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.

great behind the scenes
13 July 2002 | by (new york) – See all my reviews

this was a great behind the scenes, while i did enjoy the making of Halloween 4 and 5, they were too short.

Halloween Unmasked 2000 was about 30min and give great details on the making of the movie, you learn alot from watching it.

interviews from star Jamie Lee Curtis, P.J. Soles, and Nick Castle who played Michael Myers. In one part Brian Andrews talks about the movie he played Tommy Doyle but he was only there for like a minute.

interviews with Editor and Production designer Tommy Lee Wallace who would go on to write and direct Halloween 3.

Producer Irwin Yablans who came up with the story for Halloween talks about the movie as well does Moustapha Akkad.

Cinematographer Dean Cundey also is in the behind the scenes.

and of course co-writer and producer Debra Hill and Co-writer/Director John Carpenter also appear and give great info on Halloween.

Sadly like Halloween 4 and 5 behind the scenes nothing with Donald Pleasence though his name is brought up a few times.

Halloween Unmasked can be found on the Halloween DVD as an extra.

if you love Halloween as much as me you will love Halloween Unmasked.

oh yeah and the narrator is Dee Snider of the band Twisted Sister.
