How the Hell Did Michael Myers Learn to Drive a Car in 'Halloween'?
It's Halloween, and that means there's plenty of horror related cinephile goodness coming throughout the month. Kicking off the spooky season is a bit of horror themed hilarity taking aim at the aptly named slasher classic Halloween. Fans will get a chance to see the film in theaters again later this month, but before that, filmmaker Adam Green has answered one of the plaguing questions from the original film. While it doesn't seem like a big deal that the masked killer Michael Myers steals a car and drives to Haddonfield, one of the issues with that plot point is brought up by Dr. Loomis. If Myers has been locked up in the mental institution this whole time, how the hell did he learn how to drive? A "deleted scene" answers our question.
Here's Adam Green's "deleted scene" from Halloween, brought to our attention by Bleeding Cool:
As a bonus for you horror fans, that's Kane Hodder underneath the Michael Myers mask. Hodder played Jason Vorhees in some of the later Friday the 13th sequels. How's that for a horror cross over? Oh, and the driving instructor is Avatar star Joel David Moore. Anyway, this is just an entertaining video making light of a slight plothole in the original film. Of course, something like this isn't meant to be legitimate criticism or dissection of Halloween, and it's all in good fun. Stay tuned for more Halloween goodness this month and make sure you find out which theater is playing the theatrical re-release of Halloween. Funny?
