Michael Myers

Fist Appearance: Halloween (1978)

One Halloween, Little Mikey Myers dresses as a clown and kills his older sister. he spends the next 15 years in a mental institution staring at a wall waiting for October 30, 1978 to take a drive to his home town of Haddonfield, Illinois and teach some babysitters to do a better job of baby sitting. His Psychiatrist knew this was going to happen but still couldn't stop him.
I like to revisit this series every Halloween. Once every couple of Halloweens, I'll watch the entire franchise in one sitting, it pretty much takes all day.
Rob Zombie eventually tried his hand at remaking Halloween. It wasn't terrible but he decided to focus on what makes Michael tick. This had the unfortunate side effect of making him a little less scary.
This is the second time I've tackled Mr. Myers for this series. Since he's probably my favorite of the classic slashers, it probably won't be the last time.
