30-Day Horror Movie Challenge: Day 29 – Least Favorite of All Time…

movie poster Halloween III 1982

Tagline: The night no one comes home.

Synopsis: “Kids all over America want Silver Shamrock masks for Halloween. Doctor Daniel Challis seeks to uncover a plot by Silver Shamrock owner Conal Cochran.” source

I have little to say about this flick because I loathe it entirely.

I was 11 when I watched it, and I remember being SOOOO freaking pissed off when it became obvious this had NOTHING to do with the Halloween movies with Michael Myers that I loved. My friend and I, plus her brother and mom (who picked it out at the video store; yes, I still remember it was you), were all camped out in the living room that Friday night, and, apparently, I was the only one seething with rage.

Anywho, only watched it the one time and have successfully shunned it for 30 years.

Now I see it’s listed on IMDb as SEASON OF THE WITCH instead of its original, very misleading title, HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH. Pffft. Little good that does us now — the poor sods, who, in our prime horror watching years, were duped into watching it.

No offense to anyone who likes HALLOWEEN III. 🎃

  1. I actually got introduced to the Halloween series with this one when I was a kiddo and it came on edited on TV one Halloween night. But yes, it is terrible! Great choice.

  2. I don’t particularly loathe this one, though I do remember being pissed about it not having anything to do with Michael Myers, or the story of the first two Halloween films. I just want to know why? lol

  3. This was one of the movies I remember my parent’s watching in the front room while I was (theoretically) in bed. Our house was small and I could hear that jingle being played over and over again. I remember thinking that I wasn’t sure how it was supposed to be scary… I like Halloween III because it’s just sort of weird in general, but I was well-aware that it had nothing to do with Michael Myers by the time I got to it. It was a terrible idea to put the Halloween franchise tag on it.
