Michael Myers Wore a William Shatner Mask in Halloween
This is an oldie but a goodie. As the budget was so tight while filming Halloween, John Carpenter and his crew couldn’t afford to splash out on expensive props. This meant the team had to get creative. Tommy Lee Wallace, who filled the roles of production designer, art director, location scout, and co-editor, was in charge of creating the mask for killer Michael Myers. To save time and money, he picked up a $1.98 mask of Captain Kirk from a shop on Hollywood Boulevard. The mask was based on the face of William Shatner. Shatner was playing Kirk at that time on Star Trek. Wallace widened the eye holes and spray-painted the mask white. This resulted in one of the scariest masks in horror history.
