Halloween just hit 4K today and Nick Castle, who played The Shape (Michael Myers) in the original, had some concerns about John Carpenter’s classic being remastered to 4K, mostly that one thing would be visible in one particular scene.
“I just talked to John [Carpenter] about this and he said he and the cameraman did a viewing of this,” Castle said, in an exclusive interview with Bloody Disgusting. “He was impressed with the sharpness. My question would be there is one scene that Dean [Cundy] had a great idea. Near the end, where Michael Myers is in the shadows, he actually dials up the light very, very slowly so that he starts to appear behind Jamie [Lee Curtis]. It’s right before he tries to either stab her or choke her. And I just wonder if that will be seen too early. That’s I guess my one concern, other than the fact that I’d love to see it in this format.”
Castle also referenced another iconic Michael Myers scene, where he calls out a “Cheat”.
“In the laundry scene where she looks down, if you think about that one, that one is a cheat,” Castle said.
”She looks down, when I’m standing by the laundry being dried outside, and then he cuts back to her still looking” Castle continued. “Then he cuts back to the laundry and he’s gone. So we miss the point where she looks away. That was one of the little cheats he got away within the movie.”
Castle also talked about how there was instant chemistry and flow with the film, and that Myers’ iconic walk came naturally.
“There was no particular direction on how I walked or if I was supposed to float like the panaglides,” Castle said. “Ray Stella was the panaglide operator. Basically, John took a look at the way I walked and went, ‘Oh, that’s fine.’”
