If you've been paying attention, this film getting attention here should come as no surprise. Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C, Exhibit D
Just before moving on to Season Of The Witch, I felt it kind of essential to mention that Halloween II was Jamie Lee Curtis' intended swan song to horror movies. She was the first woman to ever be tagged with the title of "Scream Queen". In fact, she was it, THE Scream Queen. Its a big part of Halloween's history that it created this position. It wasn't until later or merely more modern times that the title started getting thrown to other actresses with such ease. Don't get me wrong, some deserve it for sure. But, when recently seeing Amanda Wyss on a "Where are the Scream Queens of the 80s now?" article, I scoff. And they also tend to stretch the rules and whatnot for what makes them....okay I'm gonna stop this train/tangent right now.
Okay, we'll go back all things pure and true to what the Halloween franchise is now, like Halloween III: Season Of The Witch.
