The reactions are soon to be rolling out of the Venice Film Festival shortly as Halloween Kills premiered there this morning (We will be covering it all live at 1PM EST here Thursday afternoon).
At the panel this morning ON THE VERY FIRST QUESTION she was asked why she seemed more “engaged” with this trilogy than other iterations of Halloween. Her response was was as spicy as you’d expect. Well, first she did the mom laugh. You know, the one where your mom is about to fuck you up infront of all your friends. Then she said:
“Engaged is an interesting word. I think you’re as engaged as the work you’re given.” she continued “I am responsible for what you think of me and what you think of me is based on the work that I’ve been offered to do.” “I was not a writer so I am subject to the work I am given. What David (did) with the 2018 movie was explore something deeper and we’re actors so the deeper you want us to go the deeper we’ll go.”
God love Jamie Lee Curtis. She will slap you in the face with some truth bombs faster than Dr. Loomis would smack Michael Myers in the face with a 2×4.
Curtis’ issues with Halloween H20 and Halloween Resurrection are well documented. How she was promised H20 would be the end and when she found out it wasn’t she ended up just doing it for the check. And we all know how Resurrection turned out. There are some things so dark you don’t speak of them out loud. You keep them in the shadows. Like a hot fart or Bustah Rhymes acting.
