Jefferson Hall Interview
Q: Who are your characters, and what is their entrance into the world of Halloween?
Jefferson Hall: We are probably the closest thing to the audience, as far as characters are concerned, because we are coming in as people who have followed the case (of Michael Myers) almost since childhood. So we talk about what happened, and we want to find out about what happened, and who Michael is, and who Laurie Strode is. We are journalists.
Q: So your characters came over just to research this Michael Myers phenomena. Are you looking not just at the case but at the lore, and how kids are looking at it today?
Jefferson Hall: We are looking at the whole idea of incarceration of mentally ill people, and juxtaposing that to real life serial killers. It’s difficult to mention all of that stuff in the film. But in doing our own research we looked at Ed Kemper, who is this huge guy who walked around breaking people’s necks and decapitating people.
Jefferson Hall: Or Herb Mullin who went from door to door just stabbing people because of the voices in his head. There are so many serial killers from that time, the 1970s and 1980s, when it was post-Vietnam and pre-FBI analysis. Jeffery Dahmer started killing in 1978 as well, the same year Carpenter’s Halloween came out, so it’s quite interesting.
Q: In that this film ignores any sequels to the original, it also lowers Myers’ onscreen body count considerably. Given that, do your characters view Myers as being lower on the serial killer totem pole?
Jefferson Hall: Yeah, Myers is no John Wayne Gacy.
Q: Tell us about working with the Director, David Gordon Green.
Jefferson Hall: We met with him and spoke on Skype a lot, and talked a lot about how this story was situated in the real world, and I talked a lot about America and the state it is in, and in how differently the English view it: gun crime and medication and all of those things add up to a very different universe to investigate than the one in which our characters come from.
Q: Your characters, from what I understand, have come into possession of Myer’s mask, and when you display it, it triggers him.
Jefferson Hall: Yes. There are also some other influences into the reactivation of Myers into a maniac, and I think that we have the mask is a huge provocation. He wants his face back, as you would.
Q: Because that is his personality? Is that who he is?
Jefferson Hall: Well, I think, yeah. Speaking psychologically, he can’t kill without it. He has to hide his face. Ed Kemper (for one) had these weird glasses that he wore, and he couldn’t kill anyone without wearing them.
Q: So your characters visit Michael Myers in an insane asylum and sneaks his mask in to show him?
Jefferson Hall: : Yeah, but you won’t see his face. And it was an incredible set. It was a military institution, and it had this huge courtyard surrounded by buildings, with barbed wire around the top and dudes with machine guns. The courtyard was a huge checkerboard, red and white.
Jefferson Hall: In the middle, we got your man (Michael) and around him were a whole bunch of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest nutcases chained to bits of concrete, and they all start losing their shit, while Myers just sits there, still. And we start asking him rote questions while his back is to us and he starts to rise, and everyone starts to scream.
So we filmed the courtyard scene at that location, and then we went to an actual prison to film others, and the inmates were lined up watching us film from the other side of a chain-link fence.
Q: How did the role come to each of you?
Jefferson Hall: I sent in a tape from London, and when I got a call back and Skyped with David, he said, ‘It’d be cool if you could come down to South Carolina and just play with us,’ and I’m on Skype trying to look cool, saying, ‘Yeah, maybe. Let me see what’s going on.’ And I’m like the biggest McBride fan, so I was just stoked.
Q: David has said today that they are shooting the violence in an effort to allow it to be edited to deliver two separate results, one gory and one rather bloodless.
Jefferson Hall: We did see a really incredible and intricate piece of prosthetic work that the guys did that was really not that pleasant to look at. But I don’t think they hardly shot any of it. It was (purposefully) a little out of focus and a little out of frame, and all you saw was the blood running down.
Q: How many days are you shooting?
Jefferson Hall: I believe eight or nine in total.
Q: Do you have long monologues or is it snappy and back and forth?
Jefferson Hall: We are pretty close to the audience, and so we have exposition for those who have never seen the (original) film. So we are the guys that are saying, ‘He did this. This happened. We are looking for him.’ So we provide the background for the audience. As an actor, you never want to do any exposition, but here I think it’s written quite gracefully and well down.
