This Shape Looks Different
New Halloween poster gives us our first look at Michael Myers in the upcoming sequel.
By M.T. Bates
The Boogeyman is back as we get our first teaser poster for the insanely-anticipated Halloween sequel. This poster is simplicity at its best, but I personally think this teaser is trying to tell us something. While I am aware I am about to break down and over-analyze a mask, I can’t help but think I am on to something. First, here's the poster.
Tragic and sympathetic: two words one would not typically attach to a character like Michael Myers, but this poster is telling a story. The lighting and positioning of the mask truly convey the look of someone who is going through a personal tragedy. Examining the eye holes even closer does in fact reveal Michael’s eyes, which is not something we typically see. Are perhaps subtle clues to a different avenue never quite traveled for this storied and iconic slasher? There is something deep going on in this poster and the more I look at it, the more I see it.
I want to believe that the Michael we get in this movie is unlike any Michael we have gotten to date, which is why I want to believe that these are hints to something different. We are 6 months away from the new Halloween and I can’t wait until the marketing for this film starts to ramp up.
Do you see a different Michael in this poster or am I just losing my mind? Sound off below.
