Underrated. Tense. Mindless.

No, Michael Myers is not in this movie. Somebody decided to call this horror flick Halloween III despite having nothing to do with the previous two installments, and, regardless of what their plan was, they did Season of the Witch a major disservice. It’s no masterpiece but it’s also not the waste of time that so many disgruntled fans say it is on IMDB. It follows Dr. Daniel Challis (Atkins) and Ellie Grimbridge (Nelkin) working to uncover a diabolical conspiracy in the small town of Santa Mira. Local toy company, Silver Shamrock, is making Halloween masks that destroy the wearer. There’s more to it than that but it still won’t make much sense. I admitted it’s not a masterpiece. It is, however, creepy and effective, a tense hour-and-a-half experience; something like an adult Goosebumps.

  1. I watched this for the third time this week; everything you say is right, it’s no masterpiece, and has some logic jumps that do not compute. But it is a fun idea, and plays, as you say, like an adult Goosebumps! Good review!
