During the Red Carpet for the highly anticipated horror sequel, “Halloween Kills,” franchise star, Jamie Lee Curtis, took the opportunity to honor her mom in a very unique way.
Curtis spoke with ET’s Matt Cohen at the premiere of ‘Halloween Kills.’ Curtis shared what it meant to her to wear a costume inspired by her mother, the late Janet Leigh, and her iconic ‘scream queen’ role as Marion Crane in ‘Psycho.’
When speaking about Halloween Kills, Curtis had this to say:
“It’s the ultimate good versus evil,” Curtis said of the “Halloween” franchise. “Laurie Strode represents the quotidian, quintessential, innocent American teenage girl, that is innocence personified. And when you collide it with the essence of evil which is Michael Meyers, you create a tension that you, the audience member, wants to protect her.”
The sequel to the most recent “Halloween” film, “Halloween Kills” premieres Oct. 15. The film follows Strode and her family as they band together with the other survivors of Haddonfield, Ill. to hunt down Michael Meyers and end his reign of terror once and for all.
“Halloween Kills” arrives in theaters on Friday and streams the same day on Peacock.
