KILLER SITE OF THE WEEK
Michael Myers (also known as The Shape), is a fictional serial killer from the Halloween horror series. The killer has appeared in seven films, with an eighth film currently filming, as well as comic books and other media. He will be seen once again in the 2007 remake of the original "Halloween". One of the first true slasher villains, his killings usually take place on or around the night of Halloween, and in many of the films his primary targets are family members.
Early Life (1957 - 1963)
Michael Audrey Myers was born October 19, 1957 to John and Edith Myers. Michael had two sisters, Judith Margret Myers and Laurie Myers. The family resided at a two story ranch house (45 Lampkin Lane) in the suburban town of Haddonfield, Illinois.
Michael experienced typical child development up until his sixth birthday. As a child he was considered bright. He learned to speak rather quickly and read at a much more advanced pace for his age, that is until his fifth year where he started to quickly lose some speech and began to show some stereotypical autistic behavior (preoccupation with parts of objects, staring off into space.)
Based on information from both the sixth installment (Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers) and the novel based upon the first film, Michael's grandmother lived across the street from the Myers family on Lampkin Lane.
The sixth installment also reveals that Michael at some point in his childhood was chosen by a cult to bear the Curse of Thorn. The cult believes that a child from one family must be chosen to bear the curse and sacrifice their entire family in order to save the rest of the community from death. The curse apparently makes the user immortal and grants super-natural abilities. The curse is what the cult believes causes Michael stalk and kill family members.
It is assumed that, Mrs. Blankenship, Michael's babysitter was the one to give him the curse. She was a member of the cult and would tell Michael stories about Thorn and their beliefs. Michael was eventually brainwashed by the stories and the curse. On Halloween, October 31 1963, Michael was under the influence of curse long enough to begin the sacrifice of his family.
October 31, 1963
Mrs. Blankenship was watching over a 6 year old Michael, and his 2 year old sister Laurie. Michael crossed the street and watched his teen sister Judith Margret Myers and her boyfriend making out on the couch before they headed upstairs. Michael, still dressed in his clown costume, entered the house through the kitchen, obtained a butcher knife, and waited until the boy left. Michael then walked up the stairs and brutally stabbed his sister to death.
Michael was found by his parents on the curb in front of the house. Michael was taken to be put under psychiatrist care by Dr. Loomis. Dr. Loomis was the assistant of Dr. Wynn, the owner of the facility where Michael was taken. Loomis spent years trying to learn why Michael would commit a murder at a such a young age while no signs of motivation were present. Michael never spoke a word and only waited there patiently never talking or crying.
Michael was visited occasionally by his parents who hoped for Loomis to get through to him. Michael's sister, Laurie, also met Michael in the facility for the first time since the murder of her sister, but Michael began violently grinding his teeth at the sight of her. Both their parents later died in a car accident leaving only Laurie for Michael to find and kill. After years of extensive methods by Loomis to get through Michael, Loomis finally came to the conclusion that Michael was nothing but pure evil. After all his years of evaluation, there was no evidence or remorse that could be found in relation to the crime Michael committed at six years old. Loomis then spent the next seven years trying to get Michael put in a federal prison as he fears that the current facility will not be able to hold Michael for much longer.
The head of the facility believed Michael was not capable of further murders as he has not shown any signs of behavior that could be attributed to that characterization. Loomis tried to convince them that Michael was simply using his calmness to fool everyone until he could escape. Eventually , Loomis had to bring Michael to a court hearing to learn if Michael would remain in the facility or be transferred to a more secure prison. This is where the first movie begins.
In 1978, Michael hijacked the car meant for his court transfer. The car was driven by Loomis's medical colleague and assistant nurse, Marion Chambers. After attempting to attack Marion, Michael got into the car and drove away quickly. His destination was his hometown of Haddonfield. When the sun rose, he pulled over and murdered a tow truck driver and stole his clothing. He had, however, dropped a book of matches, originally belonging to Chambers, giving Loomis the vital clue that he had indeed been there.
