The actual movie is filled with amusingly strange ideas, some supremely dark, horrific material, and some flat-out kooky stuff.

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.

It is high time for viewers with a hang-up to reevaluate the pleasures that Halloween III: Season of the Witch has to offer.

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.

Mr. Wallace clearly has a fondness for the cliches he is parodying and he does it with style.

Very peculiar variant on Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Connected to the Halloween series in name only.

It's no wonder they gave up after this, and brought back Michael Myers.

Halloween III, while not a complete success, at least offers something different from the norm.

July 27, 2008
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
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Has little connection with first two "Halloweens," including true terror.

Though the film certainly isn't awful, the filmmakers couldn't decide on their focus.

This is one of those Identikit movies, assembled out of familiar parts from other, better movies.

Were it not for the middle 30 minutes, which take approximately 73,000 hours to watch, forgetting it would be easy.

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.
| Original Score: 1/5
Scott Weinberg

Points for trying something new, but the results are more laughable than terrifying.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
