Review: Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

How in the world can they step outside of the franchise and make such an incredible outsider of a movie, without Michael Myers? It’s not even a slasher!

When a terrified toy-salesman gets viciously murdered at a hospital, his daughter and one of the doctors find themself in the small town of Shamrock. Something is strange at the big Silver Shamrock Novelty factory. Can they stop the madness brewing before Halloween is turned in to a mass murder?

Finally seen this misfit from the Halloween-series. And where were Michael Myers? It has a different tempo and atmosphere than the rest of the movies, and fits the ultra rare chategory of “sci-fi’ish horror”. This stands perfectly alone, and is a great horror flick. It’s like a combination of “Willy Wonka” and “Driller Killer”. Amazing story! Great entertainment, and a┬ámust-watch!