On the following day, October 31, Michael returned to his childhood home, which was now vacant, run-down, and on the market under Strode Realty. That morning, he had found and killed a stray dog and eaten it. Moments later, he heard voices and investigated, thus finding his target. He followed the young woman named Laurie Strode while she was in school, while she walked home from school, and when she went to baby-sit in another neighborhood along with her friend, Annie Brackett. Laurie was babysitting for Tommy Doyle while Annie was watching Lindsey Wallace. Later that night, Annie received a telephone call from her boyfriend Paul explaining that he needed to be picked up. Lindsey was soon thereafter taken across the street to continue watching Forbidden Planet with Tommy and Laurie. When Annie got to her car, she discovered it was locked, and returned to the house to get her keys. Annie then returned to the car, failing to notice that the door was now unlocked. After getting inside, she noticed that the windshield was fogged over. As she puzzled over this, Myers emerged from the backseat and began strangling her. Michael then slit her throat and carried her back inside the house.
Later on, Annie's other friend, Linda Van Der Klok, and her boyfriend Bob Simms showed up at the Wallace residence, where they made love in the empty house. Afterwards, Bob went downstairs for beer and discovered the back door hanging open. Thinking it was a prank by Linda and Paul, he searched the kitchen only to find Michael hiding inside the closet. Michael lifted Bob up by the throat and then proceeded to stab him with a butcher knife, pinning him to the wall. Michael then put a sheet over himself and placed Bob's glasses on top of the sheet. He then continued upstairs where he violently strangled Linda with the phone cord. He then propped the three deceased teenagers' bodies in an upstairs bedroom.
Just before Linda's death, Laurie had received a strange phone call from Lindsey's house. Laurie decided to go across the street and investigate. When she arrived, she thought her friends were playing pranks on her. To her horror she discovered the gruesome display of her brother's victims and her sister's headstone. When Michael was within reach of Laurie, he stabbed her in the left shoulder and knocked her down the stairs. Laurie fled and Michael pursued her. Once outside Laurie attempted to gain attention from the neighbors, only to have them think of it as another Halloween prank. Laurie finally made it back to the Doyle's house and was able to alert Tommy. He came downstairs and let her inside.
Michael stalked her all the way to the Doyle residence. Once inside Laurie noticed one of the side windows was missing. Hearing the killer's heavy breathing, she armed herself with a knitting needle. Michael then attempted to stab her, but was off the mark. Laurie then turned around and stabbed him in the neck with a knitting needle. Thinking he was dead she moved upstairs. Myers continued to pursue her, however. Laurie moved into the bedroom and secured herself in the closet. Myers attempted to pull the door open, but he eventually resorted to breaking the door down with his fist. As Myers leaned into the closet, Laurie stabbed him in the eye with a coat hanger. Michael dropped his knife while attempting to put his hands to his eyes, and Laurie used it to stab him in the chest. She emerged from the closet to find Michael lying on the floor, seemingly dead. Laurie then instructed Tommy and Lindsey to call the police from a neighbor's house. After they took off, Michael once again went after Laurie, now attempting to strangle her. Loomis, who had been on his patient's path the whole day, appeared in time and shot Michael six times at point-blank range. Michael then fell from the second-story balcony. Despite his seemingly fatal injuries, he stood and fled from his assailant.
Halloween II (1981)
Continuing on the night of Tuesday, October 31, 1978, Dr. Loomis exits the Doyle house and walks onto the front lawn. He inspects the spot where Michael had landed and finds a patch of blood. Before others suffer the fate of death at the wrath of his patient, Dr. Loomis resumes his relentless search for Michael along with Sheriff Leigh Brackett. The traumatized Laurie Strode is taken by ambulance to Haddonfield Memorial Hospital for the injuries she obtained during the chase and attacks. During this time, nearly a block away, Michael obtained a knife and murdered a girl inside her home.
Interrupting a television broadcast of Night of the Living Dead, Haddonfield reporter Robert Plant reported from the scene of the Wallace residence. He confirms that three teenagers (two girls and one boy) have been found murdered in an upstairs bedroom. Soon after, Loomis and Brackett spot a mysterious man wearing a similar mask slowly walking down a sidewalk. Loomis gets out of the sheriff’s car and trails the masked stranger. Brackett follows closely behind Loomis, but a speeding police vehicle slams into the masked individual slamming him into a parked van. The two vehicles explode, trapping the man in an inferno. The police official leaves his car virtually unharmed, but Loomis wonders if Michael was the victim in flames. Brackett forcefully screams to Loomis "Is it him? Is it him, or not!?". Brackett’s police deputy Gary Hunt quickly arrives on the scene to confirm that there are three youths found dead across the street from the Doyle house.
