Villain Overview

I met him, fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong. I met this 6-year-old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes; the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply… evil.
~ Dr. Samuel Loomis contemplating his former patient: Michael Myers.
I always knew he'd come back. In this town, Michael Myers is a myth. He's the Boogeyman. A ghost story to scare kids. But this Boogeyman is real. An evil like his never stops, it just grows older. Darker. More determined. Forty years ago, he came to my home to kill. He killed my friends, and now he's back to finish what he started, with me. The one person who's ready to stop him.
~ Laurie Strode in the 2018 Halloween film.

History

Halloween

Six year-old Michael after killing his sister.

Michael Audrey Myers was born on October 19, 1957. When he was 6 years old, Michael Myers killed his older sister Judith, and was sent to Smith's Grove Sanitarium. His psychiatrist, Dr. Sam Loomis, spent eight years trying to reach him, and when he realized that he was pure evil, spent seven more trying to keep him locked away. Just as he was about to be permanently locked up, on Halloween Eve, Michael stole a Smith's Grove car and drove back to Haddonfield.

Michael stalked a young girl named Laurie Strode, and tried to kill her. In the process he killed Annie, Lynda, and Bob. He received some injuries from Laurie before Dr. Loomis shot him six times, causing him to fall out the window. Unfortunately, he survived.

Old Timelines

Halloween II

Taking place immediately after the previous film, Michael continued trying to kill Laurie that night and killed many more victims, most of them at Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, but was eventually shot in the eyes by Laurie, and set on fire by Dr. Loomis, who activated several flammable gas tanks and turned on a lighter, causing an explosion that set Michael on fire and supposedly burned him to death. From here, the old timeline splits into two alternate timelines.

4-6 Timeline

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers

Michael was left in a coma. He was sent to Ridgemont Federal Sanitarium until he was arranged to be transferred back to Smith's Grove. However, upon hearing that his sister Laurie Strode had died and her daughter Jamie Lloyd lived in Haddonfield, Michael awoke from his coma, killed the Smith's Grove paramedics and drivers, crashing the ambulance and mutilating their bodies. After the vehicle crashed off a bridge, Michael escaped and stopped at Penney's gas station and murdered the employees. Loomis arrives shortly thereafter in pursuit with a staff car loaned to him by Ridgemont, and upon discovering the victims, sees Michael wearing the mechanic's jumpsuit. Loomis tries pleading with Michael to spare Haddonfield's population with looking for Jamie and take him instead, but when Michael remains silent, Loomis fires at him, but Michael has vanished. Michael responded by driving off in a stolen tow truck, burning the station to the ground in the process and leaving Loomis stranded. Jamie saw him as Loomis finally arrived in town.

He contacted Sheriff Ben Meeker, with the pair of them heading out searching for Jamie, who was trick-or-treating with Rachel. In the meantime, Michael attacked the Haddonfield Police station, murdering Meeker's deputies still there, and threw an electrical technician named Bucky into some high voltage power transformers at a power substation, plunging Haddonfield into darkness. When Loomis reveals Michael has returned home to kill, the truckers of Haddonfield form into a lynch mob to deal with Michael themselves. Meeker and Loomis find Jamie and Rachel and take them to take refuge in the former's house. Unfortunately, Michael had followed them there hiding in the back of the surviving deputy's patrol car, and murders Deputy Logan, Meeker's daughter Kelly, and her boyfriend Brady as he pursues Jamie and Rachel. Rachel is knocked unconscious as they try to climb down from the roof of the Meeker house to escape Michael, and Jamie is then taken to her school by Loomis, only to be attacked by Michael there. He nearly has Jamie at one point, grabbing her by the leg, but a recovered Rachel arrives and blasts Michael with a fire extinguisher, forcing him to let go of Jamie. They are soon met by Earl and his team of truckers, who heard the school alarm go off, and on Rachel's suggestion, they flee Haddonfield, meeting up with the Illinois State Police on their way to Haddonfield to reinforce Sheriff Meeker, who direct them to a substation where they believe they will be safe. However, Michael had gotten aboard the truck, and kills Earl's fellow truckers in Unger, Orrin and Allen Gateway, before brutally ripping Earl's throat open, forcing Rachel to take control of the truck and try to throw him off of it. She eventually throws him off the roof and hitting him straight on while cursing him to die before ramming him. Jamie went over to check her uncle's body, and as he rose once again, Meeker and a team of both the lynch mob and Illinois State Troopers showed up and shot him relentlessly until he fell down a nearby mineshaft.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers

