Behind the Monster – Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes)


Michael Berryman (born September 4, 1948) is an American actor, and most of all a horror icon. Berryman has such a distinctive appearance due to a genetic condition at birth (Hypohidrotic Ectodermal) that prevents him from growing hair, fingernails, sweat glands, or teeth.


Whereas some people might call his condition a handicap, Berryman has turned his physical appearance into a career portraying mutant bikers, evil undertakers, monsters and other and all sorts of evil characters such as “Pluto” in Wes Craven’s seminal film, The Hills Have Eyes (1977) and the 1985 sequel The Hills Have Eyes Part II. He has appeared in several other horror movies and TV series (X-Files).
