    If any film could be called a double-edged sword, it’s Halloween III for the reasons you outlined (we may have never heard of Danielle Harris without it being a big one). The film has grown on me over the years. I just hope Rob Zombie doesn’t try to remake this one.

      Danielle Harris is awesome so I am glad that at least Halloween kept going, which made her career.

      Zombie is done with the Halloween remakes and is going back to his own stuff, which I think is much better than his remakes. However, now the studio is continuing with the MM story arc from the Zombie films (with a new directory) and most likely will make Halloween 3D.

    This was an awesome film and I loved the idea of the bad guy winning for a change. So used to happy endings, I so did not see that coming.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      Even though it is a little more common today, it is a nice change when you see the bad guy totally outsmart the hero.

  • “And for a time it seemed like Michael Myers would have ended with his death in ‘Halloween II’…”

    sigh… I would like to theorize that there is another world in which that happened, and it was fine…

      Its a rough trade. We could have had a bunch of awesome original Halloween themed horror films for years to come.

  • The Horror Guru

    I fucking love Season of the Witch. People who hate it because there’s no Myers confuse me, especially since it’s an all around better movie than a majority of the Halloween films after it. =P

      People want familiarity in a franchise. Even though it has been said countless times, if this was just called Season of the Witch it would be beloved by the community. Instead being tied to the Halloween name, it is despised by people who probably never even watched it.

  • Mark Foote

    The scene where the child dies followed by snakes an insects crawling their way out of his mask to kill the rest of his family still haunts me to this day. It is sad we didn’t get to see Halloween as an anthology series but lucky for us it seems that Trick R’ Treat might be the franchise to carry that torch.

    • Cristiona

      Pity Trick R Treat got dumed by its distributor and all but ignored.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      That scene is still brutal and they would never do it today

    This movie came out the same weekend I was born. Not sure if that means anything.
    Here’s a couple of strange ironies I found out after watching this. While this was consider the lowest grossing film in the Halloween franchise for a look time, when adjusted for inflation it actually had better ticket sales than Halloween 4 or 5. Not only that, while Halloween 4 did make number at the box office opening weekend it was knocked out of the top spot two weeks later by They Live; a science fiction triller directed by John Carpenter which ALSO involved subliminal messages.

      I think Halloween 4 suffered a similar fate to Batman Begins. Even though the marketing went out of their way to show The Shape was back, folks were still sour over H3. (with Batman Begins people still thought it was a follow up to Batman and Robin and not a reboot)