After being shot at and falling into the mine shaft, Michael escapes being blown up by Sheriff Meeker, the lynch mob, and state troopers when they toss dynamite down the shaft to finish him off by escaping into a nearby creek and slipping back into his coma upon being found by a local hermit. A year later, Michael awoke from his coma, and killed the hermit who had tended to him. Michael returned to Haddonfield, and began stalking Rachel and stabbing her with a pair of scissors, taking revenge on her for the attempt on his life when she ran him down a year ago. When Rachel's friends Tina Williams and Samantha showed up looking for her, Michael followed them to a party. At the party, Michael murdered Samantha and her boyfriend in the barn just as Tina found the bodies of her friends and the police officers sent to protect her after Jamie sensed she was Michael's next target due to the psychic bond she had gained with Michael. Unfortunately, when Jamie and her friend Billy from the Haddonfield Children's Clinic showed up to help Tina, Michael went after Jamie, and Tina heroically sacrificed herself with letting Michael fatally stab her while Jamie was rescued by Loomis, Meeker, and the joint task force of Haddonfield Police and Illinois State Troopers. After seeing Tina's corpse get taken away by the coroner, Jamie agrees to Loomis' plan to capture Michael once and for all.

Sheriff Meeker arranged to using Jamie as bait to lure Michael back to the old Myers house to capture him with a large force of policemen, including a SWAT team. Michael murdered the staff at the Children's Clinic to distract the police, luring Meeker, his deputies, and most of the state troopers back there, leaving only two troopers to protect Loomis and Jamie. Michael then killed the state troopers who had remained with Loomis and Jamie and began chasing Jamie through the attic. He pursued Jamie downstairs, where Loomis shot him with tranquilizers before finally beating him unconscious with a plank of wood before collapsing from a stroke, moments before Meeker and the rest of the police return after realizing they had been lured away so Michael could get to Jamie. Michael was taken into custody at the Haddonfield Police Station, and Meeker made preparation for him to be transferred to a maximum security facility by the National Guard where he would remain until he hopefully died. However, before that could happen, a mysterious Man in Black who had arrived in Haddonfield attacks the station, killing Meeker and his men, and destroying the cell Michael was in, freeing him, to Jamie's horror when she discovers the carnage and her uncle missing from his destroyed cell.

Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers

The residents of Haddonfield believed that Jamie and Michael died in the explosion at the police station in 1989. In fact, the mysterious man in black had taken them and had hid them away in an unknown building, and now had impregnated Jamie. Jamie hid her baby at a bus station and fled back to Haddonfield. When Michael forced her off the road, Jamie took refuge in a barn, where Michael found and impaled her on a corn thresher. As the bleeding Jamie told him he could not have her baby, Michael switched on the machinery and watched as his niece was gutted. He then returned to Jamie's vehicle in search of the infant, to find that he was not there.

Meanwhile, relatives of the couple who adopted Laurie Strode have moved into the old Myers house. Tommy Doyle tracked the call to the bus station and discovered her baby, who he named Stephen. Michael returned to his house and murdered the Strodes in search of Jamie's baby, leaving only Danny and his mother Kara alive.

Tommy and Loomis tracked the cult down to the Smith's Grove Sanitarium. As Loomis confronted Wynn, the latter congratulated him on being the first to recognize the unique power of Michael's evil. Michael then continued his search for Jamie's baby, only to be pumped full of drugs and beaten unconscious with a pipe by Tommy. As Tommy, Kara, and the children prepared to leave Smith's Grove for safety, Dr. Loomis decided to stay to attend to some "business". When Loomis returned, Michael was nowhere to be found, his mask is on the floor, and Loomis is heard screaming. An alternate ending has Wynn, dressed as Michael, being discovered by Loomis, before Wynn passes the Mark of Thorn to Loomis, effectively making him Michael's eternal guardian, causing Loomis to scream as he comes to the horrible realization.

