By R. Shanea Williams ( @rshanea722 ) Did you happen to hear my scream of joy late last year? When news broke that Jamie Lee Curtis would be reprising her role as Laurie Strode for another Halloween film, like most horror fans, I was super geeked. This is the reunion I’ve been waiting and hoping for but never in my wildest cinematic dreams did I think it would come to fruition. If you know me personally or read my guest posts for this site, you know my love for the Halloween franchise runs deep— okay, that’s an understatement. My love for the Halloween franchise borders on hysterical adoration. The original Halloween (1978) is my favorite horror film and one of my favorite films of all time. It continues to inspire me as a filmmaker in this genre. I also watch it every. single. Halloween.
