Malone was born in 1953 in Lansing, Michigan where, during high school, he played in a Beatles-inspired garage band called The Plagues. The band released several 45 rpm singles on their own label Quarantined Records and on Fenton Records, an independent record label (affiliated with now defunct Great Lakes Studios, in Sparta, MI).

Malone moved to California at age 19 to pursue a career in music. However, after a friend's encouragement, Malone found himself getting involved in film and working a job at Don Post Studios, doing makeup and costume work.

In 1978, Malone designed the now legendary Michael Myers mask for the Halloween movie.

After attending UCLA film school, Malone soon thereafter directed his first film, Scared to Death. After which he directed television (i.e. Tales from the Crypt) and various films.

Malone is considered the world's foremost collector of Forbidden Planet memorabilia.
