Faerch was just 11 years old during the filming of “Halloween,” and delivered a performance that left Michael both menacing and incredibly sweet. Faerch informs the audience that Michael Myers was once a human being who, albeit under very specific circumstances, became a serial killer. Carpenter’s semi-supernatural treatment of the character is gone in the Zombie version. In 2007, the world was more interested in analysis, origin stories, and factual explanations for iconic characters. Faerch is very adept at giving Michael a human face.
Ironically, Faerch was too young to see a movie like “Halloween” in theaters. In a 2007 video interview with MoviewebFaerch even revealed that his mother wouldn’t let him read the entire script. He was only allowed to read his own scenes, and was not allowed to work with Mane to make sure the child Michael and the adult Michael were a good fit. Mane only revealed that he studied Faerch before filming his own scenes, but their meeting was just a greeting. “I just read my part,” Faerch said. “And then my mother read it and said, ‘You’re not going to read it. ” his scene.
The young actor was also banned from attending the film’s premiere. “I will be kept away. Even from the premiere,” he said. “I’ll watch maybe the first 10 or 15 minutes without the killing. It’s still kind of horror, but there’s no killing. Then just go out and do something else.” Faerch won’t be allowed to watch R-rated “Halloween” without a guardian until 2013.
