I saw Carpenter & Co. perform live on both of the tours that he has done so far, and my biggest (and only) disappointment was that they didn't lead the audience in a sing-a-long of the Silver Shamrock jingle. That would have made my life complete.NOT ME! 32 days til Halloween, Halloween, Halloween. 32 days til Halloween, Silver Shamrock.
Absolutely hated it when I first saw it, but a lot of that was wrapped up in expectations. The studio didn't market it correctly and people were confused about the intent. I have to come to enjoy it over the years along with 4 and 5. I'll probably stick with my blu-ray but glad to hear it's a good 4K release.
I understand it wasn’t clear what the movie was supposed to be and there was no internet back then but how was anyone who watched the trailer fooled into thinking it was a MM story?
Also no AFWA for HII. Seems unusual to do the first and then skip to III
I understand what you're saying but I think if I saw that trailer in 1982, I'd have just wondered why it didn't show Michael Myers getting ready to stab people and not that it was a different story. Then or now, calling it Halloween automatically creates the expectation of Michael Myers. I think the trailer needed to flat out say that it was an entirely new storyline if Universal had wanted to avoid audience confusion and disappointment.I understand it wasn’t clear what the movie was supposed to be and there was no internet back then but how was anyone who watched the trailer fooled into thinking it was a MM story?
You don't want to know how many times I've seen or, god help me, bought Halloween 5 then.Took you awhile to figure that out, huh?
With all this discussion, I need to watch it too. I'm not sure I've ever actually watched it before. I've had multiple copies over the years as part of the collectors sets, but usually always defer in favor of one of the Myers films when I pull out the Halloween set.I really need to watch III all the way through this month. I think I may enjoy it.
It's a close call in my mind. 5 at least has some characters that you like and it is a better movie but a lot of Resurrection ends up being inadvertently funny so I'd see an argument that Resurrection has more entertainment value than 5.I’m not gonna defend Halloween 5 at all, but Resurrection makes 5 look REALLY good.

To each their own but while Halloween III is not perfect, its cinematography and score are so clearly better than any of the movies that followed it in the original series that those elements alone immediately put it above Halloween 5 or Resurrection.
