Michael Myers Face Reveal: Is He Dead or Alive?
Michael Myers is one of the most well-known villains in both horror movies and movies in general. He is best known for his strange mask, which he never takes off. However, Michael Myers has been unmasked a few times in the Halloween movies, and each time he looked very different.
Halloween is one of the most popular horror franchises, and even though it has had different retcons over the years, the most recent one being a reboot trilogy, it is still very popular, and Michael Myers’ reign of terror in Haddonfield, Illinois always finds a way to go on.
The Halloween Franchise
John Carpenter’s 1978 movie Halloween was the first in the Halloween series. It was in this movie that Michael Myers was introduced to the public. Michael Myers was only six years old when he killed his older sister, Judith, on Halloween night in 1963.
He was sent to Smith’s Grove Sanitarium, where Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence) took care of him and he never spoke again. After 15 years, Michael got away and went back to Haddonfield. On Halloween night, he started following Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her friends.
Laurie was the only person to survive Michael’s killing spree, and she became the main “final girl” of the franchise, even though later retcons replaced her with her own daughter, Jamie Lloyd (Danielle Harris), a group of contestants on a reality show, and a different version of her in Rob Zombie’s Halloween remakes.
Michael Myers in Halloween (1978)
John Carpenter’s Halloween was the first time people saw Michael Myers without his mask. Michael Myers went outside while still wearing his clown mask after killing his sister in 1963. The police took the mask off. After 15 years, Michael went back to Haddonfield and bought the mask he is now known for.
He then went after Laurie Strode and her friends, killing everyone except Laurie. At the end of Halloween, Laurie fights Michael and takes off his mask after stabbing him in the eye with a coat hanger and in the chest with his own knife.
Even though Nick Castle played Michael Myers the whole time in Halloween, Tony Moran played him when he took off his mask, and his left eye is clearly hurt to keep the story going. Michael quickly puts on the mask again, and Loomis arrives just in time to shoot him and throw him off the balcony.

Michael Myers in Halloween II (2009)
Rob Zombie’s take on Halloween continued with Halloween II, which came out two years later and showed Michael Myers as an adult. Like he did with the first movie, Zombie took the basic idea of Halloween II and made big changes and additions to it, especially when it came to Laurie (Scout Taylor-Compton) and how she dealt with what happened after her first encounter with Michael.
Just like in the original Halloween II, Zombie’s remake showed that Laurie is Michael’s youngest sister, which made Michael continue to haunt her. Michael took Laurie to a shed that had been abandoned. Loomis came and tried to talk to Michael, but it didn’t work. Michael and Loomis started fighting, and right before Michael stabbed his old doctor to death, he took off the mask.
Tyler Mane played Michael Myers in Zombie’s Halloween II. He had long hair, a long beard, and a moustache. Unlike the other versions of Michael without his mask, this one didn’t have any wounds or scars on his face.
Halloween Kills is the second movie in the Halloween reboot trilogy. It picks up right where the first movie left off. Michael Myers lived through the fire and explosion at Laurie’s house, and he kept killing people after that. Lonnie (Robert Longstreet), Cameron (Dylan Arnold), and Allyson (Andi Matichak) are attacked when they go to Michael’s house in the third act of Halloween Kills.
Michael is about to kill Allyson when Karen, played by Judy Greer, comes in, stabs him with a pitchfork, and takes off his mask so he will follow her outside, where a mob is waiting. Once again, Michael’s face is hard to see because he is in the shadows, out of focus, and we can only see his hurt eye.
As Halloween Kills takes place right after the end of Halloween 2018, Michael Myers is played by the same actor, Nick Castle. He has very short, white hair and a big scar across his left eye, just like in the first movie.
