Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Inventive, underrated in-name-only Carpenter-produced sequel throws together chip-controlled Halloween masks, expressionless killer robots in suits, a sleepy Irish town and an alcoholic doctor in search of an answer. So, no Michael Myers and it isn't particularly gory (that skull crushing scene though), but atmospheric, fantastically offbeat marriage of sci-fi and horror elements, deftly handled by longtime Carpenter collaborator Tommy Lee Wallace.

There’s not much to say that hasn’t already been said about either of the other two Halloween pics or a slew of imitators.

Means to be funny and frequently is. Mr. Wallace clearly has a fondness for the cliches he is parodying and he does it with style.

This is one of those Identikit movies, assembled out of familiar parts from other, better movies.
