Art Imitating Life | Michael Myers

August 14th, 2020

Last week we looked at the dream demon, the nightmare himself, Freddy Krueger. We treated him as if he were a real world killer, and broke down his crime spree, in a realistic manner. Today we do the same with another beloved onscreen killer: Michael Myers.

Michael Audrey Myers was born on October 19th, 1957 to his middle class parents, with one older sister. Reports suggest that Michael was disturbed at a very young age, with him claiming to hear voices telling him devious things. One day, when he was just six years old, young Michael gave into those voices; he picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed his sister nine times before walking outside to wait for his parents, and ultimate detainment. 

Myers spent his entire life in psychiatric care, mostly being tended to by one Dr. Sam Loomis. After spending years with Michael, Loomis concluded that the young Myers was nothing but pure evil, an assessment that would be proven to be true years later when Michael broke out of the institution to return home. The rest, as they say, is history.
