Halloween III - Season of the Witch
Halloween 3, a dismal, unappealing slasher film, has nothing in common with the original Halloween other than its title. Here, a deranged mask manufacturer (Dan O'Herlihy) makes and sells millions of Halloween masks that will kill any child who wears them. When his scheme is found out, he goes on a bloody rampage in order to escape detection. This film, badly directed by Tommy Lee Wallace and with terrible performances by all the cast, is a silly, rip-off of a successful series. Fans expecting to see Michael Meyers or Donald Pleasance reprising their familiar roles had better skip this… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The end result is a bit of a mess but hugely enjoyable, and often (thanks to Dean Cundey's camerawork and John Carpenter's close supervision as producer) as striking visually as its predecessors."
‑ , Time Out
"It's no wonder they gave up after this, and brought back Michael Myers."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It is high time for viewers with a hang-up to reevaluate the pleasures that Halloween III: Season of the Witch has to offer."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"Though the film certainly isn't awful, the filmmakers couldn't decide on their focus."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Oh boy, this is a howler, justly ranked as one of the worst films in history and shocking in that it didn't kill Carpenter's career outright."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"This is one of those Identikit movies, assembled out of familiar parts from other, better movies."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Halloween III, while not a complete success, at least offers something different from the norm."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"There are more than enough giant logic holes, stilted characters and idiotic developments to make sure that it is bad for reasons transcending its simple poorness as a sequel"
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Something stinks!"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Very peculiar variant on Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Connected to the Halloween series in name only."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Mr. Wallace clearly has a fondness for the cliches he is parodying and he does it with style."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Halloween III: Season of the Witch might have been hated back in the day, but it simply doesn't deserve the anger and animosity nowadays."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Has little connection with first two "Halloweens," including true terror."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"Were it not for the middle 30 minutes, which take approximately 73,000 hours to watch, forgetting it would be easy."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"Points for trying something new, but the results are more laughable than terrifying."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
