HALLOWEEN
May 25, 2019  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

In this 2018 horror slasher film, Jamie Lee Curtis stars as Laurie Strode – a role she first played 40 years earlier, in John Carpenter’s influential 1978 film of the same name. The plot of this new film acknowledges the passage of that much time, and revisits, four decades later, the woman who was the only surviving teenager among the major characters in that first Halloween film – which, by the way, was Curtis’ film debut. And Curtis, of course, is the daughter of Janet Leigh, who had starred 18 years earlier in the most famous slasher movie of all time: Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.
