I didn’t know then, [ But] I know now: one of these days, hopefully not tomorrow, but I 64 – I mean, doing math, it’s not good for me – sooner or later say three Words: HALLOWEEN The actress died,” Curtis later added. “I mean, it’s the permanent ink in my life.

“Laurie Strode smiles for a moment, then the ceiling collapses and the rest of the story begins,” she continued. “But there was a moment, so I believe there’s a little bit of hope for the movie.”

As for working with Green again, Curtis thinks he’s not just continuing the franchise — and Provided 2018 the box office hit of Halloween – but expanded its execution of social metaphors beyond It’s killer to kill.

“David Gordon Green has some foresight and some understanding of society – what we do with each other, how we feel as a group of people in our community,” The actress explained. “What David Gordon Green does is like he’s stuffing three little Trojan horses into every movie. These movies aren’t just Michael Myers. And Laurie Strode. They’re about Who we are.”

Curtis specifically pointed out Halloween and Halloween Killing narratives surrounding uprisings and women taking power back – in the ongoing #MeToo movement – as Greene’s take on the Halloween movie is Timely and meaningful example.

“David Gordon Green sent me a script and he said, ‘I think Laurie 40 has been living behind a barbed 44 age line, emotionally, physically, mentally, it’s the only goal in her life,'” Curtis said. By Halloween , and added that it was a movie about Laurie and her trauma. “It’s a beautiful film about a woman taking control of her life, and it coincides with women all over the world standing up and taking control of their lives, say me too. Time’s up.”

As for Halloween Kills , Curtis pointed out that the film’s main storyline — about a small town’s revolt against Michael Myers — coincides with different uprisings across the country, including The racial justice protests following the murder of George Floyd and the Jan. 6 uprising

This is about a community that is basically The community says the system is broken. It does not work. We’re going to take back power, and this coincides with a lot of civil unrest across the country,” she said. “It’s mostly based on the killing of George Floyd, but it’s happening all over the country. A group of people started to stand up, coinciding with a movie and the uprising of January 6th — and then we released the movie.

Curtis attributed the success of the franchise to that cross between the slasher and the message, saying, “I couldn’t be more proud of them. I am proud of him. I’m proud of our crew and writers, and I’m proud of the audience for wanting [it]. You don’t just want to see Michael walking around like this. You want something substantial. The integrity of these films is the reason for their success.

Earlier in the panel, Curtis also celebrated what Laurie Strode as a character gave her as a teen actress. As a Performer, this is an exciting opportunity for her, especially since she bears little resemblance to Strode.

“So when I , I wasn’t like Laurie Strode. Laurie Strode is an acting character. I’m a bit mean, I’m a bit mixed,” Curtis said. “She doesn’t look like me. She doesn’t dress like me. She doesn’t think like me. I just graduated from high school. She was like the valedictorian for the class. I have a real chance to be an actor that I haven’t had before.

Curtis said one of the ways she was challenged by the role was through an element of her portrayal: Strode’s vulnerability. “John to me All it said was, ‘I want her to be vulnerable,'” Curtis recalled. “I thought that meant weakness for some reason.

That thought changed when Curtis went to Hollywood to show the film and he saw a woman standing and yelling for Strode not to walk into Michael The house that Miles was in. That’s when the actress said the whole theater “unleashed” an emotional horror movie experience.

“It was right there. Seconds, I said, ‘That’s what he meant. He wants her to be vulnerable so you care about her and you don’t want her to be hurt,'” Curtis explained. “And you haven’t been 44 years old. Hope I’m hurt. ”
