The real Laurie Strode is back in Haddonfield! After Rob Zombie’s remakes which introduced a new less-than-watchable Laurie, and Halloween: H20 and Halloween: Resurrection which seemed to misunderstand her character, we’re getting to go back to that original Laurie everyone loved forty years ago in the upcoming Halloween movie.
As you can see in her Tweet, Jamie Lee Curtis is really doing her best to match the part. She’s even sporting a very familiar hair and fashion style, one that’s sure to shock your senses with a late 70’s aesthetic. Groovy!
First shot! First day. Same slate. Same Laurie. David Gordon Green directing from his script. Happy Halloween 2018 everyone. See you 10/19/18 @halloweenmovie #HalloweenMovie pic.twitter.com/iSC7NOblEA

“First shot. First day. Same slate. Same Laurie,” Curtis managed to tweet with the image. It comes just a day after the first look at Michael Myers on set had been revealed.
It’s really something special to get to see the original slate be used – and maybe if we’re lucky it’s a hint that Dean Cundy might be Director of Photography again. Not only is his work on the original Halloween amazing, but the visuals he helped create in Halloween III: Season of the Witch are absolutely breathtaking. If they could somehow pair those visuals with the suspenseful slasher aspect of the original Halloween, it’d be a perfect movie.
What else is exciting is that besides Jamie Lee Curtis returning, we’ll get to have original shape actor Nick Castle back as the original Michael Myers! After getting a new Myers actor with each installment including the original Halloween 2, it’s really surreal to get to see the original actor pick up the mask again after forty years.
Who could’ve imagined that happening after Rob Zombie’s remakes came out?
Nevertheless, it seems like a good time to be a Halloween fan. Let’s hope they keep up the good work.
In the film…
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.
The new Halloween movie hits theaters on October 19, 2018.
