Halloween III: Season Of The Witch (1982)
The night no one came home!
This has a catchy yet creepy Silver Shamrock jungle, a creepy Halloween mask company and an evil plot to kill kids in really horrible ways to bring back the true meaning of Samhain. This has a horrifically dark ending and was okay. The original ‘Halloween’ movie is to play on TV and is described as an immortal classic. This flopped but is now a cult classic.

This has illogic; somehow the Silver Shamrock Novelties Company is a huge company despite making only three masks. Their creepy jingle sung to the tune of ‘London Bridge’ The Silver Shamrock Company wants all kids to watch the horrorthon for the giveaway at 9pm. While wearing their masks! Nothing suspicious about that. This has 80s opening credits and electro-synth music. The baddie kills more people in one night than anyone else ever. America seems to have only 3 channels at this point in time. Somebody stole a stone from Stonehenge which plays a major part in the part. The ‘hero’ ignores his wife and children, he is a doctor who drinks and shags random women while ignoring his family some more.

This has nice creepy music. The ‘hero’ runs around with Ellie and they visit the Silver Shamrock factory in Santa Mira. A town in the middle of nowhere that has a 6pm curfew. People have bizarre Orish accents. This was not highly rarefied but has oddness as people sick of the misappropriation of Samhain do vomit inducing things. There are robots and unsatisfactory acting. There is death by conspicuous avarice and the poon hound ‘hero’ in unaffected by doubt and unrest. This was underpowered and the ending is all grim inevitability.

Best Lines:
“Eight more days to Halloween, Halloween, Halloween!”

“They’re coming.”

“They’re going to kill us. All of us.”

“I should have married you.”

“Some crazy man.”

“Don’t you have any Halloween spirit?”

“Irish Halloween masks?”

“Don’t you dare go in the street!”

“Damn factory!”
