Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, the object of serial killer Michael Meyers bloodlust, in the new Halloween sequel (which ignores every other sequel after the original 1978 film). She’s older now and has spent her life preparing for the eventuality that Meyers will escape and it will be up to HER to hunt him down. He does of course, and carnage ensues.
Curtis told Coming Soon that the new film, set for release on Oct. 19, “stylistically, characterologically, visually, emotionally … follows very similar themes but it’s its own movie so it’s a very clever mash-up, to use a young people’s word, of the first movie in a retelling like a direct sequel but it’s fascinating. When you see what they’ve come up with you’ll be like ‘Wow,’ because it’s a very modern and yet very true movie.”
