This third film in the Halloween cycle -- which marked a unique and distinctive break from the original story line -- has been given a solid presentation for its release on DVD. Halloween III: Season of the Witch has been given a letterboxed transfer at its original widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1, which has been enhanced for anamorphic playback on 16 x 9 monitors. The audio, in English, is presented in its mono original mix, mastered in Dolby Digital Mono; the disc also features optional subtitles in French and Spanish, as well as closed captions in English. No bonus material has been added for this edition.
Originally, people were upset that this movie didn't have any connection with John Carpenter's original "Michael Myers" movies. The intention was to have a new original horror movie released every Halloween and have it titled "Halloween" but with a different sub-title for each film. The idea didn't catch on unfortunately but at least we still have this fun stand alone film that we can enjoy each Halloween season!
This is another of the "Halloween" series movies released by the 'Scream Factory' division of the Shout Factory distributors. The story in the movie itself is a pretty "love it or hate it" situation; they tried to turn the "Halloween" title into an anthology type series with an unrelated plot but at the time it failed, pushing them to go back to the original Michael Myers ideas.
The presentation on this BluRay is excellent. Great sound and picture quality, the best I've ever come across. Loaded with documentaries and special features, another one where I'm still trying to watch them all. If you were a fan of this film, get this set.
This is a very fun, and very original sequel in the Halloween series. Although I like Michael Myers, I feel after the way 2 ended that this was a great way to take the spookiest time of the year into a new territory. Would have made a cool turn for the series to go in a sort of anthology route but of course the fans demanded Michael so they brought him back. He survived a mass explosion and having his eyes shot out. Beats me lol but I really enjoyed this installment! Recommended!
There are several versions of this available, but this is the one to get if you don't want a bare-bones release. This is packed with lots of special features giving you much more enjoyment time than just the film.
