The night Michael Myers doesn’t come home.
Switching things up, the series tried to take things in a different direction, subbing in mind control, androids, and Tom Atkins kickin’ butt for the same-old-same-old of The Shape stabbing folks.
While it failed at the box office, forcing producers to revert back to standard slashers, this sequel in name only remains a fascinating, creepy lil’ spookfest.
Maybe if they had just called it Season of the Witch and not tried to draft off the success of a previously-formed franchise?
Approach it with an open mind, and it’s all treat, no trick.
