Jamie Lee Curtis reprises famous horror role in 2018's 'Halloween'

Jamie Lee Curtis reprises famous horror role in 2018's 'Halloween'

Though Curtis left the franchise after Halloween II, she was persuaded to return for 1998's Halloween H20: 20 Years Later.

Check out the first look at Curtis in the upcoming film, which is confusingly titled simply Halloween.

The actress captioned a photo of herself on the porch of the classic house where all of the Michael Myers drama first began. Why can't Laurie be, as well?

Well, it sure is a freaky Friday.

According to the official press release, the plot is: "Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago". We're not entirely sure what "same issues" means, given that she's 40 years older and no longer a baby-sitting teenager, but we're willing to give it a shot at least. "David and I are coming from it as, we are horror fans, and we are enormous fans of John Carpenter and of what he did with the original Halloween, so I think from watching this and being disappointed by other versions of this series, I think we're just trying to strip it down and just take it back to what was so good about the original".

Halloween opens October 19, 2018. It's already been done with Strode once before, when it was revealed in Halloween: H20 that she had faked her death after the events of Halloween 2, which more or less nullified the events of Halloween 4, Halloween 5 and Halloween 6. The film, co-written and directed by scary-movie genius John Carpenter, literally defined a new generation of horror (aka: super creepy guy terrorizes group of teens). Because sometimes, lightning (slash, insanely scary and genius horror movies starring Jamie Lee Curtis) strikes twice.
