Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

October Challenge Day 24:

My brother has been asking to watch Halloween III: Season of the Witch with me since September. Finally got to it on Monday!

He had seen it already but really wanted to share this viewing experience as an October Challenge post. Done and done, bro.

It's a silly film. Silly in all the right ways, though.

I think I can sum up the silly by stating: this is the only Halloween film in the franchise that doesn't have Michael Myers in it. It has absolutely nothing to do with any of the other films. So why is it called Halloween III? I have no idea aside from the fact that the focus is on the Halloween holiday.

Here we have a menacing company hell-bent on destroying youth because no one cares about the True Meaning of Halloween anymore. It's a war on Halloween, y'all, and pumpkins everywhere are spittin' mad. These statements may or may not have spoilers in them...

With some classic 1980's horror camp, awkward romance scenes, a Very Angry Mother, a factory town that gives new meaning to factory towns, and a weird and twisted turn of events in a plot that still leaves me wondering how it could have been conceived, this is a movie to behold with a six-pack of beer and a bag full of candy.

Watch with company, and put on that suffocating rubber or flimsy plastic (disturbing) mask you wore on Halloween as a youth. *Be sure you're wearing that mask at the very end of the film. It will be fun, I promise*. 

Pairs with canned beers, candy, candy, candy, and an Irish dish.

My brother rented this movie from his local video store (Scarecrow Video). But he rented a Blu-ray disk, and we don't have a Blue-ray player so I had to rent it from Amazon Prime. Thanks, bro. Use the links under Find It. Watch It. on Horror Habit's sidebar to see where else you can find this odd, silly, original feature.