He believes that one of the teenagers is the sheriff’s own daughter, Annie. When Brackett discovered it was Annie he returned home, leaving police deputy Hunt in charge. Michael, however, is still in search of Laurie. While making his way through downtown Haddonfield, Michael hears a radio broadcast confirming that Laurie has been taken to Haddonfield Memorial Hospital.
Michael soon arrives at the hospital. Jimmy Lloyd, an EMT and a student at a local college, reveals to Laurie that the radio and television broadcasts have identified her attacker: Michael Myers. She is initially confused in the presence of her new friend as to why the man who was "that little kid who killed his sister" would be after her at all. Later on, she dreams about a moment she experienced seven years earlier . When Laurie was ten years old, she visited Michael at the mental institution where he was being held. She also remembered the day her adoptive mother Pamela Strode confessed she was not her biological mother. Laurie then has flashbacks of her real family and remembers she once had an older sister who was killed by her younger brother, then a six-year-old. She realizes that it is her own brother who is after her. Laurie is clued in to the presence of her feared tormentor when the hospital goes dark and the staff aren't around. Since the telephone in her room wasn’t working, she decided to search for a working phone and then try escaping on foot.
Dr. Loomis and Deputy Hunt meet a dentist named Graham at his office. The burned corpse is unveiled and Graham checks the teeth determining the man is young, perhaps seventeen or eighteen. Loomis says Michael Myers is twenty-one and that everyone must assume he is still alive. Deputy Hunt then instructs his associate patrolman that all police officials do a sweep of the city from Chestnut Avenue to the Bypass checking every street, house, and backyard for the escaped patient. During this time the town begins to form mobs and riot in front of the Myers House.
Later on, Nurse Marion Chambers arrives in town to tell Loomis he is wanted back at Smith’s Grove–Warren County Sanitarium, not only by his senior doctors, but by the Illinois governor himself. News of Michael’s exploits has reached across the entire state. Loomis feels that he cannot leave until he finds him. Accompanying Marion is an Illinois state marshal who is instructed to transport Loomis back to Smith’s Grove. When all hope of finding Michael is lost, Loomis reluctantly agrees to go back with Marion.
While en route to Smith’s Grove, Marion reveals to Loomis that some previously sealed files on Michael Myers have been found, confirming that Michael and Laurie are siblings. Loomis realizes why Michael "came home" to Haddonfield. He killed one sister fifteen years ago, now he has returned to kill the other. Loomis fires a warning shot into the front passenger window, and the marshall swiftly turns the car around and the trio heads back into town to locate Laurie.
At the hospital, Michael has killed almost the entire hospital staff, and is now after Laurie once again, chasing her through the hospital, nearly catching her on several occasions. Marion and Dr. Loomis arrive and rescue her. Loomis shoots Michael five times, rendering him momentarily incapacitated. The marshal sees Michael’s body collapse, honestly believing Loomis succeeded in killing him. Loomis instructs the marshall to stay away from Michael, as he is still breathing. Loomis then instructs Marion to call for help from the marshall’s radio. As Loomis is distracted while attending to Laurie, the marshall begins approaching Michael's body once again. Loomis shouts for the marshal to get away from Michael, but then the killer rises up and slits the marshal’s throat with a scalpel. Dr. Loomis and Laurie take off in the darkened hospital hoping to find a good hiding place only to discover Michael had systematically locked all the doors leading to a series of rooms used for surgery.
Michael locates the pair. Laurie reluctantly takes one of Loomis’s firearms and attempts to speak to Michael. He stops and stares at her for a moment, but soon begins approaching her once again. Laurie then fires two bullets into his face. While Michael begins to weaken, Loomis and Laurie fill the room with fresh oxygen and ether by turning on nearby tanks. Dr. Loomis frees Laurie from the room and then ignites a cigarette lighter. Laurie takes refuge behind a drinking fountain just as the room explodes. After a moment, she sees Myers slowly stumbling out of the room, completely engulfed in flames. He takes a few steps, and then finally falls, seemingly dead (though we later find out that he was only in a coma).
