Shatner's Halloween Mask

Happy Halloween everyone!

Its that time of the year again Trekkies for our cheery eyed spooks to call around the neighbourhood trick or treating. Well assimilate this. Feast your eyes on these creepy masks, Spooky huh? Do you recognise him? The story goes Michael Myer's white legendary face is actually modelled on the death mask of Star Trek's Captain James T. Kirk.

But is it true? Rumour has it on YouTube that this is the real deal. William Shatner remembers buying a Myers mask for Halloween when taking his kids out trick or treating but lets be clears about this. The Michael Myers mask in question is obviously an altered Captain Kirk mask.

Shatman's obviously getting a kick out of reliving this fond halloween experience with his daughter Elizabeth, who joins in on the fun. Mr Shatner's 'death mask' was originally made for an episode of Star Trek which eventually found its way into the classic horror movie Halloween. The fun part is Mr Shatner went trick or treating in his own face mask!

What do you think?

Live Long and Prosper, trekker or treaters

FYI, I just watched a 2 hour "The Making of Halloween" on Biography this Sunday, and the "look" for Michael Myers was down to a couple cheap Halloween masks, including a spooky sad clown mask.

John Carpenter says he wanted a 'blank, no frills' so they went with a William Shatner mask right off the shelf--he says all they did was cut out the eyeholes and spray painted it white.

PS You have a great blog! :)

Thanks ApacheDug, Halloween is surprisingly chilling for such a low budget movie but then the mask, Mike Myers and Jamie Lee Curtis nailed it.

This is the first time ever that I've heard of the "death mask" bit.. which is technically something only made at death, otherwise it's a "life mask"... but before all I ever heard was that it was just simply the badly-done Captain Kirk mask put out by Don Post in 1975.

Its gas to hear William Shatner went tricker treating wearing his own halloween mask.
