TRICK-OR-TREAT! It's Halloween day in the quiet rural community of Haddonfield, Illinois. Judith Myers and her best friend D'arcy Mims are planning a Halloween night camp-out at The Myers House with their friends. Judith is trying to forget the growing tensions in her family and wants to immerse herself in a carefree celebration, but her reclusive brother's presence casts an ominous shadow over their cheerful preparations. This short film breaths life into an often overlooked character from John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN - Judith Myers may have only had a short appearance in the classic film, but she nevertheless played a crucial role in the forming of the Michael Myers story. Director Josh Hasty (A Mannequin in Static) and writer Kenny Caperton (the creator of The Myers House NC) join forces to reinvent a classic character in an original new story.
“Happy Halloween Haddonfield”. A “Halloween” inspired font rolls the credits of the introduction. Brian Wilson sings “Don’t Talk”. Great vintage flickering film effect as a friend enters Judith’s house.
Do you recognize the house? I would assume so since this is a life-size replica of the original house used in the Halloween Movie (http://www.myershousenc.com/ to read about the house).
Fans of “Halloween” know that Judith has a very short part in the opening of the original film. This Fan Film is a short story (26 minutes) about Judith on Halloween night prior to Michael’s attack.
Michael lives in the attic. Judith and her friend D’arcy are going to camp outside.
The great soundtrack continues with Smashing Pumpkins and Alice Cooper. The fan who made this really put a lot of detailed effort in it. I really appreciate that. For example, “The Thing” on tv, Judith humming a song that sounds similar to what Annie sings about Paul in the original and piano music reminiscent of the original John Carpenter soundtrack.
