Jamie Lee Curtis calls the new Halloween film “terrifying”


The new Halloween film is quickly approaching and Jamie Lee Curtis wants everyone to know that when the first trailer is revealed, it will make the wait worthwhile.

When a new chapter in the Halloween universe was announced with Jamie Less Curtis, horror fans had a good idea that this was going to be a step in the right direction for the film franchise. The film is said to essentially disregard the other films entirely, serving as a direct follow-up to the original 1978 Halloween. The new installment is produced by modern horror mastermind Jason Blum, alongside screenwriters David Gordon Green, Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley – with music by the brilliant John Carpenter, who is the man behind the first movie.

There has been virtually little to no news or promotional material outside of two stills announcing the return of Curtis, until the first poster made its way to the internet this week. An aged, masked Michael is depicted in a close up with a dark background that is a reminder even after all these years, he’s going to make quite the comeback.

Now Jamie Lee Curtis has additionally opened up about Halloween to Yahoo, describing the film in ways that the fans will be excited to hear. Curtis says,  “I’ve seen a trailer, and I’ve seen some footage and it’s terrifying.” She added, “They went full-tilt boogeyman. And I’ve never said that in my life, and I will say full-tilt boogeyman for the rest of the year as I go around talking about this.”

The upcoming film also stars Judy Greer as the daughter of Curtis (Laurie Strode) and the granddaughter of Curtis played by Andi Matichak. In the interview, Curtis also offered a little bit of information on Matichak’s role by revealing, “It’s the original story in many, many, many ways. Just retold 40 years later with my granddaughter.” If anything, Curtis alone could handle the marketing campaign for Halloween because we are excited now more than ever to see what Blumhouse will do with a reintroduction to Halloween.
