[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”29691″ img_size=”913×413″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]We are so close to the next Halloween film so close that I can taste it. With Halloween Kills in October 2020 and Halloween Ends on October 2021. First off I know I am late but congratulations to Jamie Lee Curtis to win Best Actress for her return as Laurie Strode.
In this interview with John Rocha, Jamie Lee Curtis talks about Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. Jamie Lee Curtis talks about why she went for the role in the first place.
“The ass-kicking part is the fan-favorite part, but from my standpoint, I didn’t go into it because I got to kick Michael’s bottom. I was particularly drawn because it was a movie about trauma. We have horror movies that are horrific and we have these horrific events take place, but we leave the movie theater and then we complain that the dishwasher doesn’t work. The trauma that occurs for these character for forty years, I felt was very important that David understood that and was really giving Laurie great honor to acknowledge that her experience of her life was very challenged.
And then kick his ass. And then you. realize that it, in fact, was all like a spider’s web, but in order to go to the spider’s web, you also had to see the fragile person. And I was grateful that that was the angel. I think that if from the opening section I was kicking butt, it wouldn’t have had the emotional reaction that people actually had.”
Jamie Lee Curtis later talks about why she loves David, Danny, and company and how they are focusing on making things connect from the 1978 Halloween film.
“What I love that David and Danny and company did is they connected the dots for forty years, now they’re going back to really unpack the first movie, bringing back all those characters whose lives were affected by what happened in 1978.”
And then the last movie is the sort of cultural phenomenon of violence, that’s what the third movie ultimately is, a very powerful examination of violence.
It comes at it from a slightly different way. You’ll like it…. If you believe in me at all, I promise you what David Gordon Green has come up with as a way to complete this trilogy is sensational.
