Film Reviews: “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” (1982)


I watch “Halloween 3” every October! It’s tradition. “H3” symbolizes the holiday more for me than any other film, including the original “Halloween.” I know there’s a lot of hate for this film because the series’ main villain Michael Myers isn’t in it, and it strays away from the main storyline completely. The intention was to make the franchise a different tale with every sequel, but fans didn’t like that, and thus Michael Myers was brought back for “Halloween 4” and every film since. “H3” has some seriously creepy-intense moments, and is underlined by a great John Carpenter score. I can’t stress enough about how great the music is. It’s one of my favorite things about “H3”, and I think, one of the most effective scores to any horror film. The plot: A man enters a hospital, frantic and clutching a Halloween mask. He says “they’re going to kill us all!” Later that night he is murdered by a creepy man in a suit. Our main character, Dan, is a doctor at the hospital and witness to all of this. He begins an investigation with the victim’s daughter Ellie. The duo travel to the small town where the masks are manufactured. From there it gets weird! I don’t want to spoil it for those of you who haven’t seen it. All I can say is watch it!

4.0 out of 4.0 stars.
