I am a fan of Sean Hartter’s design blog, it is always nice to catch up on all his pop culture revamps. I particularly liked the design of the “The Rabbit in Red Lounge” matches which is an obscure reference to a pack of matches found on the body of a victim soon after Michael Meyers escaped the asylum.
Turns out the Halloween wikia has a nice bit of backstory on this lounge. I had no idea that’s where Michael’s mother Deborah danced! The plot thickens…
Located one block east of Route 1 in Haddonfield, the Rabbit Red Lounge was an exotic dance club. Deborah Myers worked here as a dancer in the years leading up to her death. In the years following her death, the lounge gained a small measure of notoriety, mostly because Deborah was the mother of Michael Myers, the so-called “Butcher of Haddonfield”. Michael, as an adult, came to the place and brutually killed The owner and a stripper, just when they were about to have sex.
I was just fired up I recognized the matches when I saw the design on Hartter’s blog. You learn something new about Halloween everyday!
