Jamie Lee Curtis Has Hilarious Reaction To Vintage Halloween 2 Poster

Jamie Lee Curtis hilariously reacts to a vintage Halloween 2 poster, jokingly reflecting on how the movie was released 40 years ago.

Jamie Lee Curtis posted a hilarious reaction to a vintage Halloween 2 advertising poster. Curtis first portrayed Laurie Strode in John Carpenter’s classic 1978 horror film, Halloween. Strode is a teenage babysitter who is stalked by deranged serial killer Michael Myers. Carpenter’s film was an immediate hit, grossing over $70 million at the box office, making it one of the highest-grossing independent films of all time. Additionally, critics praised Carpenter’s direction and score, and the original Halloween is now considered one of the greatest horror films ever made.

The success of Halloween would spawn a later sequel in 1981, known as Halloween 2. While Rick Rosenthal would take over directing the sequel, Carpenter penned the script, which again saw Curtis reprise his role as Strode. The plot of Halloween 2 picks up right after the events of the first film, with Michael Myers following his victim, Strode, to the local hospital. Originally serving as an end to the Halloween storyline, the sequel would establish Strode as being Michael’s sister, which would then serve as a story arc for later films. Like Michael, it looks like Curtis is once again returning to a franchise that has made her a household name.

In reference to the poster’s slogan, Halloween 2 establishes Michael’s connection to the occult, which is discovered by Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence). Loomis finds links linking Michael to Samhain, which is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season. Due to Michael’s connection to the occult, it is meant to explain his apparent indestructibility, hence the poster’s tagline above. The Curtis caption pokes fun at the poster and the fact that the movie was released over 40 years ago. The now 63-year-old actress was just 19 when she first came out as Strode in the original Halloweenand only 23 years old during Halloween 2. Curtis has gone on to reprise his role as the character many times over the years, with his latest release coming soon. Halloween ends.

Given her long history with the franchise, fans literally saw Curtis go from teenager to Hollywood icon in her role as Strode. remembering more Halloween 2 is sure to age viewers who have followed the entire series, but it’s also a nod to how the original Halloween the films have established themselves as horror classics. Fortunately, however, Curtis isn’t done with his character yet, and Strode will face off against Michael Myers one last time when Halloween ends releases later this year.
