The inaugural Haunted Screams Expo debuted Sept. 21-22, 2019 in Hampton, Virginia, with special guests including Tyler Mane, who participated in a fun Q&A where he revealed his favorite Michael Myers kill scene, his favorite Halloween candy, and much more.
The Haunted Screams Expo was hosted and the Q&As moderated by Laitram Tsol, an original horror character on the convention circuit, and featured a haunted house on site, charity raffle, assorted vendors, a makeup effects contest (see highlights here), costume contests for kids and adults on both days. You can see our general cosplay and vendor in the photo gallery here.
During the Q&A, Tyler Mane reveals that his favorite kill scene as Myers is from Halloween II (2009) and involves a certain Oscar winner. “So technically, I’m the only serial killer to kill an Oscar winner,” he said. “I’ll take that.”
When asked if he would ever want to play Michael Myers again, he said only if Rob Zombie was directing him again, as it would be most important for him to top what they have done in the 2007 remake and its 2009 sequel.
“If I was going to portray Michael Myers again,” he said, “I would have to take him to the next level, for me personally, because I just don’t want to do the same thing or I don’t want to do something lesser. And taking Rob’s stuff to the next level, I don’t know what I’d have to do to make it more vicious and more brutal, so never say never, but I don’t think I would do it again unless Rob was doing it”.
Mane also revealed his favorite Halloween candy, when asked by HDN’s own Sue Artz, and I guarantee that you can’t guess what his answer was.
Off the subject of the Halloween films, Mane teased that he has just finished a new Netflix series that he is very excited about, which he says horror fans are going love. He even said the character he plays in this new project is one of his favorite roles ever. “What I’m doing for that,” he said, “is probably the most physical, toughest stuff I’ve done, but it is going to look so cool when it comes out. You guys are going to love it.
