15 Movie Monsters And What They Look Like Without Masks Or Makeup

15. Nick Castle – Michael Myers From Halloween

Even though he is a fairly successful director (The Last Starfighter & Major Payne), Nick Castle is best known for playing the man behind the mask in Halloween. Castle is a long-time friend of John Carpenter, the two even co-wrote Escape from New York together, so when Carpenter needed someone to play the masked villain, Michael Myers, Castle agreed to take the part. Now these two men, Castle and Carpenter, were old college buddies and all, plus the film’s budget was miniscule, especially compared to today’s standards, but Castle’s pay of $25 per day is bordering on slave labor. The two had some laughs on set though. When Castle asked Carpenter for Michael Myers motivation in a certain scene, Carpenter told him, just walk from one set marker to another and don’t think. In hindsight, maybe $25 per day wasn’t all that bad.
