Original Michael Myers Mask from Halloween Unearthed

Original Michael Myers Mask from Halloween Unearthed
John Carpenter's original Halloween is generally considered to be one of the greatest horror movies ever made. And with good reason. It introduced the world to Michael Myers, one of the most iconic figures not only in horror, but in the whole of cinema. Sadly, the original Michael Myers mask has been missing and thought to be long gone for more than a decade. Until now. That's right, horror fans. The original Michael Myers Halloween mask has been unearthed and a new picture of it in its current state has arrived online.

The mask, which was used in Halloween and Halloween II by actor Dick Warlock on screen, has been in the possession of a man who runs haunted attractions. For the last 14 years, a man by the name of Mark Roberts has owned not only the original mask, but the boots and scalpel Michael Myers used on screen as well.

Theater Review: ‘New Country’ is Original, Exuberant & Poignant

Chicago – The Country Music industry has become as huge as any category of music entertainment. So Mark Roberts, the creator of the TV sitcom “Mike & Molly,” has fashioned a boisterous new play about the machinations of that genre of music industry, and gave it the plaintive title of “New Country.”

Play Rating: 4.5/5.0

New Country” is making its Midwest premiere after a triumphant Off Broadway run in New York City. It involves a two-faced but wildly popular country singer on the eve of his wedding in Nashville. Roberts has combined the “cletus” element of the genre, through his self-portrayed character Uncle Jim, and the business side through a pair of duplicitous handlers. What follows is a focused and (at times) emotional statement on the industry of entertainment, especially regarding who wins and who is left behind. What Roberts never forgets is his funny bone, the play is freaking hilarious, and hits

Mark Roberts Reflects on TV Industry Experiences: 'There Are Children There That Are Broken'

"If it's not on the screen, it never happened," say the characters in Enter at Forest Lawn, Mark Roberts' Off-Broadway play that offers a partially absurd, partially accurate view of what happens inside the executive offices of the television industry. "That's actually something I had heard somebody say! I've heard some of it, and I've heard a lot worse," Roberts — former Two and a Half Men head writer, The Big Bang Theory executive consultant and creator of Mike and Molly — tells The Hollywood Reporter of the lines.

25 most outrageous 'This Morning' moments: Laughter, tears and nudity

Happy 25th birthday to This Morning, which celebrates its silver anniversary today (October 3).

The famous ITV daytime show's current hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were joined by original hosts Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan for a special episode at This Morning's first home in Liverpool's Albert Docks.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, here's Digital Spy's pick of This Morning's most memorable moments.

1. Booyakasha!

Who could forget Richard Madeley's misjudged and horrendously toe-curling Ali G impersonation? He appeared on our screens completely in character, right down to the drawn-on goatee, while an awkward Judy Finnegan visibly cringed and attempted to plough on with the show.

2. Two Vaginas Lady

Well done Holly Willoughby, who was able to keep a straight face while explaining that poor Hazel Jones has a medical condition which means she has two vaginas. The discussion spanned double periods, the difficulty of inserting tampons and some very graphic camera shots.

TV review: Hugh's Fish Fight: Save Our Seas; Streak! The Man Who Can't Keep His Clothes On; Friday Night, Saturday Morning

I know Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall means well, but this scallop-dredging voyage is really dull

Two years ago Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall made a programme about the insanity of EU fishing regulations that insisted any undersized fish should be chucked back into the sea to rot rather than served on a plate. And a remarkably successful campaign it turned out to be, with the EU now reconsidering this area of fisheries policy. Buoyed by this, and kitted out in a bit-too-try-hard hippy necklace along with a much more sensible haircut, he is back with a second dose of Hugh's Fish Fight: Save Our Seas (Channel 4) in which his new target is scallop dredging.

Off he went diving in a small patch of sea off the coast of the Isle of Man that had been designated a marine reserve for some 20 years. This being the Irish Sea, the water was extremely murky but
