Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Fingers In The Eyes’ From ‘Halloween III – Season Of The Witch’ (1982)

One of my biggest fears is having my eyes gouged out of their sockets.  Mostly because it would hurt like a sonofabitch, and also because it would mean that I wouldn’t be able to see.  And I kind of need to see.  But anyway, it you get your eyes gouged just right…..and in the process get some bones broken……you wouldn’t need to worry about seeing, because you would most likely be dead.  Kind of like that guy in the hospital in Halloween III: Season Of The Witch!

Quick sidenote:  I love this movie.  But moving on to this edition of Sunday Bloody Sunday, yes we’re talking about gouged-out eyes.  Aside from being known for the masks and Silver Shamrock jingle, Halloween III had some pretty sweet death scenes.  And when shop owner Harry Grimbridge thinks he’s safe in the hospital and a mysterious stranger comes into his room, one of those pretty sweet death scenes occurs.  And we get a bonus death somewhat afterwards in the form of gasoline and a lighter!  Btw – how rude is it to wake up Tom Atkins while he’s napping?!?  Ughhhhhh.  Watch it below.  Happy Halloween!!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Motel Laser Death’ From ‘Halloween III – Season Of The Witch’

Don’t you know that you’re not supposed to poke around with things you don’t know anything about?  If only Marge from 1982’s Michael Myersless sequel, Halloween III: Season Of The Witch, could have taken heed of those exact words.  Welcome to this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday where as I’ve stated previously, I’m going to stick with the Halloween theme throughout this month.

So, I bring to you the death scene from Halloween III that doesn’t involve a kid getting his head eaten by bugs after wearing a self-destructive mask.  Yes, it’s the unfortunate demise of Marge, a store owner who sells the Silver Shamrock masks and has come down to the town of Santa Mira to pick up a new order.  As she’s relaxing in her hotel room and begins to fumble around with a microchip that has fallen off from one of the masks, this happens:

Poor Marge.  That laser really fucked her up.  Btw, I love how Tom Atkins and his moustache are getting some sweet lovin next door while all this is going down.  I said it before and I’ll say it again:  I like this movie.  I know, I know – it doesn’t have Michael Myers in it.  It’s dumb as shit, but overall Halloween III has a traditional feel to it that makes me get into the Halloween spirit.  And that’s good enough for me!  Oh – and let’s not forget about Tom Atkins’ moustache either.  That thing will make any movie better.

*What do you feed that thing?*
