After two outings for Michael Myers the Halloween movies took a slightly different turn in 1982. With the thought of making the Franchise into a Anthology Series instead of bringing back Michael Myers, Season of the Witch brought in a completely new story, new themes and even a new genre departing from Slasher Movies and moving onto Witchcraft (not that you wouldn’t have noticed with the name.)
It was the first movie not to star Michael Myers or Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie let alone Daniel Pleasence as Dr. Loomis.
The film flopped, people didn’t like it and when Halloween finally reared its head again Michael Myers was back in the lead role. For me though I’m not so negative about Halloween 3.
