Awesome Behind The Scenes Photos from Horror Movies (7)

Nick Castle clearly enjoyed Dr Pepper soda. As does Michael Myers clearly. It’s a bit like Kel;¬†“Who loves Dr Pepper? Michael loves Dr Pepper”. Besides this photo being generally awesome it also shows just how well Nick Castle’s face fitted the mask. Halloween 2 would feature the exact same mask from Halloween yet Michael would appear distinctly different. The reason? A different actor, with a different shaped face, beneath the mask. Quite simply, Nick Castle IS the quintessential Michael Myers. Dr Pepper or no Dr Pepper.

Yet the fascination is not purely aesthetic (but it is very bloody cool). This image taken on during the filming of Halloween (1978) is a strange precursor to the franchise’s history. With no knowledge of the movie’s impending (huge) success, this photo precedes the retrospective history that Laurie and Michael are brother and sister, locked in a never ending cinematic sibling rivalry. At the time this was simply Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle (the man behind the mask) messing around between takes. But in retrospect, isn’t it just amazingly poetic?