Until twenty years later, watching Michael lying on the floor in flames is Laurie’s last memory of him. For the next several years, she hoped that Michael had died from his wounds. But even fire couldn’t stop him from continuing his pursuit of his family..
On the following morning of Wednesday November 1st, Laurie is pushed in a wheelchair by Nurse Marion to an ambulance. Laurie is to be taken to a bigger hospital for further treatment.
* Note: In the Television cut of this film, Jimmy Lloyd the EMT, is in the ambulance when Laurie was helped in. He sits up to reveal himself when the doors are closed. Laurie is happy with tears to learn he survived, exclaiming "We made it!" The two hold hands and the ambulance drives off.
Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)
Loomis and Michael survived the explosion at the hospital. Loomis has been scarred and walks with a cane, while Michael had spent an entire decade in a coma. On October 30, 1988, two Smith's Grove medical attendants were tasked with transferring Michael from Ridgemont Federal Sanitarium in Ridgemont, Illinois, back to Smith's Grove. Soon after, while in the back of the ambulance, the male attendant declared that Michael has one living relative, a niece, residing in his hometown of Haddonfield. Upon hearing this news, Michael suddenly awakened, killed the two attendants and caused the driver to crash into a river.
Later on, Loomis rushed to the crash scene, searched for Michael's body, and came up empty. Loomis' superior tried to persuade him that, even if Michael were alive, he would be too weak to cause any trouble.
However, Loomis knew better and headed to Haddonfield. Michael had entered a gas station, killed its attendants, and acquired another mechanic's uniform. Loomis made the grisly discovery and, for a moment, the two stare at each other as Loomis pleads with him not to return to Haddonfield, only for Myers to nearly kill him in his escape.
Loomis took a fresh look into Michael's past to contemplate the latest motive for his actions. After Laurie's death, her daughter Jamie is living in the care of the Carruthers family. Upon hearing this, Loomis rushes to save her from her uncle only to find that Michael has beaten him there and killed the family pet.
The ever-methodical Michael attacked an electrician and propelled his body onto the power lines, knocking out power for all of Haddonfield. He then entered the police station and killed everyone inside. Michael continued to stalk Jamie and nearly attacked her, but Loomis stopped him. Then they all drove to the sheriff's house, where they boarded up all the windows and doors. The sheriff, his deputy, and Rachel's boyfriend, armed with shotguns, guarded the house from inside. However, Michael outsmarted them all, by hiding in the back seats of the deputy's police car. Unwittingly the deputy drove Michael, hidden in the back seat of the car. Myers then sneaked into the house before it was boarded up. Thus, they had locked themselves up with the very person they were trying to escape.
Michael then surprised and killed them off one-by-one; the deputy by crushing his neck and several bones in his arms, the sheriff's daughter by impaling, and Rachel's (Jamie's adopted sister) boyfriend by crushing his skull. Myers chased after Jamie and her older, adoptive sister Rachel. Ultimately, Jamie managed to escape, but Rachel plunged from the roof, apparently to her death. Jamie ran into Loomis, and the pair broke into the elementary school that Jamie attended. Michael surprised them both and then threw Loomis into a classroom door. As Michael closed in on Jamie, Rachel, who had in fact survived the fall, appeared and sprayed Michael with a fire extinguisher.
The two sisters escaped with a group of armed townsmen who also had a score to settle with Michael, as he murdered one of their sons. Michael stayed one step ahead by hiding under the truck, only to climb up and stab some of the gunmen, as well as throwing a couple of them off the moving vehicle. Finally, after ripping the driver's throat open, the girls were left by themselves to fight off Michael, who was now slashing off the roof of the truck. Rachel abruptly stopped the truck, propelling Michael forward onto the ground, and then ran him over. This time, Michael didn't stir and Jamie got out of the car and touches his hand. Michael then nonchalantly sat up, but this time, the state police had finally shown up and they gunned him down as he fell into a mineshaft.
Jamie and Rachel returned home to their parents. As the evening ends, the opening sequence of the first movie repeated itself, except that instead of Michael dressed in a clown outfit, stabbing his sister, it was Jamie in the same outfit, stabbing her foster mother. Apparently when Jamie touched Michael, his homicidal impulses transferred to her. Loomis tried to shoot Jamie, but the girls' police escort tackles him before he could do so.
Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)
After Michael fell down the mine shaft, the state troopers tossed dynamite down the mine to make sure they finished the job. But Michael crawled out in time. He spotted a hermit's house in the nearby woods and passed out as he tried to strangle him. The hermit then nursed him back to health, but on Halloween, 1989, Michael awakened, killed the hermit, and continued his insatiable quest to kill his niece.
Jamie, now in a mute state, has been put under doctor's care at a psychiatric home. She had been having nightmares since the events of part 4 and apparently, now shared some sort of telepathic link with her uncle; she knew exactly when and where he would strike next. Michael snuck into Rachel's house, eventually killing her. Michael then killed off a group of teenagers (and two police officers) as he slowly built up to his main target, Jamie.
Loomis, who was slowly losing his mind, used Jamie's connection with Michael to set a trap for him at his house. Myers disposed of the police and even wounded Loomis as he stalked Jamie. after Loomis almost got through to him. When Loomis tried to take Michael's knife away, Michael hesitated and slashed him. Jamie ran into the attic, where she found her dead sister Rachel, her dog Max and couple of other bodies. When he finally had the opportunity to kill Jamie, he suddenly stopped when she says "Uncle?" Afterwards, Jamie says "Let me see". In a bizarre moment of humanity, Michael listened to his niece and eventually took off his mask, beginning to cry. When Jamie said "Let me" and tried to wipe away his tears, Michael recoiled in a rage and attacked his young niece again, lifting up the coffin and tossing it across the attic. He angrily stalked Jamie until he encountered Loomis, who caught Michael in a net of heavy chains, shot him with several tranquilizers and beat him into unconsciousness with a board from one of the broken windows.
For the first time in the series, Michael was captured and imprisoned, but a mysterious stranger dressed in black blasted him out of jail, attacking and apparently killing the remaining police with an automatic weapon before explosively detonating Michael's cell door. Jamie then enters the prison to find signs of extreme violence and an empty cell.
Note: In this movie a runic symbol is revealed to be on one of Michael's wrists during his time with the hermit. Later in the movie the same symbol is seen on the "man in black's" wrist in a series of scenes showing him meeting with Michael or in his proximity. The man in black's face is never revealed, nor is there any dialogue between him and Michael. This symbol is revealed as the Rune of Thorn in later films.
Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)
It is revealed that Myers was saved by a secret cult of Druids that existed to worship and protect him. This same cult also kidnapped Jamie, who was now 15 and pregnant with a son. Although Jamie escaped from the cult, Michael stalked and eventually killed her. However, he was unable to find where she hid the baby. Loomis, meanwhile, finally learned the secret of Michael's homicidal rage and apparent immortality: It was the curse of the symbol "Thorn," which makes the victim believe that if he kills all of his family members, he will bring balance to the conditions that afflict humanity. The symbol is also shown to be a pattern that appears in the stars from time to time. Its appearance was when Michael committed his murders, on Halloween. In this way, Michael's complete back story is told as well as his motivation. It is revealed that Dr. Wynn is actually the man in black and is the leader of the cults in which are responsible for possessing Michael with the Curse.
At the end of the theatrical version of the movie, the audience is led to believe that Loomis was murdered by Myers, as a loud scream was heard from inside the building in which Loomis and Myers were last seen in, and the mask of Michael Myers is found on the floor. In the unreleased cut of the film, Loomis went back inside and finds Michael on the floor (After being stopped by Tommy Doyle), however, as Loomis pulls the mask off, it's instead Dr. Wynn. As Wynn realize Michael is gone, he then passes on the duty of watching Michael on to Loomis, and Loomis receives the Thorn symbol on his right wrist. Loomis screams as he seemingly feels the mysterious power of Thorn. Michael, in the Man in Black clothes, hears the echoing scream of Dr. Loomis, and takes one look back as he then walks once more into the night.
Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later (1998)
Laurie Strode had faked her own death and changed her name to Keri Marie Tate. She became the Headmistress and a literature teacher at a respected secluded private school called Hillcrest Academy in fictional Summer Glen, California. Myers discovered her whereabouts on October 29, 1998 as he ransacked Nurse Marion's house and killed her, back in Langdon, Illinois. However, after all these years, Laurie has "visions", out of fear, of Michael (coming toward her, or seeing his reflection in a window). There is a class trip to Yosemite, in which John, Laurie's 17 year old son, is allowed to participte(his friends convince him not to go). Michael comes to Hillcrest for Laurie and John. He sneaks past the guard at the entrance to the school. As this is happening, Laurie tells her boyfriend, Will, of her true identity and family history. The security guard comes to warn Laurie of the mysterious car at the gate(Michael's car). She then realizes the phones are dead, and she finds John's camping gear in the closet, realizing he is still on campus.
Meanwhile Micheal has killed John's friend, and his girlfriend. John and his girlfriend run to get to Laurie, with Micheal in pursuit. As soon as the two kids meet up with Laurie and Will, Laurie sees Michael through the window, realizing her worst fears.
Everyone is in the building, and Laurie tells the kids to hide in a closet. Then, Laurie and Will, see someone walking in the shadows, and Will shoots the figure. Upon closer inspection, they find it was the security guard. Then Michael comes in and stabs Will in the back, and lifted him off the ground. Laurie finds the kids, and gets in the car and goes to the front of the school.
She tells them to leave the school. Once this happens, Laurie destroys the gate-opener, locking her and Michael in. She grabs the firemen's ax, and starts shouting, "MICHAEL", trying to lure him to her. Back in the school Micheal and Laurie have a violent struggle. Laurie eventually stabs Michael several times, and sends him flying off a balcony into the cafeteria of the school. He lays there, seemingly dead, and Laurie prepares to stab him even more, when the security guard stops her saying, "he's dead, he's dead".
Police officers come, and eveything seems to be okay. However, Laurie knows Michael's immortal "nature". She takes the axe she had earlier, swipes a policeman's gun and orders paramedics to load Micheal's body into a nearby van. She drives off, continously checking to see if his body bag is moving. Once it does start moving and he gets out of the bag, Laurie suddenly stops the car, hurtiling Michael through the windshield. Once he stands up, Laurie rams the van into him and sends the car down an off-road hill. She jumps out of the van, and the van, Michael, and her tumble down the hill, and Micheal gets pinned between the van and a tree. Laurie walks over to him with the axe. Micheal reaches out to her, and Laurie breaks out in tears , and goes to touch his hand. Before she touches his hand, she realizes his true nature, and decapitates her brother.
Halloween: Resurrection (2002)
Laurie Strode thought she had put an end to her evil brother once and for all. It turns out, while Michael was still in the Academy's dining hall, a Summer Glen paramedic came to inspect his motionless body. Just as he was about to unmask him, Michael arose and crushed the paramedic's larynx. Michael then switched clothes with the now-mute and unconscious paramedic. When Laurie hijacked the coroner's van, she believed her brother had been loaded in. After succeeding in crashing the van down a steep slope off a mountainous highway, Laurie beheaded the costumed and masked man. When it was discovered she killed an innocent man, she was arrested for homicide. Shortly afterward, Laurie was committed to the psychiatric care facility of Grace Andersen Sanitarium.
Four years later, on the night of October 31, 2002, Michael eventually found his sister at the institution. He broke into the facility, tracked down Laurie, and chased her as she made her way to the rooftop. Ardent preparation was the only thing left for Laurie in her captivity. She had planned an ingenious trap for her brother's eventual return. When he did fall for the trap and was hanging upside-down, Laurie wanted to make certain Michael was the man behind the mask.
As she proceeded to unmask him, Michael grabbed her left hand. Equipped with his knife in her right hand, Laurie tried to drive it into Michael's abdomen, and he then grabbed her right hand as well. The rope suspending Michael broke and the two siblings were pulled to the other side of the roof. Michael grabbed the ledge with Laurie hanging on, he then drove the knife into Laurie's back. Laurie accepting her death, kissed the lips of her brother's mask and vowed that she would see him in Hell. Michael then released the knife, letting Laurie fall to her death. Coldly watching her as if he admired his handiwork, he knew that he had finally won.
One year later on October 31, 2002, Michael was home in Haddonfield. He was living in a section of tunnels below his childhood house.
The abandoned house itself was later being used as the setting for an Internet reality show by Dangertainment owner and operator Freddie Harris along with his girlfriend and colleague Nora Winston. Six college students, three from Haddonfield University, have won as contestants to spend Halloween night in the 'now-famous' residence.
