Chris R. Notarile has produced a high-quality fan film that enhances the backstory surrounding “The Shape’s” release from Smith’s Grove Sanitarium.
In the short, a group of Doctors debates whether “model patient” Myers has been rehabilitated enough for a transferred to a minimum security facility, no longer under Dr. Loomis’s thumb. The decision reached is one that they will undoubtedly regret!
In October of 1978, on the cusp of his 21st birthday, Michael Myers qualified to be transferred to a step down locked facility. The decision was determined by a board of doctors at Smith’s Grove Sanitarium. It was a decision they would forever regret. Picking up moments after the end of John Carpenter’s original classic, this new short follows Michael Myers on his walkabout, before his eventual capture.
The 8-minute short pays tribute to the original Halloween with characters like Dr. Hill (a nod to co-writer/producer Debra Hill) played by Dani Scott and Dr. Castle (a nod to original Shape actor Nick Castle) played by John Atkins.
Notarile also tells us he’s planning two more installments that will shed more light on what happened between 1978 and 2018. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled in order to share them as soon as they drop. Stay tuned and check back often!
