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.

Fans will find this documentary lacking in insight
10 March 2005 | by (The Mitten State, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw a stripped-down version of this mini-documentary (simply titled "HALLOWEEN: UNMASKED"--minus the "2000" part) on the second tape of my nifty "20th Anniversary Collector's Edition" two-tape set from Anchor Bay. It basically consists of Dee Snider (of Twisted Sister fame) narrating a brief history of the 1978 horror classic HALLOWEEN, followed by interviews with Jamie Lee Curtis, Moustapha Akkad, Nick Castle, and Debra Hill. Oddly enough, John Carpenter--nor any of the other cast and crew, for that matter--was not featured in the version I saw.

The interviewees are likable and fun to listen to, and it's clear that they really do have a genuine fondness for this cult classic, but they don't reveal anything that the die-hard Michael Myers fans don't already know. Nick Castle's segments are probably the most entertaining, especially when you consider that this laid-back, goofy-looking guy is the same man who horrified millions as Michael Myers in the original HALLOWEEN film.

As a whole, though, this documentary is pretty standard "DVD extra" fare. It isn't really engaging enough to pique the interest of the average viewer, and it isn't nearly insightful enough to satisfy the die-hard HALLOWEEN fanatics. Actually, I found the deleted scenes and the trailers (also featured on tape 2) to be much more interesting and entertaining.
