… or does it? Dun dun dun!
They finally nailed the theme of “Halloween 3: Season of the Witch!” After all, Michael Myers is ultimately “the shape.” Evil incarnate. What happens when that evil spreads beyond its original vessel? One of the essential overarching questions of the franchise, especially with this newest trilogy.
Carrying on the themes of the first two installments, this film dives into the psychological aspect behind the classic slasher much more than one would expect. Man in a mask stabs people – the end. Not for this film. We examine emotions spanning the entire spectrum of possibilities, from grief to violent eroticism, and everything in between.
That being said, we still get some of the best kills in the series by the time the credits roll to “Don’t Fear The Reaper.” Hilarious and surprising cameos by the original “Shape” Nick Castle and infamous Darcy the Mail Girl from Shudder’s “The Last Drive In” Diana Prince. Taking the trilogy in totality – a well done reboot and re-invigoration of the franchise!
