We all know what Michael Myers is up to on Halloween, but what does the invincible killer do the day after the spooky holiday? A new short aims to answer this age-old question.
Fright Rags Productions has released a three-minute online film called November 1st, and it shows what the mask-wearing murderer does when the dust settles after chasing teenagers and Jamie Lee Curtis around all night. And surprisingly, it seems like Michael Myers is a pretty boring and average guy when it’s not Halloween. He sleeps in, enjoys a fine cup of coffee, takes out the trash (which may or may not contain body parts), hits up a local cafe for some sweets, and rents a video — on VHS.
The funny and artsy little short, which unfolds to the smooth jazz stylings of Will Grove-White’s “I Can’t Stop Crying,” was created by Eric Maira, Chris Hogan-Roy, Benjamin Scrivens and Chris Tanski, and stars Scrivens as Myers, according to Bloody Disgusting. The film is pretty clever and offers a fun look at Myers’ boring regular life once the calendar changes over to the eleventh month, and it should definitely help anyone who’s feeling a bit of the post-Halloween blues themselves.
As for the actual Michael Myers, you’ll be able to see him in his more natural state when the new Halloween hits theaters next October.