H20 Timeline

Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later

The H20 timeline canonizes the events of only the first two films. Michael was not heard from since Laurie Strode had faked her death in an automobile accident, renamed herself "Keri Tate", and became the headmistress at Hillcrest Academy High School and had a son named John. After terrorizing the town, Michael pursued John and his girlfriend to Laurie's house, where the two finally meet each other for the first time in 20 years. Michael killed Laurie's boyfriend and Laurie, John and his girlfriend eventually escape, but afterward, Laurie orders them to escape (and they do so) while Laurie stays behind to fight Michael.

She picks up an axe and arrives back at the school. She finds Michael and enters a final battle with him. After a long pursuit, Laurie eventually stabbed Michael several times and threw him off a balcony. As Laurie prepared to finish off an unconscious Michael, a security guard stopped her, claiming that "he's already dead".

The police come and clean the mess and put Michael in a body bag and put it in an ambulance. Laurie receives the axe, steals the ambulance with Michael's body in the back and drives off with it. Michael is still alive and he escapes the body bag, and again tries to kill her but Laurie slams on the brakes, throwing him through the windshield. He gets up but Laurie runs the ambulance at her brother and the vehicle tumbles down a cliff but she escapes, while Michael gets trapped between it and a tree.

Laurie manages to recover and pick up her axe again and stands in front of Michael. They reach out to each other, but Laurie remembers all of the loved ones that Michael has taken. She pulls her hand back and delivers the final blow and decapitates Michael, finally killing him. Michael's head rolls down and stops. As police sirens are heard in the background, Laurie sighs in relief, now that fear and evil has finally been lifted now that Michael Myers is gone.

Halloween: Resurrection

Three years later, Michael's death in Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later was revealed to actually be the death of a paramedic. It is revealed that he was not decapitated, but he switched clothing and mask with a paramedic who was killed instead. After unintentionally killing an innocent man, Laurie had been arrested and sent to the Grace Andersen Sanitarium as punishment under belief she killed the paramedic in a state of insanity when she thought it was Michael. She was believed to be in a catatonic state by the nurses but was secretly preparing for her brother's inevitable return. Michael finally appeared on Halloween in 2001, killing two security guards to get to his sister.

Laurie lured him onto the institution, where Michael dangled over the edge of the roof and feigned confusion. Unable to risk-taking another innocent life, Laurie hesitated and attempted to remove Michael's mask to be sure. Michael took advantage of this indecision, grabbing his sister and stabbing her in the back. Laurie defied her brother one last time, kissing his mask and telling him that he would see him in hell before falling off the roof to her death. Later after killing his sister, Michael has begun to kill other people who won the contest to be in the internet reality show Dangertainment. Michael has tried to kill Freddie Harris, Myles "Deckard" Barton, and Sara Moyer but Freddie electrocutes Michael, tangling him up in electrical wiring before carrying Sara out of the burning garage. The Myers house burns to the ground, as Sara thanks Deckard for saving her life.

Michael's body and the bodies of his victims are then taken to the morgue. As the medical examiner begins to examine Michael's body, he awakens.

Final Timeline

In this timeline, Michael's background is subtly but significantly changed. He is not Laurie Strode's brother and is not suggested to have any living relatives. Additionally, he was arrested very shortly after the events of 1978's Halloween - the injuries he sustained at the end of that film were presumably too severe for him to continue killing.

Michael was apprehended by Sheriff's Deputy Frank Hawkins, who prevented Dr. Loomis from killing him and had him taken into custody. Michael was then returned to Smith's Grove Sanitarium, where he spent the next 40 years. While he mostly healed from his wounds, he is shown to have permanent damage to his left eye, where Laurie stabbed him with a coat hanger.

Halloween (2018)

40 years after the events of the first film, podcasters Aaron Korey and Dana Haines are doing a documentary based on the 1978 Haddonfield murders. They meet Michael who had since refused to speak for years, After showing Michael his old mask, they leave the Smith's Grove Sanitarium to pay a visit to Laurie Strode. Failing to convince her to do an interview with Myers before he was sentenced to maximum security, the bus transferring Michael crashes, and Michael escapes, killing a father and son by snapping their necks. Michael later kills Aaron and Dana at a gas station (and steals an engineer's clothes in order to wear them for himself) and retrieves his mask. Returning to Haddonfield, Michael starts a killing spree, massacring innocent victims including some of Allyson's friends. Allyson is found by Officer Hawkins and Dr. Sartain, Michael's new doctor. Dr. Sartain murders Hawkins, revealing that he wished for Myers to live so that he could investigate more of his true nature. Michael regains consciousness after being run over by Hawkins and stomps Sartain's head to a bloody pulp.

