Halloween franchise antagonist Michael Myers ranks pretty high among the most iconic slashers in horror movie history. This knife-wielding maniac has been described in-universe as "purely and simply...evil," and his eerily blank "face" and total wordlessness only add to that scary reputation.
Luckily, because he is so terrifyingly fun to watch, we've gotten to enjoy his appearances in countless films since the first Halloween in 1978, and fans have noticed quite a few small but interesting details about the character along the way. So scroll through and see if there's any little details you missed, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!
