When I first heard that Jamie Lee Curtis would be reprising her role as Laurie Strode in the new Halloween I immediately was ecstatic. I hadn’t been that excited about a Horror movie announcement since 1998’s Halloween H2O. Ok, maybe that is an exaggeration, but I was excited!
In case you haven’t read it yet here is the synopsis according to IMDB:
“Laurie Strode 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.”
Exciting stuff! If we are to pick apart the synopsis alone, it is clear that one of them is going to die…for good. I know we have heard that before, but I think this will be the nail in the coffin for the Michael and Laurie storyline once and for all. I highly doubt that this will be the last we see of Michael Meyers, but I can confidently say that this will be the last time we see him on screen with Laurie Strode.
Hopes, Dreams and Fears For Halloween 2018
My hopes and dreams for this movie is that it will be the Halloween 3 we all have been waiting for and what Halloween H2O was supposed to be…the showdown between Michael Meyers and Laurie Strode. When you look at everyone who is returning, this project is looking mighty good. Not only do we have Jamie Lee Curtis, but the horror master himself Jon Carpenter is involved. I get chills just thinking about it!
But really, this needs to be what Halloween H2O sought out to accomplish…and needs to NOT be erased by a cheesy follow up. I applaud Jamie for hating what they wanted to do and made them kill her off (again). I mean, honestly, Halloween: Resurrection was a joke…we all know it. My fear is that history repeats itself, but I have faith that Jamie wouldn’t make that mistake again. Hopefully she read the fine print of the contract this time.
Do you think Halloween 2018 will be a dream come true for us fans? Are you as excited as I am?
