Halloween III: Season of the Witch recapped and reviewed on the Monster Movie Podcast by host Doc Rotten and special guest host Ormon Grimsby.
The Monster Movie Podcast begins its year long look at horror films and monster movies from the 1980’s with one of the most controversial films of that decade, Halloween III Season of the Witch. This is the third film in a franchise about Michael Myers without actually including the unstoppable killer or anything from the previous two pictures. John Carpenter, Debra Hill and director Tommy Lee Wallace have the hearts in the right place, transform the franchise into an annual film centered around and featuring the Halloween holiday but audiences were not ready for such a deviation from the first two films. The box office bomb is now a cult classic loved by many including Ormon Grimbsy who tried to convince Doc of the film’s awesome content.
