for a moment from Sandy to Samhain: don't know about you, but my
favorite Halloween film - from the same-named franchise, at least -
remains 1982's Halloween III: Season of the Witch. An occultist toy
manufacturer, pissed off at the secularization of the holiday, imports
inherently demonic slivers of Stonehenge, imbeds them into microchips
which are sewn into jack-o'-lantern masks and triggered by calliope
music (and wildly oscillating, mimetic 8-bit graphics) to crush the
skulls of children and turn their bodies into seething clumps of
crickets and garden snakes. A great bloody HUH? of a movie.
So, put on
your Silver Shamrock masks, kids, and good luck!
