Halloween III (1982) Review:

John Carpenter initial plan for the Halloween series was to make a new Halloween-themed movie each year. Having killed Mickael Myers in the second Halloween, filmmakers decided to follow Carpenter’s initial idea and based this third movie on a completely different story. The concept of the mask was to be at the center of all the franchise movies. The problem is that Season of the Witch completely failed at the box office, forcing the filmmakers to bring back Myers for all the following sequels.

Nevertheless, this third opus of the Halloween franchise is an interesting one. Season of the Witch has got a good story, at least good enough to make a very decent movie around it. The idea behind this movie – mask killing people – is simple but good. The plot is well written and interesting twists add to the overall experience. The movie is, however, a bit slow and can get boring at times, explaining the average rating. A great one time watch nevertheless!
