The #FaceTheShapeContest had die-hard Michael Myers stans from across the country submit videos of themselves on TikTok and Instagram explaining why they are the franchise’s biggest fan. They were also asked to include their best horror scream.
Similar to Dr. Loomis, Murtha became obsessed with Myers. At the age of 9, he made Halloween-inspired videos with his friends. As Murtha explains in his submission video, “I watch Halloween on the best days of my life and it gets me through my worst days.”
The Pickerington, Ohio native was flown to Los Angeles after winning the contest, where he was treated to an early screening of the film and later came face to face with Michael Myers on a Hollywood set located on the Universal Studios backlot. He also met HALLOWEEN KILLS stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Judy Greer.

In 2018, David Gordon Green’s Halloween, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis, killed at the box office, earning more than $250 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman.
And the Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’t over yet.
Minutes after Laurie Strode (Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor.
But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster.
The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.
