Warlock is a lot of things. He’s a father (Lance and Billy
Warlock are his sons), he’s a
stuntman (The Relic, Casino, The Abyss, The Dead Pool, Christine, The
Thing, Ghost Story and
many more) and he’s also an actor (Firestarter, Pumkinhead, The
Abyss). But to us horror psychos he will always be remembered as the
dude that played the Shape in Halloween 2. In Arrow’s book of the
dead Warlock was the best Michael. He came across as meaner, scarier
and definitely crueler. Mr. Warlock took a quick break from his hectic
schedule to toss a few words The Arrow’s way. Here they are.
1- What’s your favorite horror movie?
"Creature From the Black
people don't consider this one a horror film but I do. I worked in the
"Thing" remake, Chucky 2 & 3, Pumpkinhead,
Friday pt 5, and they are all good horror films.
It's hard to say besides Creature, which is my favorite film.
I also liked the Body Snatchers and the old Frankenstein films. It's
a tough call. A lot of good ones. I haven't seen any of
the non-union underground (garage) horror films.
2- Michael in part 2 (my opinion) seemed like
the meanest of 'em all. Did you watch the first one before
doing it? What do you think was different about your performance?
I patterned my
performance after the scene where Mike has been stabbed in the eyes,
Jamie is sitting in the doorway, and Mike sits up and turns his head
towards her. Very mechanical. I have no idea which one
of the 5 people who played Michael did that
3- Have you followed the
Halloween flicks after part 2? If so, what's your opinion on
the direction it took with part 5 and 6, mixing Michael with Cults
I have seen them recently but I must admit I haven't studied them as
some fans have.
4- When's the last time you
watched Halloween 2...did it still hold up?
still holds up very well. Maybe a year ago.
5- What's the scariest thing a fan ever did
in regards to you...The Shape?
I was bothered by only
one fan and that's too long a story to go into.
When can we see you again. Any upcoming projects?
released "28 Days" with Sandra Bullock. A stunt driving
sequence. I can't be seen as myself however.
7- During the shoot of part
2, would you sometime wear the mask at home or anything of the
I didn't take possession of the
mask until Debra gave it to me at the end of
shooting. I did chase my fiance around a drive-in movie
theatre dressed as Michael while the film was being shown. But you
know something, not one person paid any
attention to us and she was screaming her head off and I've got
this huge butcher's knife raised in the air as I'm doing this. Oh,
8- What's the worst horror flick
you've ever seen? (why doesn’t
anybody want to answer this question!!!)
really want to answer that. It might hurt someone's feelings.
