As far as John Carpenter Michael Myers is dead so he did this movie without him then someone came along who missed Michael bought the rights to the characters from the first 2 movies and carrieed on with Halloween 4.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE! I must be the only one. Use to see this on cable back when basic was cool and filled with b grade horror. The original idea was to make a different movie with a different plot for Halloween each year. Wish they had gone along with that plane. I do have a place for the rest of the sequals(5,6, 7, 8, 9) but I love this. Tom Atkis is one of my favorite actors. Love that song. Just don't get how everyone else hate this so much. This looks so much like a Carpenter film I was suprise to learn that he didn't do it his self. He's signiture is all over it though. Did I mention I LOVE THIS!

One of the weaknesses of Halloween III is the strength of halloween II.  Halloween II was a perfect sequel in that the story line and general mayham starts exactly where Halloween leaves off.  Any expectation that Halloween III would be a sequel of that caliber was quickly squalched. 
Overall a marginally ok movie that suffers from having the wrong title (would any of this be an issue if the movie was titled "Masks with chuncks of stonehenge in them are going to kill all the kids on Halloween night") and of course the obvious lack of plot, story line, character developement, coherence, etc.  I hate the non-committed ending (did all the kids die or not?) and that flashing pumpkin definitely lead to some epilepsy based lawsuits.

The only difference between zombies and toddlers is one is cuter than the other.

It should have just been called "Season Of The Witch", that's a bad-ass title.

Easily one of the worst films ever made. It's so mean-spirited I actually felt uncomfortable watching it at times. It's boring as hell, too.

I rented this for a Halloween party several years back and it actually killed the party dead. Complete s**t, from top to bottom.

 Call me simple but even as a young bad movie fan I still wasn't able to process the concept of the latest instalment of a slasher franchise having ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with ANY of the previous films! :(
 Just mind boggling.....

I've always avoided this one because Michael Myers wasn't in it. However, early last month I decided to watch it on Cinemax & give it a chance since I'm a big fan of Carpenter's original & the sequel.

Its not a great movie but it was original, interesting & mean-spirited & I liked it enough to add it to my movie collection.
Plus having Tom Atkins as the lead is always a good sign. I loved the way it ended (having that classic Carpenter feel/fade to black). Great music score by Carpenter as well.

I actually enjoyed Halloween III. Yeah there is no mikey, but its still got an exciting storyline. I thought it was real brave of them to try something new and it didn't work, so they moved on. I think if it wasn't called Halloween III:Season Of The Witch, I believe people would have enjoyed the film more instead of wondering if they checked out the wrong movie by mistake.

This was the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. 

I am new to the Halloween movies, and decided to watch them all in one weekend.  I had a very hard time sitting through this.  But, it's worth seeing once - and once only - as part of learning about the series.

I like this movie for nostalgic reasons, but I love almost everything from the 80's.

The only thing that p**ses me off is that you never really know what the villain wants to do. Yeah he wants to sell his masks and kill everyone that wears them, but why?

An unfairly underrated horror flick. I'd rather watch this than any of the later sequels.

According to legend *cough cinemassacre cough*, the guy wanted to bring back the horrors that Halloween was originally told as.

yeah no.

This is one of my all time favorite films. Really. Partially because Michael Myers wasn't in the film. I never liked Halloween. Yeah, chew me a new one. I liked this film for numerous reasons. Great villainous performance from Dan O'Herlihy. Great storyline about masks that kill children and the insects that murder their parents. A woman is turned into a robot. Pagan's steal a rock from Stonehedge. I mean, what's not to like?
