
Format:DVD
As much as I love Michael Myers Maybe The only person Who really does I also love science fiction and the work of John Carpenter. If you took a slasher fan and showed him Carpenter's Escape From New York or Big Trouble In Little China They'd Hate it and they would They would call it Garbage But they Know nothing about Movies Period. H3 openedin October 1982 it was written and Directed By Tommy Lee Wallace the Production Designer and also edited the first film John and Debra Produced it and John did the score with Alan Howarth. The film failed, "Nobody Got It" John said "All the Slasher Fans got mad at me because they thought I destroyed Their Franchise they took it out of my hands and I was done with Hallloween". It failed Nobody likes the movie But I love it I know John loves It Tommy loves it as a "pod" movie in The invasion of the Body Snatchers tradition. I used to hate it too But that was before I got into That stuff. Horror and Sci-Fi movies are my life movies are my life period. This is a great Film and all the people that hate it they're not looking at it right and they don't get it. That's why they hate the other Halloween Films They're slasher fans Halloween were never salsher movies they did somthing nobody else could of done The only halloween film that people should be talking bad about is Resurrection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oddball movie that never should be called "Halloween 3".
After the modest success of "Halloween 2" in theaters. John Carpenter and Debra Hill thought, it was a good idea to make an Halloween movie every year by making different stories. Read more

Not the greatest horror film ever mind you, took 30 years to grow on me, but I like it now, it's good old fashion horror from the 80s.
