Jamie Lee Curtis bonds with Michael Myers in new Halloween photo shoot

On nightly walks through my neighborhood, I’ve noticed that my neighbors have already begun decorating their homes in anticipation of this year’s Halloween celebration. As skeletons are hung from Maple trees with care, and pumpkins with frightening faces are placed atop cracked concrete steps, I’m reminded that soon, David Gordon Green’s HALLOWEEN is set to arrive in theaters as well. It truly is a magical time of the year for those who delight in candy, creepy campfire tales, and crazed killers hellbent on seeking revenge.

Today, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the cover of their special October issue, which features an exclusive HALLOWEEN photo collection as well as some details about the upcoming horror film.

You can check out the collection of photos for yourself below:

“For Laurie Strode, Michael Myers is her sole focus,” Jamie Lee Curtis told EW. “For a lot of people, out of sight, out of mind. For her, out of sight, out of mind. She is out of her mind! Because she knows that Michael Myers is a threat, and no one else seems to take him so.”

In director David Gordon Green’s HALLOWEEN, 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. Having trained most of her life for Michael’s inevitable return, Laurie must protect herself, and her family, against an oncoming evil unlike the world has never known.


“The first movie, I was running more,” Curtis said when asked to compare her role in John Carpenter’s original 1978 HALLOWEEN with Green’s new sequel. “In this movie, I’m hunting more,” Curtis added.

James Jude Courtney, who plays Michael Myers alongside Nick Castle in the new film explained to EW that he kept his distance from Curtis while on the set. “I just want her to have her space,” Courtney confessed. “Because man, what we’re doing is intense stuff,” says The Shape actor.

Courtney is likely onto something with regard to keeping himself hidden from Curtis during their down time, as the distance is likely to make their on-screen chemistry that much more genuine, as dread can certainly be a motivator when push comes to shove.

When asked about what advice Curtis would give her HALLOWEEN character, the TRUE LIES and TRADING PLACES actress said, “Everything is going to be okay.” Is this a clue into Strode’s fate? Will she live to battle Michael another day, or will the Boogieman finally get his revenge on an old friend? We’re going to have to wait to find out, but holy Sweet Tarts am I looking forward to it!

The special HALLOWEEN issue of Entertainment Weekly will hit shelves on Friday. Meanwhile, HALLOWEEN is expected to treat audience members to a series of scares beginning on October 19th.
