I still think the same. It's not very good, but still my second favorite Halloween film to the first. I'm honestly just not too big on slashers like the Halloween or Friday The 13th series..
Child's Play/Chucky or Nightmare on Elm Street however? I do like those franchises.

I've only seen Halloween 3 once so I'll watch it again sometime this month. Thanks Earl :eyeroll:

Awesome!  Watch it again!!

I would recommend that you find the latest release of "Halloween III."  Lot's of extras!  Interviews and documentary.

It's the most underrated horror film on the planet.

Although far fetched it will always be my second favorite film period.

Like, how did they really steal a stone from Stonehenge?

"The Thing" (sorry) that really bothers me about "Halloween III" is the time zone change issue.

So.....


The movie takes place in California.  The Big Giveaway is at 9:00 pm.  That mean it would go on at midnight on the East Coast?  Most kids would be asleep by then and miss the show.

Does no compute.

Damn, I love Halloween III .. It's like The Elder - this unappreciated, one of a kind misfire bastard child that compares to nothing ..

I mean, name one other film that is similar ??

ONE OF A KIND


LIKE THE BLADE OF SWORD I AM FORGED IN FLAMES

FIERY HOT


f**k it, I think I'll wear a pink headband when I watch the Halloween III special edition whenever it arrives from Amazon

It gets a bad rap, but it's better than any of the sequels that came after it.

I really love Halloween H20...granted...it was the first one I saw and I was like ten years old...it still freaks me out!

The original? Not so much...


What?

"The original? Not so much?"

Please explain.....

I watched it as a kid and it never scared me.

Honestly all these horror fans tell me these seventies films are terrifying and dark and scary...ten year old me stayed up late to listen to annoying synths and get bored rotten.

Seriously...none of his films scare me at all. I find more horror in The Deer Hunter to be honest. And that is really damaging.

Now...Dario Argento's Suspiria and a few Japanese horrors on the other hand...

But don't get me wrong I enjoy John Carpenters movies. They don't scare me at all but I like his style. Halloween III is one of the weirdest movies I have ever seen and I loved it.

But yeah...I didn't even find the exorcist or the shining scary.

And after events in my late teens where I was faced with death quite regularly and was beaten to a pulp on several occasions and sent to hospital...I am afraid it all seems quite silly compared to real life. Victims don't really get a chance to scream like that.

But I tend to shy away from horror anyway as it can trigger panic attacks because of what I went through.

Back on topic...West Craven I love.

Wow!  You are a rare breed man.

I just watched "The Mind's Eye" on blu-ray last night.  It's like "Scanners" with a John Carpenter soundtrack.  The composer is Steve Moore from the two piece band ZOMBI.

It's all of that synth stuff like the Carpenter soundtracks.  You might hate it Myles, but I LOVE IT!!!!!

"The Deer Hunter" is a high stress war movie of terror.

Wes Craven rules.  RIP

You should check out "Hellraiser."  Clive Barker is fantastic.

Also go explore all the early David Cronenberg films.

Funny thing is he acts in "Night Breed."  Another campy classic.

"The Shining" rules man.

Do you like "A Clockwork Orange?"

A masterpiece.

Halloween did and still does terrify me. I still have Michael Meyers nightmares...thanks a lot to my older sister for letting/making me watch it alone when I was 10. *shivers *

Halloween 3 on the other hand...f***ing rawks!! Weird. Bizarre. Terrible acting. Terrible writing. Terrible effects. Unintentionally hilarious. Love this movie with 80's porn stash guy hamming it up as the doctor turned detective banging the coked up community theater wannabe actress with big hair. Awesome. Add in some veteran Shakespearean thespian that got suckered / in debt enough to be in this glimmering turd...add a dash of Stonehenge and head crushing androids and you have a CLASSIC "wtf was this about?" piece of cinema where everyone involved in the production was cranked out of their minds. Love it.

Just when you think that Halloween III is this great little piece of entertaining kitsch, it throws some nasty curveball at you like . . .

Well, if you've seen it, you know the one really creepy scene, or the one with
Spoiler

HAHAHAHAHA!!  I love your post!!!!  Nancy Loomis is the bitch ex wife in Halloween III.  Also in "13" and of course in "Halloween" and "The Fog."

Halloween III was directed by Tommy Lee Wallace but the entire "Halloween" and "Halloween II" were in charge of production, wardrobe and casting.  

John's woman Debra Hill was also a big part of "Halloween III."

Tom Atkins is also in "The Fog."

I think the casting is AMAZING!

I love when Billy gets zapped in the head.

It's such a great movie.  It's a 9/10.  It would be a 10 but I hate the time zone issue.

Acting is priceless.

Come on!!  Conal Cochran RULES!!!!

Dan O'Herlihy is a wonderful actor!!!!

I have both albums. I think the Ozzy version is better though, it just seems to suit his vocal style better than Lemmy's.
