“Death has come to your little town, Sheriff”. Michael Myers wants to come to town but is he currently streaming in your town right now? It’s time to find out. Let’s see if any of the ‘Halloween’ films are currently streaming on Netflix.
The face of Michael Myers is definitely one of the most recognizable in Hollywood and no I’m not talking about the one that likes to shout ‘Yeah baby, yeah!’. No, I’m speaking of the pale white mask and overall wearing Michael Myers that has no qualms in leaving death and destruction in his wake.
What is ‘Halloween’?
Out of all the big bad slasher villains, it is Michael that has been around the longest. First debuting all the way back in October 1978, not only was it the debut of ‘The Shape’ it was also the debut of future Golden Globe winner Jamie Lee Curtis.
In 1963, a young Michael Myers stabs his older sister to death. In the aftermath of her death, Michael is sent to Warren County’s Smith’s Grove Sanitarium and spends the next 15 years confined. After escaping from the sanitarium, Michael soon chooses his potential victim and begins to stalk Laurie Strode and she becomes his obsession. Obsessed with killing Laurie, Michael has returned on numerous occasions to seek his murderous intent upon the Strode family.
The timelines are a little convoluted as there are now numerous timelines within the Halloween franchise after they’ve had some reboots and retconning fans have still enjoyed the release of 11 titles from the franchise and with a 12th on the way has further retconned the continuity of the previous films.
