Being a toddler star in a horror film isn’t a straightforward job — however hundreds of actors have taken it on.
“It was slightly tiny pish of a horror film shot in 20 days. I’m being sincere. I imply, it’s good that it has a fanbase,” Jamie Lee Curtis, who starred within the authentic 1978 Halloween, advised NME concerning the now-famous film in October 2018. “I’m not attempting to be facetious or cute or intelligent. Though I do attempt to try this usually… It simply bothers me as a result of there’s some feeling that this was some preordained, deliberate mastermind and that’s simply s–t.”
Curtis defined that director John Carpenter would “be the primary individual to inform you” that they’d no clue what kind of large success the movie — and its many subsequent sequels — would have.
“We had been making an exploitation slasher film about killing babysitters. And that’s what it was. Shot in 20 days, shot for nothing. Quick, livid, vicious and what it grew to become actually had nothing to do with the intent of the work,” she continued. “The intent of the work was to make a film after which, as a younger filmmaker, make one other film. It grew to become then the factor you might get one other job from, not that it was going to turn out to be one thing.”
