HALLOWEEN MOVIE TRIVIA: How low was their budget to make the original HALLOWEEN (part 1)?

Celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the 1978 classic, “John Carpenter’s Halloween,” with a series of HALLOWEEN films on the big screen. The celebration begins in October with the nationwide release of “John Carpenter’s Halloween” and continues through the month with “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers” and “Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers” in select theaters. Visit www.HalloweenOnScreen.com for theaters and ticketing.

 

ANSWER: Their budget was so low, the prop department had to use the least expensive mask they could find in the costume store: a William Shatner Star Trek mask. They spray-painted the face white, teased out the hair, and reshaped the eye holes – And Michael Myers was born.
