HALLOWEEN: Fan Theory Suggests Michael Myers Has Rare Medical Condition

A new fan theory suggests that Michael Myers from John Carpenter’s classic slasher Halloween has a rare medical condition that causes an insensitivity to pain.

Screen Rant writes:

While there is a congenital medical condition that causes an individual to have an insensitivity to pain, it is highly improbable that Michael Myers has such a condition. The medical anomaly is peripheral neuropathy that affects the nervous system and causes an individual to not feel pain. Scientists have found that, due to the inability to experience pain, the condition can lead to a reduced life expectancy. This is caused by an accumulation of injuries that the individual is not able to feel or notice no matter the severity such as broken bones and severe wounds.

The original film begins on a cold Halloween night in 1963, when six year old Michael Myers brutally murdered his 17-year-old sister, Judith. He was sentenced and locked away for 15 years. But on October 30, 1978, while being transferred for a court date, a 21-year-old Michael Myers steals a car and escapes Smith’s Grove. He returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois for his next victims.
