However, Jamie Lee Curtis has insisted that she has never watched these films herself.

“I’m not [a] fan of the movies. I’ve never seen any of them. None of them!”, she said when asked about the connection 1978's Halloween and the birth of the slasher genre.

 “It’s not my job. It’s your job!", she continued. "It’s your job to figure it all out. I can intellectualise these three movies particularly because there are trojan horses in all three movies. There’s a trojan horse of female expansion in 2018 [Halloween], there’s a trojan horse of mob violence and social uprising in the 2019 movie [Halloween Kills], and there’s a trojan horse of the infection and horrible understanding that in fact Michael Myers is not the only monster, that we are all monsters [in Halloween Ends]". 

“Those are the trojan horses in the middle of these three movies. I can talk about that but in the sense of the arc of the genre and the Halloween continuum – it’s not my job".