Myers then heads for Laurie's house, intending to end her as vengeance for the injuries she gave him years ago as well as for bruising his pride. Laurie engages Michael in a fight, ending with Michael getting the upper hand and throwing her out of the window. He then tries to kill Allyson and Karen (Laurie's daughter). The two women make it to the saferoom, and Karen succeeds at grazing Michael. Laurie returns and propels Michael down into the saferoom. After retrieving her daughter and granddaughter, Laurie traps Michael in the saferoom with metal bars and fills the room with gas. She then drops a flare into the saferoom, setting it ablaze. Myers is last seen looking at the survivors with a dissonant expression as the house burns to the ground in a deadly fire. After the credits heavy breathing can be heard implying Michael escaped the inferno.

Remake Timeline

Main article: Michael Myers (remake)

In other media

Michael Myers appears in the game Dead by Daylight alongside Laurie Strode. He came to the entity at his own will and became one of its minions.

Personality

Michael Myers is an unusually persistent, but very human serial killer in the H20 and Final timelines, with only the 4-6 and alternate 4-6 timelines as a genuine supernatural killer. Michael Myers was a young yet depraved 6-year-old boy who murdered his older sister Judith on Halloween night.

In the 4-6 timeline, Michael's actual personality becomes vague and conflates depending on the version. In the fifth film, Michael has an odd moment of humanity when he takes his mask off for Jamie and sheds a tear before resuming his rage. The difference is in the Producers cut where Michael is explicitly shown as a puppet bound by a supernatural curse, while the theatrical cut the curse is a theory brought up but never fully explored with Michael's rage being what drives him. In the theatrical cut, Jamie seemingly reaches out to him again, only for Michael to push her down harder onto the blades after seeming to reach back to her. In the H20/Resurrection and 2018 timelines, Michael Myers is portrayed as evil personified. He never shows any emotion and has no remorse for his actions. Furthermore, despite never speaking, he shows sadism as he enjoys making his victims suffer and pulling pranks to scare them.

For 15 years, he was kept in Smith's Grove Sanitarium, under the care of Dr. Samuel Loomis, who understood that he was actually pure evil, intending to put an end to peace.

On October 30, 1978, Michael escaped to seek vengeance and began his new intention of putting an end to his family and all the peace in Haddonfield, Illinois while being pursued by Loomis, who intends to stop him.

Michael seems to like playing games on his victims by sadistically stalking and terrifying them before brutally killing them. A perfect example of this is when Michael puts on a ghost costume and glasses, making Lynda believe it's her boyfriend Bob. When her back is turned to make a phone call, he strangles her to death with the telephone line.

The original Michael Myers has killed (at least) 81 people, and his remake has killed 46 (if you count the kills of his dream in Halloween II). No matter how young or old his victims are, Myers always resorts to the same methods; playing games before killing them in some of the most brutal ways imaginable.

Goals and Motivations

While it is widely accepted that Michael Myers's ultimate goal is to kill his own family, due to multiple changes in canon and continuity, confirming his ultimate goals and motivations to murder is nearly impossible. According to his nemesis, Dr. Samuel Loomis, the once-innocent boy just spontaneously committed murder apparently for no actual reason except that he is nothing more than pure evil. Indeed nearly none of his murders have ever led to anything remotely self-serving. However, despite his complete lack of reasoning, many of his actions exhibit distinct patterns and recurring traits, which may provide hints to understand his psychopathy.

Michael's most distinct characteristics are his preference to always be wearing a mask, his absolute inability (or refusal) to speak, and his murders, which all happen on Halloween night, suggesting that the night itself, or the sinister aspects of the holiday, play a part in his motivation. His murderous tendencies could be his own idea of how to celebrate Halloween. This indicates a somewhat childish mindset or at the very least, an attempt to come across as even scarier to his victims.

