An Unlucky “Halloween” Superfan Faces The Shape In New Video

Saturday, October 16, 2021 | News

The recent #FaceTheShapeContest has concluded and crowned its lucky winner! Superfan Mark Murtha was chosen from fans across the country after submitting his best horror scream on social media and explaining why he stans Michael Myers.

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.

See how his meeting with The Shape unfolded below! HALLOWEEN KILLS is in theaters now and streaming only on Peacock.
