Halloween Makes a Killing at Box Office! Jamie Lee Curtis is an Immortal Scream Queen!
"It`s the season for spooky movies, and the new take on horror classic Halloween scared up a monster $77.5 million opening weekend. Star Jamie Curtis celebrated Sunday with what she called a boast post.
`OK. I`m going for one BOAST post,` Curtis tweeted. `Biggest horror movie opening with a female lead. Biggest movie opening with a female lead over 55. Second biggest October movie opening ever. Biggest Halloween opening ever.`"
Horror flicks usually star nubile bimbos who don`t have the brains not to look under the bed, open the closet door or go down to the basement when they hear a creepy sound.
Jamie Lee Curtis was 19 when she starred in the original slasher film "Halloween" in 1978.
Curtis is now 59, and for an actress of her vintage to star in a horror movie is as unusual as Pee Wee Herman starring in an action flick.
There have been countless of sequels and remakes of John Carpenter`s horror movie classic, and this latest iteration doesn`t compare with the original but Curtis delivers a compelling performance.
I`m looking forward to 20 years from now when Halloween 25 is playing and a 79-year old Curtis playing Laurie Strode is still fighting Michael Myers.
Curtis has every right to boast, she`s killing it at the box office! You go girl!
