One of the most notorious killers in the horror movie genre made a surprise appearance at a a birthday party.
The four-year-old's reaction caused the video to go viral and has inspired national headlines.
The video has already reached over 3 million views on Tiktok in just 24 hours. The magical moment was caught on camera by four-year-old Aria Alvarado's mother, Rose.
"My daughter is in love with Michael Myers lmao. He came to her birthday party, she heard the Halloween theme song and started looking for him," wrote her mother on Twitter.
The video shows a person dressed as Michael Myers slowly emerge from across the parking lot. The second Aria notices him, she starts running towards him shouting "Michael Myers, I love you!" and jumps into his arms.
Rose told TODAY she and her husband planned the Halloween-themed birthday party after discovering their daughter's love for scary movies.
“She’s been loving Halloween ever since she first watched The Nightmare Before Christmas,” Alvarado says. “She loves many spooky movies including Frankenweenie, Coraline, Corpse Bride, and especially Halloween with Michael Myers.”
When going viral there's always the possibility of reaching an audience who is less amused by the content.
While the feedback has been mostly positive, there have been some negative comments questioning if Aria's interest in scary movies is appropriate for her age.
“We believe it’s important to let her be her,” she adds. “It’s totally innocent and she’s having fun and she still gets scared watching scary movies. If she stops getting scared, then we may want to revisit this.”
