Mickey goes on a rampage with Mrs. Loomis – Billy Loomis’s mother – at Windsor College, the school Sidney Prescott is attending. While Mrs. Loomis’ motives are revenge and retribution, Mickey is just a pure psychopath, driven by the thrill of terrorizing people and, most importantly, the promise of becoming famous.
Mickey (Timothy Olyphant) is definitely a Leo because of his killing motives, which is how you are if you were born between July 23rd and August 22nd. Lions are represented by the lion and, like lions, often behave as if they were the kings and queens of their kingdom. They are dramatic, have a lot of confidence, and love to entertain. They want to stand out and it is this ego that often leads to their downfall.
The same goes for Mickey, who is intelligent but not quite as smart as Mrs. Loomis and is blinded by his desire for fame. Like the killers in the first “Scream,” Mickey is obsessed with horror movies and plans to use this in his defense when the case goes to court. In his mind, he can essentially plead insanity, saying that the violence of the movies and video games made him commit the murders, which would immediately grab media attention. Unfortunately, Mrs. Loomis cheats on him and he ends up dead – but it was an interesting theory while it lasted.
