#1 Michael Myers from the Halloween series.
Michael Audrey Myers was born on October 19, 1957. He had an older sister named Judith and a younger sister. The family resided in a two-story house at 45 Lampkin Lane in the suburban town of Haddonfield, Illinois. By 1963, when Michael was six-years-old, he claimed to have suffered from bizarre, inexplicable nightmares and heard a “voice” in his head that would tell him to do things. The voices “tell me to say I hate people”, says Michael. His dreams were filled with images of actual events that took place several centuries ago at the dawn of the Celtic age. He dreamed of a disfigured fifteen-year-old boy named Enda who, after being rejected by his true love Deirdre, brutally murdered her during the feast of Samhain, on what would later be called Halloween night. These visions would have a greater impact on Michael later on in his life. On October 31, 1963, Michael committed his first act of murder. His parents were away, and he was at home with his sister Judith who was supposed to be babysitting him, but cared more about spending an intimate moment with her boyfriend, Danny. After Danny left, Michael, dressed in a clown costume, went into the kitchen, picked up a butcher knife, walked up the steps and stabbed Judith to death. He then quietly walked back downstairs and into the front yard where he waited for his parents and the police to collect him. Michael was taken to Smith’s Grove Sanitarium where he became the patient of a psychiatrist named Doctor Samuel Loomis. He spent fifteen years with Doctor Loomis, barely moving, never speaking a word.
On October 30th, 1978, Michael Myers destroyed his room at Smith’s Grove and carved the word “sister” on his door before breaking out. He also released the other patients from their rooms. At the same time, Dr. Loomis and Nurse Marion Chambers were arriving at the facility to transfer Myers for his court hearing. Noticing the patients roaming around outside the hospital, Loomis got out the car to investigate as Michael attacked Marion and sped away in their station wagon. As he drove across Illinois, Michael stopped to murder a truck driver to steal his boiler suit. Traveling to Haddonfield, Michael returned to his childhood home. The next day on Halloween, a teenaged Laurie Strode dropped off a key at the Myers house for her realtor father, and was immediately recognized by her brother. Michael proceeded to stalk her and her friends Annie and Lynda throughout the afternoon. He also stole Judith’s gravestone from the local cemetary, and broke into Nichol’s Hardware Store to acquire knives, rope, and a Halloween mask. Meanwhile, Dr. Loomis had followed Michael to Haddonfield and warned town sheriff Leigh Brackett of the danger he posed.
That night, as Laurie and Annie were babysitting across the street from each other, Michael watched them from the shadows. He murdered Annie first, strangling her in her car as she left to meet her boyfriend, before slitting her throat. Later, Lynda and her own boyfriend Bob showed up, only to fall victim to Michael as well. Worried about her missing friends, Laurie crossed the street to investigate, only to find Annie’s body arranged under Judith Myers’ gravestone, and Lynda and Bob hidden in the closets. Michael lunged at his sister, catching her on the arm with his knife, and she ran for help. Michael followed her across the street, and Laurie was forced to stab him with both a knitting needle and his own knife. As Michael rose to resume his attack on Laurie, Dr. Loomis appeared and shot him six times in the chest, causing him to fall off the balcony. When Loomis went to check the body, Michael had vanished.
Taking place immediately after the previous film, the injured Michael fled into the back alleys of Haddonfield. He killed teenager Alice Martin before breaking into the elementary school and scrawling “Samhain” onto the chalkboard in blood. As news of the murders spread, chaos erupted in Haddonfield, with citizens rioting and teenager Bennett Tramer being killed in the confusion. Learning Laurie’s location from a news report, Michael resumed his search for her at Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, where she had been taken for her shoulder wound. Michael systematically murdered Laurie’s protectors at the hospital, including a security gaurd, paramedic, doctor, and four nurses. Meanwhile, Dr. Loomis, who was continuing his search for Myers with the help of the Haddonfield police, was told by Marion Chambers of Michael’s sibling connection to Laurie Strode. Loomis, realizing why Michael had come home, tracked him down to the hospital and saved Laurie’s life a second time. Loomis and Laurie worked together to cause an explosion in the hospital operating room, which engulfed Michael in flames.
Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
Michael survived the fire and was placed in a coma for several years, during which Laurie was killed in a car crash. As he was being transferred back to Smith’s Grove, he heard Laurie had a daughter, Jamie Lloyd, that mean Jamie is Michael’s niece, so he killed everyone in the ambulance and stalked Jamie, trying to kill her. He killed several of Sheriff Ben Meeker’s cops in the process, as well as an angry mob led by Earl. Eventually he was shot by Sheriff Meeker and his troops, sending him falling down an abandoned mine shaft.
Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
Michael survived the fall and escaped into the river as one of Meeker’s troops threw dynamite down the shaft. He ended up at a hermit’s house where he went into a coma until the next Halloween. He killed the hermit, causing Jamie to have a reaction that resembles a seizure each time Michael kills someone. He returned to Haddonfield and killed several more people, including Jamie’s foster sister Rachel, and the new dog, Max. At one point, he listened to what Dr. Loomis had to say, and at another, he temporarily stopped his rampage of terror when Jamie addressed him as “uncle”, even removing his mask for her when she asked and briefly showed a tear going down his eye, but quickly loses control soon after. Eventually Dr. Loomis beat him with a wooden plank and trapped him in a net, where he was locked up. Meeker planned to have him transferred to a high security cell for the rest of his life, but before he could, he and his police force were killed by a man in black, who then set Michael free.
Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers
Michael finally killed Jamie several years later, impaling her on a corn thresher, but earlier she had a baby which was also his by force conception, whom Michael could not find. Tommy Doyle, whom Laurie was babysitting in the first movie, found the baby and named him Stephen. He also discovered the truth behind Michael’s motives: he is part of the Thorn Cult, with the Curse of Thorn (explaining his invulnerability), and must kill every member of his family as a sacrifice. After killing several more people, Michael eventually got tired of being used by Dr. Wynn, so he killed him and all the cult members (though some speculate Wynn survived, as his death was never shown onscreen). As he tried to kill Danny and Stephen, he was injected by Tommy with corrosive chemical and beaten with a metal pole (the chemical was seen gushing from the eyeholes of the mask).
What became of Michael afterwards is unknown; when Dr. Loomis returns, his mask was left on the floor, and we hear Loomis scream offscreen. The two most likely speculations are that either he killed Loomis, or else left (leaving his mask for unknown reasons), and Loomis saw he was gone.
Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later
Michael was not heard from since he was set on fire in Halloween II, but returned twenty years later and attacked Laurie, who faked her death in an automoble accident, renamed herself “Keri Tate”, and became the headmistress at Hillcrest Academy High School. He was seemingly decapitated by her.
However, he was not decapitated; he forcibly switched with a paramedic, who was killed instead. After killing Laurie, Michael found several people filming a reality show at his house. One of them, Sara, electrocuted him, but he survived. What becomes of him afterwards is unknown.
