Clever Short Film Explores What HALLOWEEN’s Michael Myers Does on His Day Off

Where does Santa Claus vacation? You know it. I know it. It’s a sandy beach with a cobalt blue sea and fruity drinks with umbrellas. The elves are there for some reason (maybe because Saint Nick forces his employees to go on vacation with him?), and they always want to play volleyball because it’s the one time a year they can dive face first without freezing their noses off.  Since Halloween‘s Michael Myers is the Santa Claus of Halloween, it’s high time we get a glimpse into his life when he’s not spreading holiday fear.

Cue the fine folks at Fright Rags, who’ve crafted the short film November 1st to help us understand The Shape on his first day off of the year. They are Dian Fossey, and a video store is their mist.

I love how they get this right from the title screen.

The short is fun and a little fiendish in its use of props, but it’s smart enough not to overstay its welcome. As soon as the gag starts to feel thin, they drop that P.J. Soles cameo (!) on us with a big wink and a sharp knife.

Plus, even though he’s an unstoppable monster, we can all empathize with what he’s going through. It’s the furthest from Halloween we’ll be today, and that sad situation deserves a visit to the cafe, some light house cleaning, a good movie, and a lot of deep sighs.

How many days ’til Halloween, Silver Shamrock?
