Six years after Michael Myers last terrorized Haddonfield, he returns there in pursuit of his niece, Jamie Lloyd, who has escaped with her newborn child, for which Michael and a mysterious cult have sinister plans.
Three years after he last terrorized his sister, Michael Myers confronts her again, before traveling to Haddonfield to deal with the cast and crew of a reality show which is being broadcast from his old home.
An apparent murder-suicide in a hospital emergency room leads to an investigation by the on-call doctor, which reveals a plot by an insane toymaker to kill as many people as possible during Halloween through an ancient Celtic ritual involving a stolen boulder from Stonehenge and Halloween masks.Written by
Tommy Lee Wallace in the documentary on the blu ray release says that 60 percent of the screenplay they filmed is the work of Nigel Kneale. He says that John Carpenter did a rewrite and that Carpenter was surprised that Wallace did additional rewriting himself - rather than just accept the draft he had done from Kneale's original script.

(at around 1h 15 mins) As panoramic views of the liquor store, the Rose of Shannon motel and the Silver Shamrock factory are shown, the current time in the movie is shown as 7:30PM. When the next scene immediately cuts to Cochran looking over a chair-bound Dr. Challis, the time on the digital clock above the door says 7:46. See more »
I saw something that night... I don't know, your father came into the hospital. He- I thought he was crazy, out of his mind. He's hanging onto a Halloween mask, he wouldn't let it go... And what he said was, "They're gonna kill us all". And in a little while he was dead. And I don't know what the hell is going on!

Cuts on the Infogrames Australian DVD release include: During the scene where Harry Grimbridge is murdered, the assassin enters the room and poises his fingers above his head, before using them to kill him. Only a couple of seconds of his death is shown, before it cuts to the mask laying on the floor. When Starker is killed, they do not show the second shot of the assassin's face after the fountain of blood sprays from Starker's neck. It cuts straight to Ellie jumping in shock after Marge accidentally hits her car horn, and is missing the scene where she is walking through the parking lot. Similarly, when Marge is killed, only a quick shot of her hands covering her face is shown, before it fades out. During the Halloween montage towards the end of the movie, the scene showing the trick-or-treaters in Phoenix, Arizona, is cut out, and goes straight from the shot of the Silver Shamrock van in Seattle to the aerial view of Phoenix at the end of the scene. Again, when Teddy is killed, the scene is cut. It shows the assassin forcing the drill into her face, but cuts out the part at the end where it gets up and walks off. A final change occurs at the hospital when Harry Grimbridge is admitted. Some of the dialogue between Walter Jones and Challis is missing. When we see the shot of Grimbridge on the stretcher in front of the TV, the lines "Hey, can I leave now?", and "Sure, I don't see why not" are missing, and cuts straight to Challis shaking Walter's hand and saying, "Thanks a lot for bringing him." These cuts also occur on the 2008 Lionsgate DVD. The missing scenes are restored on the 2013 Australian Blu ray release, which features the complete uncut version of the film originally released in cinemas. See more »
I really liked the idea of making Halloween series, as an anthology. But if they made this film good, the producers would have been successful. And they could continue the anthology, as what they wanted. But.....
1) People love Michael Myers just too much, and nobody can blame them.
2) The film made no sense at all.
3) Should have called this Halloween, not Halloween III
1/10 awful. Glad they brought back Michael Myers
