Michael Myers is one of the creepiest horror movie characters of all time. And he owes his terrifying appearance in particular to his white mask that he never takes off. But what does it look like without? Check out a behind-the-scenes photo from “Halloween Kills” to find out.
Halloween Kills is aptly named
Three years later Halloween, the bestial and ruthless killer Michael Myers returns in Halloween kills. Still directed by David Gordon Green, the film takes place the same evening as the previous one. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), daughter (Judy Greer) and granddaughter (Andi Matichak) believe they’ve managed to beat the boogeyman. Indeed, after a fierce fight, Laurie managed to trap Michael in the basement of the house, and set it on fire. Unfortunately for her, Myers seems immortal as he manages to emerge alive from the flames, and resume his morbid journey.
Never in the whole saga Halloween, Michael Myers did not appear so brutal. An outburst of violence and hemoglobins, like the sequence with the firefighters (which did not please everyone).
Michael drops the mask
Michael Myers’ terrifying bestiality comes in part from his white mask, which he never takes off. Or almost. We remember that at the beginning ofHalloween, when he was incarcerated, he appeared with his face uncovered. But to preserve his dangerous aura, David Gordon Green never filmed him from the front. In Halloween kills, at the end of the film, Karen (Judy Greer) manages to take him away for a few minutes, but once again, it is very difficult to see his face. The camera films it from a distance, or in very low light. We can still guess his face damaged by the flames.
So what does Michael really look like without his mask? A few days ago musician Zach Myers shared pictures taken on the set with the actor who plays Myers: James Jude Courtney. And he appears with his face uncovered. We notice that the entire left part of his face, as well as his hands, have been burned, which gives him an even more terrifying look.
