Michael Myers started the whole slasher craze. In his whited-out Capt.
Kirk mask, he set about killing off the neighborhood’s promiscuous
teenage population. He spent his childhood locked away in a mental
institution after stabbing his older sister to death, but no treatment
could cure his urge to kill. Michael possesses a strong will, stealth,
and most importantly, immortality — traits that would be emulated in
many future horror movie killers.