That night, Michael succeeded in killing five of the college students and two of its crew members. It ended when Freddie and the reserved college student, Sara Moyer managed to electrocute and burn Michael while the garage was engulfed with flames. Michael's body was thereafter taken to the morgue. As a female coroner was about to unmask his charred face, his eye lids open.
In June of 2006, it was announced that Rob Zombie would be writing, directing and producing a Halloween remake/reimagining of the original film with a set release date of August 31, 2007. While the film will be a new beginning to the franchise, it has been made clear that the character of Michael Myers will remain. In an interview on the film series' official site, Rob Zombie answered questions by fans regarding the film, assuring that the mask will remain "classic." In many interviews he's also expressed plans to include "prequel" elements, further expanding on the reasons for Michael's actions and his life before escaping Smith's Grove Sanitarium.
In a recent interview for MTV, Rob Zombie further explained his plans for the character: "I want the lead character to be Michael Myers, He's not just a faceless thing floating around in the background and then you focus on these girls. I feel that that's where you can make it different and that's where you can make it more intense... There's a lot of great stuff they hint at [in the original], but you never see. That's where I think there's potential to make something unique. When you research anybody, whether it's Charles Manson or Jeffrey Dahmer or Henry Lee Lucas and you see the things in their past, you go, 'Serial killer is the only job this guy was qualified for.' It makes it even more disturbing when you see the events that make someone have no concept of those things." Rob Zombie further commented ""There are even things about the original Michael Myers that bothered me. Like, he killed the only mechanic that wears a pristine mechanic's uniform. It's just things like that that bothered me."
On December 24, it was announced on Rob Zombie's MySpace page that Tyler Mane will be playing Adult Michael Myers in Zombie's remake of John Carpenter's Halloween.
Daeg Faerch will be playing Michael Myers at 10 years old.
Is Michael Myers Immortal?
Though some credit Michael's juggernaut-like state, which allows him to recover from deadly experiences, to his own natural rage and murderous psyche, it is more commonly accepted to be caused by the Curse of Thorn, as stated in the sixth film. This curse possesses and compels Michael to kill all the members of his family, and all who stand in his way. According to myth, this is supposed to spare the "village" Michael inhabits from a form of plague or disaster. With that in mind, it is possible that Michael only reluctantly accepts the duties of his job, and actually feels that by killing these people, he is doing what is best for humanity. The Curse uses Michael as nothing more than a puppet and a guide to the appropriate victims. Thorn seems to fuel Michael in a way far exceeding any ordinary human capacity, since he was completely mobile, regardless of the fact of his muscle deterioration to him in H5 due to his comatose state..
It is also theorized that Michael himself, the man behind the mask, feels remorse for his killing. In Halloween 5, he seemed to fight back the curse and when he removed his mask, Michael wept with remorse. It was as though he himself wasn't in control of actions, or was forced to act by the curse and could be possessed by the curse. Michael has, on occasion, gone out of his way in order to kill certain people, namely, the members of the Cult. It is unknown what Michael may have endured at their hands, and as such, he may have had a vendetta against them, since taking time to kill them would slow his progress towards baby Stephen.
Michael Myers Trivia
* In one scene of Halloween 4 when Michael throws Dr. Loomis through the glass, his hair seems to have changed both style and color from combed and brown to sticking up and blonde.
* In Halloween, Dr. Hoffman had typed Michael's middle initial as "M" on a Ridgemont Federal Sanitarium document. The producers of this installment probably just forgot that John Carpenter filmed additional scenes for the original Halloween. These scenes, which were filmed to coincide with the upcoming release of Halloween II, revealed that Michael's full name is Michael Audrey Myers. This particular scene occurs at Smith's Grove on May 1, 1964.
* Kane Hodder, who played Jason Voorhees in four of the Friday the 13th films, has expressed great interest in portraying Myers in a future Halloween film. However it was announced that Tyler Mane (X-Men) would be the lead.
* In an episode of Robot Chicken, Michael Myers was one of 6 horror movie villains to take part in a Big Brother spoof (the others being Freddy, Jason, Pinhead, Leatherface and Ghostface). He was also the contestant to be evicted. He unmasks to reveal that he is Mike Myers.
