HALLOWEEN: UNMASKED 2000 attempts to unravel the mystery behind one of the most successful horror series of all time: HALLOWEEN. Dee Snider narrates this mini-documentary that features exclusive interviews with the cast and crew of the original movie, as well as some conversations with those involved in the sequels. A wide range of topics is discussed, from conception to to filming to distribution, all tempered with some light-hearted humor by the men (and women) behind the mask.Written by

John Carpenter, Debra Hill, Tommy Lee Wallace, Dean Cundy, P.J. Soles, Jamie Lee Curtis, Nick Castle, Irwin Yablans and Moustapha Akkad are all interviewed for this thirty-minute documentary that takes a look at the making of HALLOWEEN. It's important not to be too hard on this documentary because since it was made there have been a couple others that contain even more details. The longer options are certainly the way to go but at the same time this here was a well-produced film for its time and there's no question that these interviews were terrific especially when you first saw them. Even though the running time is rather short there's a lot of great details on here about the production, the casting and of course the reaction to the movie once it was released. If you're a fan of HALLOWEEN then this is still worth watching.
