Biography

Director William Malone first became interested in filmmaking as a young teen fascinated with horror movies. He began making his own horror films with an 8mm camera when he was just 14 years old and around the same time also began making scary Halloween masks. When he was 19, he moved to Los Angeles with the aim of being a rock musician but before long, that aspiration was abandoned when he returned to mask making, as well as makeup and costume design. He went on to create the mask used for the killer Michael Myers, in the classic 1978 horror film "Halloween." That same year, he made his acting debut with an uncredited role playing George Harrison, from The Beatles, in the romantic comedy "I Wanna Hold Your Hand." In 1981, he made his directorial debut on the low-budget sci-fi horror "Scared to Death," on which he also earned a co-writing credit. His follow-up in 1985 was another sci-fi horror, entitled "Creature." He worked in television for the first time in 1989, on the anthology horror series "Freddy's Nightmare," based on the horror film "Nightmare on Elm Street." He went on to work in television for the next several years, directing shows like "Dark Justice," "Tales from the Crypt," and "Sleepwalkers," before directing his next film, a 1999 remake of the 1959 horror film, "House on Haunted Hill." He later went on to work on the films "FeardotCom" in 2002, and "Parasomnia" in 2008.
