The Original Michael Myers Just Offered His Review Of The New 'Halloween' Film—And He's Not Wrong 😂

By Dennis Matthew Livesey

In 1978, Nick Castle was an aspiring director who just wanted to hang out with a friend and spend some time on a movie set, so he showed up to watch his former USC film school classmate John Carpenter direct his future classic Halloween.

Castle, who hoped to direct one day himself, was looking to "demystify the directing experience,"  but when Carpenter suggested he put on the mask and walk around, Castle agreed and inadvertently became a horror movie icon. 

A lot has changed in the 40 years since Castle's role as the original Michael Myers in 1978's Halloween, but as the 2018 premiere approaches, according to Castle, some things have stayed exactly the same. 

In the new sequel, “a British documentary crew comes to the States to visit Michael in prison for a retrospective of the maniac’s night of terror — but their project becomes way more interesting when Myers escapes custody, retrieves his signature mask and seeks revenge on Laurie."

Along with Castle, the new film also brings back Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode for the fifth time, as well as Carpenter who serves as an executive producer and composer. 

Castle's return to his 40-year-old role will only be for a cameo, with James Jude Courtney behind the mask for most of the film, but Castle was heavily involved in the production, which has received such a positive critical reception that Blumhouse has said another sequel is already in the works
