The Moment The Halloween Kills Director Finally Felt The ‘Pressure’ To Conclude Laurie Strode’s Legacy



Halloween Kills isn’t just another Halloween sequel; it’s the second in a trilogy that will presumably cement the legacy of the original scream queen, Laurie Strode. John Carpenter’s now classic Halloween film not only started Jamie Lee Curtis’ career, but marked the beginning of the slasher genre’s Golden Age. As we get ready to see how it all plays out, writer/director David Gordon Green shared how he’s feeling about being at the center of delivering a satisfying finale. 

David Gordon Green appeared at an advanced screening of Halloween Kills at Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk Hollywood this past Sunday evening, and he shared his approach to dealing with the pressure of being the filmmaker behind Laurie Strode and Michael Myers’ return. In his words: 

I was just excited that I felt like I was writing something that people want to see and so much of my career is writing weird things for me and my friends to go make in the woods. And I don’t think the reality of the pressure really hit me until the movie was on… because I was just a fan with an opportunity. I am really just happy to be a part of this legacy, which is pretty amazing. I had breakfast with Jamie Lee Curtis this morning and I have to pinch myself every time. We were talking about ideas about how to conclude the greatest horror franchise of my life and I feel closest to. I love Chainsaw, I love Nightmare [on Elm Street] and Friday the 13th but this was the one that felt a little bit more grounded and identifiable for me. So to be a part of that is amazing.
