Being a huge fan of John Carpenter’s Halloween, I have been an avid fan of the fan-made movies that feature the famed (and adorable) Michael (Mikey) Myers. I was also intrigued at how fans like myself have always kept the character alive and kicking, well, killing.
Enter Judith, the latest in the fan-made movies, directed and produced by Josh Hasty, with a twist. In this film, we follow to the moments of Judith Myers up to her death. All those familiar with Judith Myers will remember her in the original film as Michael’s older sister whom he murders 5 minutes into the film as a young boy. A great concept indeed and the filmmaking looks top-notch as far as production value goes being filmed in a recreation of the original Myers house built in North Carolina by Kenny Caperton who also scribed Judith . The film will be premiering at dusk today at MyersHouseNC which will coincide with the DVD release which will be limited to only 100. I am certainly looking forward to this on and will probably pick up the DVD as well if there will be any left, that is.
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 campout 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.
