** Cochran's mooks were {{Magitek}} clockwork robots and obedient factory workers, but unlike [[Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz past]] [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory examples]], there wasn't anything the LEAST bit funny about them - they were designed as low-tech [[TheTerminator Terminators]].

A week before Halloween, Dr. Dan Challis (Tom Atkins) gets called in to treat Harry Grimbridge, a horribly beaten toy salesman with a Halloween mask in a death grip who mumbles ominous warnings in Challis' presence. It gets stranger from there -- one of the salesman's assailants breaks in, murders Harry, then sets himself on fire. Challis teams up with the man's daughter, Ellie (Stacey Nelkin), to unravel the mystery; the trail leads them to the town of Santa Mira, which serves as the home of the Silver Shamrock Novelty Company. Ellie's father had recently visited the company to pick up a shipment of their popular Halloween masks -- masks like the one Harry had in his hands the night he died. While investigating the town, Dan and Ellie discover that Silver Shamrock has nefarious plans in the works... and that Harry's death served as a warning of things to come this Halloween season.

While the film has become something of a cult classic in the years since its release, it performed poorly at the box office, and fans and critics [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks were very harsh on the film for not involving Michael Myers]]. As a result, John Carpenter walked away from the franchise, which would be given a reboot with ''Film/Halloween4TheReturnOfMichaelMyers'' continuing the story from the original two films.

* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: When Challis destroys the Silver Shamorck factory, Cochran simply smiles and claps before being consumed by the explosion. However it's not certain if he's really dead given his supernatural nature.]]

''Halloween III: Season of the Witch'' -- the red-headed stepchild of the ''Franchise/{{Halloween}}'' franchise -- came about when producer Creator/JohnCarpenter decided to transform the series into a yearly {{anthology}} of films centered around various aspects of [[AllHallowsEve Halloween]]. This installment, released in 1982, [[InNameOnly attempted to accomplish the task]], but ended up meeting with a massive backlash from a fanbase hungry for more Michael following the success of ''Film/HalloweenII1981''
