ANYWAY I think the performances by the actors in this short where very good and believable and also captured the characters personalities well.
As Chris stated in a Q & A the creepy thing about the Michael Myers character is how he was normal and then suddenly snapped and the way the character is portrayed in this short keeps to that instead of trying to come up with some rational motive and humanizing the characters madness.
The sense of isolation in the scene where a young Michael sees the shape really adds to the horror and quite quickly builds the tension in the movie exactly like a good horror movie should.
The part which I think was my favourite was when Michael takes off the shapes mask only to find himself wearing it, I thought it was such a cool scene and it almost seems like a nod to the Luke Skywalker Darth Vader scene on dagobah in the empire strikes back.
Kudos to the costume department and location scout on this movie all the costumes and locations looked one hundred percent true to John Carpenters original.
As a prequel I loved the idea of having the imaginary shape, I find it was the perfect way to hint at whats to come in the next movie.
To be honest when I first heard about this short getting made I was baffled at how Halloween could have a prequel as it already begins with Michael as a child and his first murder.So I would like to praise Chris for his creativity on the script idea.
Overall this is a very well made short especially considering the budget! It has good acting, a creative script and it is a prequel that unlike most fan films,doesn't look cheap, feels at home with and doesn't look out of place with the John Carpenter Classic and the Halloween franchise.
