Halloween: John Carpenter’s New Score Gets the Spotlight in Featurette

Jamie Lee Curtis likens her ‘Halloween’ character to Christine Blasey Ford as both endured ‘trauma

Jamie Lee Curtis is reprising her role of Laurie Strode in Halloween, but her onscreen counterpart's gun-wielding antics are prompting backlash from some conservatives, who are pointing to Curtis' own advocacy for gun control as hypocritical. "But while Curtis is in favor of gun control legislation, she apparently isn't entirely anti-gun".

Now, it should go without saying that, in Halloween, Curtis is playing a fictional character who happens to use guns as part of a trauma-driven survival narrative, and that character's motives and actions do not reflect her own, in much the same way that Mads Mikkelsen's performance as a sociopathic cannibal in Hannibal probably does not reflect his own daily life. "If you have a bevy of armed security officers protecting you, maybe you shouldn't be trying to strip Second Amendment rights from law-abiding citizens". Using new technology, we just brought them back to life - we put new life into it, really. "For instance, I fully support an assault weapon ban, I fully support a bump stock ban", she continues. But she's also appeared in films such as "True Lies", "Virus", "Halloween II" and "Blue Steel" where she uses firearms multiple times.

The Hollywood scream queen this week sparked debate over the contrast between her public statements on gun policy and her on-screen firearm use. But neither of those things are supporting a ban on guns.

It will feature an early version of the full game, and is not the same version being used for the B.E.T.A. or launch. This will be a small, timed stress test exclusive to North America , and progress will not carry over.

"I'm an actress who's in slasher movies", she told the publisher. "I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons (that) were intended for self-defense for her and her family".

Curtis explains that Strode arms her progeny with firearms that are stored behind a padlocked cabinet, "and then very specifically says what each weapon does and why you would choose that weapon in self-defense". "I have to be responsible for my own personal choices in my own personal life".

In the end, both sides are talking about Halloween, which is still set to hit theaters October 19, and, as the quote often attributed to showman and hoax master P.T. Barnum goes, "There is no such thing as bad publicity". She added: "If I had made my career as a pacifist actor, I would never have worked, ever".
