With all of the "Halloween II" hubbub on the blog this week, I feel compelled to focus today's eBay Prop-Watch on the franchise in some way. There are no actual props up for auction from the upcoming movie -- or any of the other movies -- but this is a pretty cool item nonetheless. You know, if you're into things that look terrifying.
Michael Myers, the mask-wearing antagonist of the "Halloween" series, is a scary dude. He's smarter than the ruthless killing machine that is Jason Voorhees of the "Friday the 13th" movies. Myers isn't after rowdy teens; his motives are specific, and the victims his brutal killings are carefully selected. You don't want to get in his way of course, but if you're a pot-smoking, beer-drinking teen who has no prior history with Myers, you're probably going to be safe. Probably. With today's prop, you could certainly convince your friends otherwise though!
What we have here is a prop replica of Myers' Rob Zombie-era "Halloween" mask. It's a gruesome sight, no question, and it probably is meant to serve as a display piece despite it being advertised as a "mask." The seller has a bit of a spotty history on eBay, though his most recent buyers have all had positive feedback. Still, I would use caution if you're considering purchasing such an expensive ($249 Buy It Now price) item.
