Michael Myers Actor Reveals His Favorite Halloween Franchise Kill

There is a lot to choose from, but the actor who brought Michael Myers to life in Halloween Ends has revealed what his favorite kill in the franchise is. Director David Gordon Green has most recently taken the helm of the Halloween franchise and did so with the help of James Jude Courtney as the ever-mysterious Michael Myers. Courtney has made the infamous William Shatner masked killer his own in the reboot trilogy and has seemingly had a lot of fun doing it.


Michael Myers is in the horror movie hall of fame as he has amassed an astronomical amount of kills. Though the exact number is up for debate with the installment of Halloween Ends, there is a consensus that he has killed north of 100 people across the franchise. It stemmed from the original Halloween when Myers murdered his older sister Judith when he was six. From then, he has been on a rampage, as he has done everything from taking out an entire paramedic team after being comatose to taking out a full squad of firemen sent to put out the fire that Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) set in her own home. Suffice it to say, Myers is the personification of a murderous rampage who takes his work very seriously.

How could one narrow it down with all of these amazingly horrifying kills to choose from? Courtney made it look easy when he sat down with Screen Rant to talk about Halloween Ends, the final of the reboot trilogy. Courtney, who has played Myers in all of Green’s Halloween films, has one of, if not the best, look into the character’s motives and felt he could weigh in on what he thought was the best of the long list of kills. Courtney says:

So, first of all, the Bob kill in 1978 is my hands down favorite kill in all the Halloween movies, every single one, even my own kills. That kill, to me, was so original, and so powerful, so to reenact that kill, I was in mission mode, whether I’ve got the mask on or the mask off, once we’re rolling camera, but especially when I have the mask on, I’m not me anymore.

How Courtney Prepared For Michael Myers Kills

Courtney, who started in the industry as a stuntman, has mentioned that he uses breathing techniques when playing the character of Michael Myers. The breathing not only helps him fully become the character of Myers, but it also helps him get out of the role so he does not take the mentality home with him. This allows Courtney to bring the same brutality to the alleged supernatural Michael Myers across all films. Additionally, he has gone to jungles and has worked with shamans and, by extension, their spiritual medicines to reach darker places mentally. He claims the spiritual experience can get him to a point free of judgment, which allows him to play the character to his full potential.

Given how personally Courtney prepared for the role, it is fair to assume that there is truly something to the Bob kill of the original Halloween film. There is something truly eerie about the kill, and Courtney has seemingly done everything he could to bring that energy to his return to Halloween Ends and the entire reboot trilogy. It is sad to see the trilogy that he has been a part of end, but at least he was able to reenact his favorite kill.
