It’s been 40 years since the release of the first “Halloween” movie, starring Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, the shy babysitter who survives serial killer Michael Myers. Now Curtis reprises her role. This 11th installment is about a traumatized woman who lets everything in her life fall away, so she can focus on one thing: being ready for Myers’ return. Curtis says it’s about generational trauma.
