Often considered the worst Halloween sequel ever made, Halloween 3 is NOT popular among most horror fans because the star, Michael Myers, is completely absent. But I can still give you three solid reasons for why it's totally worth watching!
WARNING: This article has a ton of spoilers!
1. It's Awesomely Dark
The Halloween franchise is known for being notoriously dark. But this particular sequel is one of the darkest hands down. The story is about an old, evil, businessman trying to kill off every child by way of his rigged Halloween mask. And does he succeed? YES! Some might argue that the ending was left off ambiguously, but it's painfully obvious the poor doctor couldn't stop that last commercial from playing all the way through.
2. The Movie Is SCARY
Yes I said it! This sequel is actually a very scary movie. From creepy, silent men in business suits, to secret societies, all the way over to a killer mask and billions of potentially murdered children. This sequel is just a viciously twisted, gross, dark, and scary film. Everything I'd expect in a slasher flick!
3. The Villain Takes The Win In This One!
I mentioned this once before, and I'll mention it again. There is no happy ending in this movie. The mastermind behind the Halloween mask still wins the battle at the end of the day. And besides sacrificing every child on earth, he manages to turn the films leading lady into a heartless cyborg by the end of the film. A scene that still leaves a bad taste in my mouth, personally...
I just gave you three legitimate reasons for why you HAVE to add the original Halloween 3 to your watch list this month. It's definitely one of the best obscure slasher flicks to come out of the 1980's.
