Default Halloween III: Season of the Witch

HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH


How else should the Irish celebrate Halloween, but by watching the film that captures our hatred for children. Iím mean, Iím not saying Conal Cochranís plan was the most ethical, but I think he may have a point. Letís consider:

1. Cochran claims he is doing this as a sacrifice to the Pagan Gods of old.

2. Cochran brings up references to magic and other supernatural powers, which implies that the Pagan Gods could destroy us if not satisfied.

3. That Cochran was able to create masks that implode the wearerís head, and have snakes and insects emerge, proves that these supernatural powers exist.

4. Therefore, Cochran is right.

5. Also, children are very annoying, and the planetís overpopulated, so itís not the worst of ideas.

Indeed, the real villain is Dr. Dan Challis. Not only content with drinking on the job, or while driving, he sexually harasses his nurses, and blows off his children so he can sleep with the daughter of a patient that just died. Now, I know this makes him look f*cking awesome, but he is about to doom humanity forever by the end of the film.

Anyhoo, Halloween III is hackneyed writing and mediocre direction that is lifted high by the incredibly game cast, the beautiful cinematography, superb editing, and a cracking score. Highly recommended!

Do it while you can.

When you reach 50 a 2.5 hour film is a challenge.....

Brilliant.
You forgot the stereotypical Irish accent and clothing....

Yep Halloween 3 IS class.

Default November 1st / 2nd - The Day of the Dead

Candyman 3: Day of the Dead (1999)

A direct to dvd sequel to Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh (1995) and set 25 years on where Donna D'Errico (The daughter from the second film) summons the Candyman (A returning Tony Todd) who begins a hook slashing killing spree in Los Angeles during their Day of the Dead celebrations. Meanwhile a local cop (Wade Williams) tries to pin the murders on D'Errico.

Most people don't seem to like this third entry in the series whereas i really don't mind it. D'Errico is okay, not brilliant, just okay whilst Todd is his usual silky voiced self. The gore is certainly upped here with some juicy bloodletting throughout and more back story on Todd's Daniel Robitaille.

Candyman 3: Day of the Dead isn't essential Candyman viewing by any means but i always enjoy it and the new Vestron Blu-ray looks pretty decent for a direct to dvd film.

Watchimg this last night as November 1st turned into November 2nd it struck me that despite taking place in the build up to All Souls Day and the Mexican Day of the Dead there's not a Halloween pumpkin or decoration in sight, not one, clearly a f*ck up in production.

And so ends my October Horror Marathon...

Yet again they've been a joy to read, and going off the number of 'likes' every single review has achieved i'm not the only one who thought that.


I really enjoyed it this year, loads of variety from everyone but also some fan favourites that a few of us managed to watch around the same time as each other for no reason other than coincidence!

I ended up with a tally of 53 year! Up from 44 last year. I donít even want to count MrBís lol
