* VindicatedByHistory: While the film was absolutely savaged by both fans and critics, but preformed adequately at the box office, though its gross paled in comparison to the first two films and even some that followed (such as Return of Michael Myers and 20 Years Later), it has since picked up a fairly significant [[CultClassic cult following]] for its unique plot, fantastic score and atmosphere, and VisualEffectsOfAwesome.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Many feel that despite the burden of having to replace Michael Myers, Conal Cochran was a good villain in his own right, and the late Dan O'Herlihy delivered a performance that even those who dislike the film, cannot help but admire.



** The fact that the villain somehow got a piece of Stonehenge, and when the hero asks him how Cochran simply Handwaves it.
** The fact that Cochran's plan is so ludicrous, that it falls apart even under the slightest bit of logic or scrutiny.

it with 'Now that's quite a story..."
** The fact that Cochran's plan is so ludicrous, ludicrous and full of holes that it falls apart even under the slightest bit of logic or scrutiny. scrutiny, which the film itself even alludes to, by showing at one point that the tags in the masks (which contain the magic that makes them deadly to the wearer) are easily knocked out. There's also numerous other things, like expecting that a good bulk of the children in America have bought the masks without tearing or knocking the tags out and are at home to watch the broadcast instead of out trick or treating or in bed or watching monster movies on some other channel.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some who dislike the film admit that the concept of the film and the anthology film series has potential, but feel that the execution is both lousy and laughable.
* VindicatedByHistory: While the film was absolutely savaged at first and flopped at the box office, it has since picked up a fairly significant [[CultClassic cult following]] for its unique plot, fantastic score and atmosphere, and VisualEffectsOfAwesome.

laughable, or at the very least they should have went with another idea.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: In-Universe example. Despite Cochran intending for his horror marathon to be watched by children, [[Film/Halloween1978 the original Halloween]] is stated to be in their lineup. Even if it is [[Bowdlerization edited for television]], how many parents would allow their kids to watch an R rated movie?

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Conal Cochran]] is the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive CEO]] of Silver Shamrock Novelties, a company known for its Halloween masks, which it shipped all over the United States. Cochran had built these masks with a computer chip made from a fragment of Stonehenge. When Silver Shamrock's commercial would air on Halloween night, the chip was to unleash a lethal swarm of insects and snakes, killing the wearer and anyone in the immediate vicinity. Cochran is shown demonstrating how these masks work on an innocent family, causing them to be poisoned and eaten. His plan is to [[WouldHurtAChild kill thousands of children]] all over the country, partially to bring back the darker aspects of the Celtic festival Samhain, which he connects to witchcraft, but also just because he considers this [[ForTheEvulz mass murder to be a fun joke]], the best ever in fact, because it's a joke on the children.
