Inside Look at ‘Halloween’

Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode —the role that cemented her legacy as the original scream queen in ‘Halloween‘.

It’s been a long time since the first film slashed its way into theaters in 1978, and, although a number of sequels have come out in between, this latest film throws all of them out the window to reset the story from the original’s end.

“I think that what fans can really expect is the truth. The truth about what happens when you have a trauma 40 years ago.” – Jamie Lee Curtis

This time, Laurie is joined by her daughter, played by Judy Greer, and her granddaughter played by Andi Matichak. With three generation of Strode women working together, Michael Myers has his bloody hands full.

“He’s human, but inhuman. That combination is just terrifying.” – Jamie Lee Curtis

40 years ago she was the hunted, but now Jamie Lee Curtis plays the hunter. Her character has spent every day since first surviving Michael Myers preparing for his return.

“Hopefully it resolves with a woman being able to take back the narrative of her life away from her perpetrator.” – Jamie Lee Curtis

Halloween‘ is waiting for you in theaters now.
