CelebnMovies247.com reports that Jamie Lee Curtis dressed as her mother Janet Leigh from the horror classic “Psycho” at the costume party premiere of “Halloween Kills” on Tuesday night at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Curtis had this to say of the “Halloween” franchise:

It’s the ultimate good versus evil. Laurie Strode represents the quotidian, quintessential, innocent American teenage girl, that is innocence personified. And when you collide it with the essence of evil which is Michael Meyers, you create a tension that you, the audience member, wants to protect her.

The film follows Strode and her family as they band together with the other survivors of Haddonfield, Ill. to hunt down Michael Meyers and end his reign of terror

Curtis told Variety:

It’s old school. Every western has a good guy and a bad guy. Shakespeare, the Greeks, there’s always been this collision between good and evil, and it’s been very successful and emotional at the same time.

The film tackles themes of fear and the gravity of death, but director David Gordon Green explained that the beauty of the franchise also lies within the audience’s ability to take away their own lessons from the story.

Green said:

The beauty of Michael Meyers is it’s an expressionless, emotionless face, and so we can project our fear onto him, or if you like having fun at a scary movie, let’s go scream our heads off and eat some popcorn.

“Halloween Kills” was slated nearly a full year ago, but was delayed due to the pandemic, producer Jason Blum said:

It was so hard when the movie was finished, and we didn’t get to show it, so I’m very glad we’re getting to show it in the best theater in the world here.

Curtis, Green and Blum introduced the film before the screening (“Happy fucking Halloween!” yelled Curtis to a cheering audience). The premiere was immediately followed by a rooftop afterparty at the nearby Dream Hotel.

The sequel to the most recent “Halloween” film, “Halloween Kills” premieres Oct. 15.
