It's that time again. The halfway point to the most wonderful time of the year. Michael Myers returns! And then he doesn't. We'll explain. Gather round, children. Put on your Silver Shamrock masks and listen.
The first Halloween (1978) was such a huge success, that it spawned seemingly countless imitations. Can the first sequel match the power of the original? Or is it standard slasher fare, with more death due to an expanded cast, who become fodder for Michael? Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasence are together again in Halloween II (1981)!
And then what is this? Michael Myers does not appear in the next movie in the series? Afraid not. In a total departure, a small town novelty company seems to have rather nefarious Halloween plans. What do Stonehenge, robots, jack-o'-lanterns, skeletons, witches, Tom Atkins, and television commercials have in common? Well, this movie. That's pretty much it. Happy, happy Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982), from Silver Shamrock!