In his first murder spree as an adult, he exhibited an absolutely twisted sense of mischief, which he himself shows no signs of amusement for. He dresses up in costumes and masks to approach unwitting victims, occasionally murders his victims in elaborate and inventive ways, and would sometimes display his victims' corpses in ritual-like presentations, like placing his sister's tombstone over the recently killed Lynda. In the "Thorn" timeline (movies 4-6), he decorated an entire attic like a gallery, complete with candles, his victims on display, and a coffin reserved for his own niece.

Michael also appears to harbor some obsession with his sister Judith, his first victim from childhood. While he does kill very much all men and women who are unfortunate enough to be alone with him, his most seemingly "chosen" targets have all been women and girls who bear some (real or perceived) relation or resemblance to Judith. After killing Lynda, who was not at all a relative to the Myers family, he left her body displayed on a bed below his sister's stolen tombstone. In the comic book, Halloween: Nightdance, Michael stalked a girl named Lisa Thomas and buried her naked and alive in a coffin below a wooden cross bearing the name "Judith Myers". Judith's relationship with her boyfriend, as well as Lynda's similar relationship with hers, and the sexual nature of Lisa's burial, indicate that Michael may be motivated by a very morbid fetish or a deep hatred for sexually active girls.

But most famously, his ultimate target appeared to be Laurie Strode, who was originally his last sister, making it his most widely assumed goal to kill his own family. Despite that, his choice of targeted relatives still appeared somewhat inconsistent. Right after murdering his sister Judith, he was discovered by his parents and made no attempt to kill him. This motive is completely absent in the 2018 timeline, in which Michael and Laurie are not related and Michael has no known living relatives.

In the "Thorn" timeline, Laurie died during Michael's absence, leaving behind her daughter, Jamie Lloyd. As his niece and last surviving family member, murdering Jamie became his next goal. It is revealed that Michael's reason for targeting his own family, as well as the source of his supernatural strength, was a curse placed on him by the Thorn Cult. The curse of Thorn tasks the bearer to sacrifice his/her own family on Halloween night to spare the community from death and natural disasters. Michael is the latest bearer of the curse, with his niece his next sacrifice. It should be noted the curse is explicit only in the "Producers Cut" where Michael is depicted as a supernaturally bound slave to the cult and curse. In the theatrical cut, the curse is a theory never fully explored with Michael being driven by rage, and even Terrence Wynn describing him as pure evil.

However, in the separate "H2O" timeline, Michael's target is still his sister, Laurie Strode. He pursued her until he finally killed her, apparently completing his life mission. During which, Michael was not as persistent against Laurie's son John, who was also Michael's nephew, but rather attacked him primarily to get to Laurie. Because this timeline does not share continuity with the "Thorn" timeline, Michael's terrorism against his own family once again remains unexplained.

Yet one final time, all aforementioned sequels have been abandoned. Laurie Strode and Michael Myers no longer have any blood ties. Despite that, Michael's murder of his sister, Judith, remains true, and so were his initial attacks on Halloween night that traumatized Laurie, making it her life goal to finally defeat the Boogeyman in a showdown she believed was coming.

Aside from Laurie Strode and his family members, there are still vague patterns to his chosen victims, as well as rare individuals he has chosen NOT to kill. For instance, he chooses not to kill children who are trick-or-treating on the street, possibly because he doesn't want to cause widespread awareness of his presence. He has also chosen not to kill an unattended baby, hinting that he wouldn't kill targets whom he cannot scare. He typically bides his time to stalk and sneak up on victims before killing them. And he leaves his victims on display for other potential victims to find before killing them as well. This ghost-like desire to haunt his victims and leave an impression on others on Halloween night indicates that his true obsession is with Halloween itself. He may consider himself a proxy for Halloween, or the evil it represents to some people.

Quotes

My suggestion is termination. Death is the only solution for Michael. There is nothing to be gain from keeping evil alive. One shot of sodium thiopental would render him unconscious. I'll be with him to make sure his life is extinguished, my ear on his chest to hear for myself that his vitals no longer function and immediately incinerate the body. It needs to die, it needs to die! It needs to die!
~ Samuel Loomis on Michael Myers in the final timeline.
