Terror Trivia Tidbit

Due to its shoestring budget, the prop department on "Halloween" (1978) had to use the cheapest mask that they could find in the costume store: a Captain Kirk (William Shatner) mask. They later spray-painted the face white, teased out the hair, and reshaped the eye holes.

  1. I gotta admit, there's a 6'2" dude that comes to my door every Halloween. Not a single candy in his pillowcase. He has the exact mask/jumpsuit (dirty even) and nasty knife and he says nothing. He looks more like Michael than Michael. Creeps me out every year. I know it's not a kid on steroids, so it's some adult doing it. Only thing is, I seem to be the only house he goes to. I actually look forward to him visiting just for the chills.
