Corrected entry: During the scene where Dr. Challis is in the bar, he asks the bartender to change the tv channel after getting ticked off at the continuous Halloween song commercial. The new channel has a football game playing on it. According to the timeline for the movie, this day was Friday, October 29th. Very unlikely any televised football would be playing on television on a Friday in October, even college football.

Correction: Some stations broadcast high school football on Friday nights.


Corrected entry: When Buddy Kupfer Sr. is bitten by the rattlesnake, we see the snake bit him in the lower leg and then continue to yank and tug and hang onto his leg for upwards of four seconds or more. In reality, a rattlesnake bite from start to finish is under a second, and they cannot/do not hang on and/or yank during the bite.

Correction: They can and do get their fangs hung up on muscle tissue, bone, or even pant legs. A new TV series on Discovery called Guinea Pig showed the host being bitten by various snakes. A rattlesnake shown did bite, and hang on for a couple of seconds.

Continuity mistake: When little Buddy and his family are being murdered by the use of Little Buddy's Pumpkin mask, the Silver Shamrock tag on the back of the mask disappears and reappears several times.

Trivia: Spoilers: Originally, the credits were going to be accompanied by the sound of wailing cries of children, implying that Cochran's plan worked. However, it was later decided to instead simply play the movie's theme over the credits to leave the ending more ambiguous, so that the audience will never know for sure whether or not Challis stopped Cochran's plans.


More trivia for Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Question: This is a two-parter: 1) Why was the guy killing all of the kids, and 2) How exactly did he do it?

Answer: He was trying to perform a human sacrifice. He mentioned to the doctor when he was tied up that three thousand years ago, there was a massive sacrifice where the world flowed with the blood of children and animals. Now the planets were aligned again and it was time for a new one in order for the people of his craft to control their environment.


Answer: Because he was an evil mastermind. He implanted lethal microchips in the tags of Silver Shamrock masks so when the commercial aired on T.V. on Halloween night, it would take a deadly effect on the kids wearing the masks while watching the commercial.
