(at around 21 mins) Michael Myers does appear briefly in this film, on a television advertising the original Halloween (1978). It comes near the beginning when Dan Challis is drinking in a bar. See more »
(at around 34 mins) After being startled by Starker and complying to his request to have a drink from his bottle of alcohol Challis wipes the opening using his handkerchief with one hand, takes a swig himself with the other hand, and winces from the liquor. As Starker talks about Conal Cochran you can suddenly see the silhouette of a cigarette in Challis' mouth then shortly thereafter hear the flick of a lighter and see him light the cigarette.

I think Tommy Lee Wallace's "Season of the Witch" is an underrated classic. There are no points here for outstanding acting performances, or original plot etc (although I would like to add there's no dreadful acting) but bonus points for the music and direction, which go together to make a really creepy horror. It contains superb imaginative gore sequences, to rival the likes of "The Fly" or "Dead & Buried".
Whereas the Michael Myers type slasher movies have done the genre to death, this one remains dusty and untouched. There aren't any other horror movies worth mentioning, like this. It is very sci-fi horror though, so I think if you've a problem with far-fetched content, you'd best avoid the film as you will find it ridiculous.
I called it Season of the Witch in the first sentence, because I prefer to think of it as it's own movie, rather than having anything to do with the original classic "Halloween". This is the only problem with the movie.
"Oh ... and Happy Halloween".
