Despite its low budget, a mostly no-name cast, and age, many fans out there still find John Carpenter’s original masterpiece Halloween to be one of the best film’s our genre has ever seen; and we completely agree.

Ever wonder what led up to Judith Myer’s staying home that fateful evening? Get ready to experience one fan’s rendition of that sliver of backstory.

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.
