Horror 101 – Episode 69: Halloween III – Season of the Witch

Horror 101 Episode 69: Halloween III – Season of the Witch – Oct. 29th, 2017

The Night Nobody Comes Home!

its our favourite time of year once again! We’ve reached that nasty 69 number! We have had more requests to cover Tommy Lee Wallace’s Halloween 3 than any other film since we began Horror 101 so there was absolutely no doubt in our minds that we wouldn’t be covering Season of the Witch for this part of our threequel year. We’ll discuss how it affected the Halloween series and why the producers took a chance on moving in another direction. Where was Michael Myers? Could Halloween III have been the start to a whole line of Halloween themed horror movies? With excellent music by John Carpenter and Alan Howarth no other podcast makes it sound like you’re watching the movie with us like this show. Its the Horror 101 Halloween Special! We hope you enjoy it!
