Myers (Rise of the Boogeyman) (2011)

*** (out of 4)

The third and final film of Chris R. Notarile's "prequel trilogy" takes place in Haddonfield as Judith Myers is taking her younger brother Michael trick or treating. Along the way Judith runs off with her boyfriend as a mysterious figure begins to stalk Michael. I won't spoil who this figure is or what happens but I must say it's certainly an interesting idea. This "prequel" takes place a few minutes before the legendary opening sequence to John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN and at first I was thinking that this might have been the weakest of the director's trilogy but then the final minutes really pack a nice little punch. I wouldn't say the explanation of Michael killing is sister is perfect but it's certainly a lot better than a bigger budgeted remake came up with. Obviously there are a couple nice touches here including the use of the song Mr. Sandman and of course Carpenter's song gets a nice play (and I'm sure without permission but that's okay with me). At just 6-miutes there's really not too much filler as we're introduced to the characters and then the story takes off. Vincent Depinto does a nice job in the role of Myers, which is another plus. Fans of the series have been treated to many explanations over the years but this short is certainly worth checking out.
