Halloween III

Halloween III
-Daniel Challis is a doctor in a northern California hospital, treating an old man, Harry Grimbridge, who is scared of the halloween mask commercials playing. He is constantly screaming "They are going to kill us!" and in his hand is a jack o lantern mask with a strange tag on it, saying the Silver Shamrock Company. Later on, strange figures in gray come and kill him in the night and when Daniel catches up with them, they douse themselves in gas and set themselves ablaze

-Later on, Daniel decides to do a little investigating. And going with him is Ellie Grimbridge, Harry's daughter. This leads them to the predominantly Irish town of Santa Mira. When they get there, they pose as a couple and manage to get a tour of the factory. There they meet Conal Cochran, the head of the factory.

-As time goes on, they discover that these masks are bad. Inside each mask is a computer chip with a piece of rock from Stonehenge in it. And on Halloween, when the Silver Shamrock commercial is played, bad things will happen. Black magic will be released and a curse will go on to the wearer of the mask, killing them. So Daniel must stop this man from killing thousands of innocent people, mainly kids, from a huge bloodbath in the name of Samhain
