When Michael Myers returns in Blumhouse’s Halloween, slated to hit theaters on October 19th, co-scribe Danny McBride has revealed that The Shape will no longer be immortal. While many see this as a detour from previously established mythologies painting Myers as a supernatural embodiment of pure evil, an indestructible boogeyman, this isn’t necessarily the case.
Could there be scientific, as opposed to supernatural, explanations for Myers’ incredible strength, seeming indestructibility, and ability to endure extreme retaliation? Mr. H believe so. From actual medical conditions that prevent individuals from feeling pain to the powers of focused meditation, the explanations for The Shape’s paranormal abilities could, in fact, be rooted in reality.
Depending on what scares you most, this could make Myers even more terrifying than he already is. As fearsome as ghost and zombies can be, human monsters are the most harrowing by far. Give Mr. H’s video a spin below and let us know what you think in the Comments section!
