The latest episode of the 80s Horror Memories docu-series looks back at the 1982 Halloween sequel Halloween III: Season of the Witch
JoBlo.com recently launched a new weekly documentary series called 80s Horror Memories, and the first five episodes of the series were all dedicated to films that were released in 1980: Maniac, Dressed to Kill, Alligator, Friday the 13th, The Shining, Prom Night, and The Fog. The second five episodes were a journey through 1981, covering The Funhouse, The Burning, Friday the 13th Part 2, My Bloody Valentine, Halloween II, The Evil Dead, The Howling, and An American Werewolf in London, as well as the careers of horror hosts Elvira and Joe Bob Briggs. We started our look at 1982 with Conan the Barbarian and continued with The Thing and an examination of the short-lived 3-D boom. Now the fourteenth episode of the series takes a look at the oddball Halloween sequel Halloween III: Season of the Witch (watch it HERE) – and to hear all about it, check out the video embedded above!
New episodes of 80s Horror Memories will be released through the YouTube channel JoBlo Horror Originals every Monday.
Here’s the info on 80s Horror Memories: It’s been over 40 years that the decade that shaped the horror movie industry began and having lived through most of those years personally, we at JoBlo/Arrow in the Head have decided to create a 10-part documentary series in which not only cover every nook and cranny of the biggest horror themes from 1980 to 1989 but also what was happening in the world at the time. Join us as we walk down Horror Memory Lane!
And here’s the info on this particular episode: In this episode, we’re heading to Santa Mira, a quiet little town where nothing bad could ever happen to peel the mask away and show the guts of what many call the bastard stepchild of Halloween. The movie that makes Joe Bob Briggs rant and rave… even more than usual. So prepare for that song to get stuck in your head as we stare into, the screen of Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
This episode of 80s Horror Memories was written by Jessica Dwyer, narrated by Tyler Nichols, edited by Mike Conway, produced by Berge Garabedian and John Fallon, co-produced by Mike Conway, and executive produced by Berge Garabedian. The score was provided by Shawn Knippelberg. Special guests in this episode include Sandy King (Vampires) and Patrick Lussier (Halloween H20).
