It certainly wouldn’t be Halloween without Michael Myers. But, shortly before that whacky William Shatner mask made audiences shiver all across America and a slasher legend was born, it was up to this poster get them in their seats. Back in ‘78, the filmmakers made the clever decision to abandon Myer’s unrecognizable mask for the poster art in exchange for a far more popular visual icon, the jack o’ lantern. When that ultra-sharp blade sits adjacent to the pumpkin head it creates the illusion of movement. The fire burning in the eyes becomes the focal point of the piece and adds a violent expression to a killer’s face, which we never see.
