Halloween’s characters included a veteran character, Donald Pleasence and hitherto unknown actresses, Jamie Lee Curtis. The low budget limited the number of big players: John Carpenter wanted to have and most of the players were paid very little for his role. A Pleasence was paid the highest amount at 20,000, Curtis received 8,000 and Nick Castle earned 25 a day. The character of Dr. Sam Loomis was offered to Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, both declined the offer because of low wages. The British actor Donald Pleasence, Carpenter’s third choice, accept the role. Pleasance is called “John Carpenter’s great landing.” Pleasence’s daughter saw Assault on Precinct 13 and she likes me, encouraging her father to be a star on Halloween. In an interview, Carpenter admits that “Jamie Lee was not the first choice for Laurie. I had no idea who she was.She was 19 and a program on TV at the time, but I never saw his show on TV. “He originally wanted to Anne Lockhart, daughter of June Lockhart of Lassie (1954 series TV) as Laurie.

After understanding the relationship with actress Jamie Psycho, Janet Leigh, Debra Hill says, “I knew that Jamie Lee Curtis would be great publicity for the film because her mother was in Psycho. They chose another relatively unknown actress, Nancy Kyes (cred in the film as Nancy Loomis), as Laurie’s promiscuous friend Annie Brackett daughter of Haddonfield sheriff Leigh Brackett (Charles Cyphers’s). Kyed had a role in assault on Precinct 13 and their choice prior to signing happened to Wallace as art director of “Halloween.PJSoles Carpenter elected to the role of Lynda Van Der Klok, Laurie other promiscuous friend remembered for his dialogue with “Totally” (total) that many times during the movie. Suns was an actress in Carrie (1976) and less importance on the boy in the plastic bubble (1976). Like the character of Michael Myers mask was for Nick Castle, a good friend of Carpenter while they were at the University of Southern California. After Halloween, Castle continued as director, taking the helm of movies such as The Last Starfighter (1984), The Boy Who Could Fly (1986) Major Payne (1995). The character of Michael Myers is particularly remarkable for its coldness, seen by his white mask. He is a bloodthirsty, cruel and deadpan. The coolness that is given not know other murderers in the world series of horror movies like Freddy Krueger or Jason Voorhees Leatherface, notable for their brutality and their victims in cold blood.The character of Michael Myers will reappear in its various sequels, again offering a variety of deaths, not as bloody and vicious as in other films, but meticulous.
