Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Trivia: The film's "Silver Shamrock" commercial theme has become something of an infamous meme, due to it being very catchy and a bit of an "earworm." The song is set to the tune of "London Bridge is Falling Down," which was chosen due to it being in the public domain, and thus free to use.

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.

Trivia: The adult male voice heard in the "Silver Shamrock" commercial is director Tommy Lee Wallace.

Trivia: Original "Halloween" star Jamie Lee Curtis has a voice-over cameo in two spots in the film. She's the automated voice on the phone that's heard when Challis is trying to make a call. She's also the voice on the intercom at the Silver Shamrock factory.

Trivia: Many people complain about this being the only "Halloween" film not featuring the character Michael Myers. However, series creator John Carpenter never intended for the series to revolve around Myers. After the conclusion of "Halloween II," Carpenter envisioned the "Halloween" series as becoming an anthology, with a new film released every year-or-so in October, and each film telling a different story related to the holiday. Unfortunately for Carpenter, audiences had come to associate the series exclusively with the Michael Myers character. So the producers quietly dropped his anthology idea and brought Myers back in the next film, making this movie the "odd one out" in the franchise.

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.

Question: This has been a question that's always brought up. Was Ellie Grimbridge always a robot from the very beginning, or was she turned into (or exchanged with) one when she was held captive at the shamrock factory?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: She was turned into one when she was captured. The robots didn't speak and if you notice that after he finds her, she never says a word. As well, she displayed genuine emotion throughout the film before she was captured, something the robots also never did.
