Michael Myers has been terrorizing citizens of the Midwest and West Coast and scaring audiences for 45 years, almost to the day now. He’s been featured in 12 films, video games, and comic book series and is alongside Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, and Jason Vorhees as a staple of the slasher film.
Being simply known as The Shape in the script, Michael’s history has been written–and rewritten–since the first Halloween film back in 1978. Some films humanized him, some made him less of a man and more of a demonic force of nature. Throughout the years he’s simply known by his pale face (a Willam Shatner Captain Kirk mask from Star Trek), his red hair, and his knife that has more than likely already taken a victim by the time you see him.
So let’s take a quick look at the details of Michael and his macabre mask.
