‘Halloween III’ Invades ‘Amazing Stories’ Episode

The Halloween legacy has been referenced in popular culture numerous times over the years, and we want to pay tribute to each one of those shout-outs in an ongoing regular feature here at Halloween Daily News, this time focusing on a Halloween III: Season of the Witch theatrical poster that we spotted in the background of a scene from a 1985 episode of Steven Spielberg’s classic anthology series Amazing Stories!

In the fourth episode of Season 1, titled “Mummy, Daddy”, an actor still stuck in his Mummy movie costume races to the hospital before his wife gives birth, but a real mummy has other plans. You can clearly see the Halloween III poster (as well as those from a few other genre favorites) in the background during one sequence (pictured) at a gas station, where a horror fan attendant gets spooked by the costumed actor.

The “Mummy, Daddy” episode of Amazing Stories featuring the Halloween III movie poster can currently be viewed on Netflix via instant streaming here.

Where else have you seen (or heard) the Halloween movie franchise referenced in popular culture?
