The night no one came home! Kids all over America want Silver Shamrock masks for Halloween. Meanwhile, an ER doctor uncovers a sinister plot by Silver Shamrock's owner... This third installment in John Carpenter's Halloween series bears no relation to the two previous films. Producers Carpenter and Debra Hill intended to turn the Halloween films into an anthology series of standalone movies, with the holiday itself being the only common theme. While the film turned a profit during its initial release, it didn't match the popularity of the Michael Myers saga, and to date is the only film in the franchise to depart from the original formula. In the years since its original theatrical run, Season of the Witch has gained major cult status, thanks to viewers willing to judge it on its own merits as a film with a truly terrifying premise, tour de force performances, and shocking special effects. It's almost time: put on your masks, and watch the Magic Pumpkin...
