Shout! Factory present 'Halloween III: Season of the Witch' uncut and in its correct aspect ratio on this Region A locked disc. I never saw the DVD Universal released Stateside, but given the praise that disc has received over the years, I wouldn't be surprised if this hi-def transfer was struck from the same source.

With a thin-but-clear sheen of grain covering the image, 'Halloween III' is rewarded with an increase in detail and clarity. As ever, close-ups provide the best cases for oohs and aahs, but what struck me especially were the little patterns and textures now clearly visible on clothing and other materials (most notably when "Little Buddy" tries to rip through the degenerating pumpkin mask in his death throes).

Digital noise reduction may have been applied, as there is a surprisingly slight amount of grain in evidence, but there's no obvious detrimental knock-on effect, and that filmic quality is very much in evidence with little in the way of print damage.

Likewise, edge enhancement is never a problem, and black levels are rock solid. In fact, Dean Cundy's darkly envisioned cinematography is given perhaps the most substantial upgrade, with strong colours that pop right off the screen and shadows which only ever swallow details they were always intended to.

The disc is supplied with a basic DTS HD Mono audio track that won't exactly blow away seasoned audiophiles, but still does an efficient job of reproducing the film's original sound design. A front-heavy affair, dialogue and music are well balanced, with John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's jump scare music cues receiving a notable boost. Of course, the Silver Shamrock jingle has never sounded better either (ohhono).

REVIEWED VERSION: 2000 MIA UK DVD

Director: Tommy Lee Wallace

Cast: Tom Atkins, Dan O'Herlihy, Stacey Nelkin

SYNOPSIS

Cochran, the CEO of Silver Shamrock, a company manufacturing Halloween masks, has a diabolical plan to kill millions of American children on Halloween. Something is hidden in the masks and will be triggered by a TV commercial...

THE PROS & CONS

HALLOWEEN III - SEASON OF THE WITCH could have been a lot more than it turned out to be. The absence of Michael Myers is not a bad thing at all. Personally, I believe this character is seriously over-hyped. He was a good character for HALLOWEEN 1 and 2, but that's all. The makers wanted to go a different way with HALLOWEEN III, a way without Myers, and they were on the right track.
The story - written by director Tommy Lee Wallace - itself is not bad but badly executed. It would have needed a little more "fleshing out" to distract from the fact that it is totally illogical. It could have worked!
They assembled some really great actors, who do their best, namely Tom Atkins and Dan O'Herlihy, still this movie fails:
- the Halloween song REALLY gets on one's nerves. It's funny hearing it once, it's funny hearing it twice... but after you hear it 6 or 7 times it REALLY becomes a nuisance.
- logic usually cannot be applied to horror movies - and certainly not to the HALLOWEEN movies, but this one really is the worst: snakes and bugs coming out of Halloween masks? Where were they hidden???
- Dan O'Herlihy's character lacks a motive for his actions. Besides if he is so famous and his company is all over the news, how does he expect to get away with the crime?
HALLOWEEN III had potential.

Am not going to bore you and go on about how this film should never have been called Halloween 3, well the only thing am going to say is, it should of been called The night of the Mask or its underline title, The season of the Witch so I am going to review this film as a separate entity from the Halloween series.

The film is great with a brilliant performance by Tom Atkins(the fog) the story is about a mask maker who has lost the plot and wants to commit mass murder by using Halloween masks, that have a power to make snakes and all sorts of poisonous creatures. I loved the beginning with the opening title with a, graphic pumpkin, plus the soundtrack was so creepy, this is a great film if you can get past the fact that Michael Myers is not in this, well he does appear for a breath second.

I never grow tired of this film and I'd go as far as to say, it's the best one of all the Hallowe'en series of films as the story is completely different from the others. My only warning is, be very selective of which version you buy as this one is the only one that hasn't been edited. Even the Hallowe'en box set version has been cut and it really has ruined it completely. I don't understand why they have edited versions on DVD. It's very unfair.

I like this film a lot. For me, it is the second best of the Halloween series (the original Carpenter version being the best, of course). Because it doesn't feature the zombie Michael Myers of the second and later films, it has by far the lowest rating on IMDb. Instead it has something sadly lacking from all the other sequels: intelligence, thanks to the script originating with Nigel Kneale. He took his name off the credits partly because of the splatter, and we'll come back to that later.

Other plus points include one of Carpenter's best soundtracks done with Alan Howarth, some lovely cinematography from Dean Cundey, and a fine performance from Dan O'Herlihy. Sadly, it also has Tom Atkins trying to be a leading man and a leading lady who is more convincing in her final scenes than in any of her other attempts at acting. OK, I can live with those, because it is smarter than the vast majority of horror films.

But which one to get? There are four options:

R2 Sanctuary release: cover has no face on it, with the tagline 'The night nobody came home...' and the word 'Widescreen' at the bottom. This has an OK 16:9 picture and a good 5.1 soundtrack, plus a commentary by Newman and Jones who had no connection to it, but like horror films. There is however a fundamental problem with it. There is no way that those two do not know that they're watching a censored version, but when they talk about the censorship of the initial video releases, they talk about a sequence - the decapitation and subsequent blood spray of someone - that is in this. The impression they want to leave is clear: this one is uncensored. It's not. Incredibly, the box claims a running time of 96 minutes, but it's actually about 92.
