Storyline

HALLOWEEN: UNMASKED 2000 attempts to unravel the mystery behind one of the most successful horror series of all time: HALLOWEEN. Dee Snider narrates this mini-documentary that features exclusive interviews with the cast and crew of the original movie, as well as some conversations with those involved in the sequels. A wide range of topics is discussed, from conception to to filming to distribution, all tempered with some light-hearted humor by the men (and women) behind the mask.

Unmasked?...destroyed more like!
13 December 2003 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

For close to a quarter of a century I have held HALLOWEEN dear to my heart. A shining beacon of innovation in the horror genre. Recently acquiring a dvd of HALLOWEEN, I ignored my better judgment and watched HALLOWEEN UNMASKED 2000, included under "extras'.....BIG mistake!

John Carpenter looked like a parody of himself...the "Mae West" of the director's chair! I don't think he uttered a single word had the slightest relevance to anything. I don't WANT to remember John Carpenter as a 140 year old caricature of himself....now I'm stuck with the image. Debra Hill struck me as an affable but total moron. How, pray tell, does it further the mystique of HALLOWEEN to know that she played Michael Myers at various stages? Speaking of which...... Nick Castle? Never again can I watch HALLOWEEN without seeing that goofball under his latex mask. And Moustapha Akaad? he should be selling souvenirs in the bazaar in Cairo.

Thanks guys...you totally wrecked a piece of magic!
