Michael T Originals has teamed-up with TNT Media for this short film project that recreates five iconic scenes from John Carpenter’s 1978 horror film, with great care being taken to be as faithful to the original as possible. Local look-alike actors were cast, costumes were duplicated, and locations were chosen that allowed the filmmakers to capture the overall aesthetic of Carpenter’s classic.
It should be noted that this production had virtually no budget, and was a labor of love for all involved. As film makers, Michael T. Lombardi and Nils Toledo Jr. have been strongly influenced by the work of John Carpenter and wanted to do something fun to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his horror classic.
Over the years, we have watched as countless "Halloween" fans have made their own fan films, but we felt it would be more of a challenge to see how close we could come to recreating four iconic scenes shot-for-shot, in addition to putting our own spin on a fifth scene, which we hope "Halloween" fans will enjoy!
The cast includes Natalie Osborne as Laurie Strode, Paul Noonan as Sheriff Leigh Brackett, Emily Santarsiero as Annie Brackett, Devin Murphy as Lindsey Wallace, Eli Wald as Tommy Doyle, and Michael T. Lombardi as The Shape. Directed by Michael T. Lombardi & Nils Toledo Jr. Director of Photography is Nils Toledo Jr. Edited by Terese N. Toledo. Executive Producer is Michael T. Lombardi.
