Why is Michael Myers called ”The Shape”?

HERE THE ANSWERS 👇

  • The Shape is what John Carpenter referred to Michael Myers as in the script. Throughout the movie you only see the outline of Michael lurking in the shadows, non descript and very much a “shape”.

    In the actual script, the first usage of “the shape” is used to describe the mask Myers wears…

    “Darkness, with a small shape in the center of the screen.

               As MAIN TITLES CONTINUE OVER, CAMERA SLOWLY MOVES IN on 
    
               the shape.
    
               We get closer and closer until we see that the shape is a 
    
               Halloween mask. It is a large, full-head platex rubber 
    
               mask, not a monster or ghoul, but the pale, neutral features 
    
               of a man weirdly distorted by the rubber. ."

    Subsequently, the mask (originally designed by Don Post (later becomming Don Post Studios)) was referred to as “The Shape”

  • I don’t know for sure, but I would guess it is because he isn’t really a human anymore. He is so devoid of feeling that is just a shadow, or “shape” of a human.
