Did this just really happen?! Was that a Michael Myers cameo? Real quick for some of our younger readers: Michael Myers is the masked murderer in the “Halloween” anthology of horror movies. (Quick trivia knowledge–the mask Michael Myers wears was based on William Shatner/Captain Kirk’s [“Star Trek”] face). I digress, back to “American Horror Story”. AHS: Cult has recently released a series of posters for fans to mull over/obsess over until the new season starts. One of these posters will make you do a double take and cause fans to speculate if the iconic Michael Myers will appear in “Cult”. Are fans just overreaching thinking it is Michael Myers? Well, maybe not.
Clue #1: Season 7 of AHS did a little filming in the neighborhood of the original 1978 “Halloween” movie. Is AHS trying to tie in classic American horror into “Cult”?
Clue #2: A poster released by AHS pictures Alison Pill’s character–Ivy Mayfair-Richards. In the background of the poster, you see a silhouette of a person standing behind a curtain in what is suspected to be a slaughterhouse. The silhouette does bear a striking resemblance to Michael Myers. It would also fall in line with the “Halloween” classic plot of Michael Myers lurking in the shadows near a “young, scared, and helpless victim”.
Clue #3: The title of this season of “American Horror Story”–Cult. In “Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers”, it was revealed a cult was pulling Michael’s strings.
While these clues give hard evidence of Michael Myers himself starring in AHS: Cult, it does not rule out that another character does not take on his characteristics or even his M.O. as a way for AHS to pay homage to the American horror story classics.
What do you think? Do you think Michael Myers will appear in some way this season of AHS? Or do you think people are reaching too far with the clues? Let us know what you think by leaving us a comment!
