I've always liked Halloween III. Sure, it's a failed experiment but the idea behind it was sound. Michael Myers was "killed" at the end of Halloween II so Carpenter and company decided to try turning the "Halloween" franchise into an annual "Twilight Zone" style anthology series of stand alone fims.

...of course, the movie tanked (and besides, I'm sure the producers paid attention to how much $$ the Friday the 13th crew were raking in by re-animating THEIR guy in movie after movie) so eventually it was inevitable that Michael would return.

"Halloween III's" plot is ludicrous and full of holes but it's a nice little sci-fi/horror blend (and I love that synthesizer soundtrack by Carpenter and Alan Howarth ... soooo '80s but sooooo awesome!)

... Dan O'Herlihy is a hoot as Conal Cochran (though as I understand it, he didn't think much of the movie) and Tom Atkins is always fun to watch.

If this had been released without the "Halloween" tag in '82 I seriously think it would be more fondly remembered today.

I think the movie should be released on DVD under the subtitle "Season of The Witch." That way it could stand on it's own away from the Halloween franchise. On it's own it's not that bad a movie. They should also put out a box set of all the original Halloween movies excluding Part III. They could call it the Micheal Myers Collection. This would clear up years of confusion.

I think there's a horribly missed opportunity here.  At some point they should have made a movie where Myers is running around killing people at the same time that somebody is trying to rig people's Halloween masks to kill them. 

It's not like the Halloween series hasn't had worse sequel ideas.

I like Season of the Witch. Sure it has nothing to do with the previous two Halloween movies, but as a stand alone movie it's great. Very underrated.
