Here’s Every Michael Myers ‘Halloween’ Reference in the ‘Scream’ Franchise

There are no shortage of references to Michael Myers and the Halloween franchise to be found within the Scream franchise, starting with director Wes Craven’s 1996 original masterpiece and continuing through to the new Scream 2022, so we made a list of all (we think) of them from every movie and even the TV series.

Scream writer and franchise creator Kevin Williamson has said the John Carpenter’s 1978 Halloween is his favorite movie of all time and the reason he became a filmmaker, and the original Scream is very much a love letter to the horror genre and to horror fans, but also to Halloween.

Originally presented during our weekly Michael Myers Monday Live show, you can watch our roundup of every Michael Myers/Halloween reference in the Scream franchise below, and let us  know if we missed any. Read our review of Scream 2022 here.

The new Scream is out now on Digital (watch here via Amazon Prime Video), and on 4K Ultra HD, as well as Blu-ray and DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment. In addition, fans can own both the new 2022 movie and the original 1996 hit in a Scream Two-Movie Collection on 4K Ultra HD or Blu-ray.
