The daughter of Tony Curtis (‘Some Like It Hot‘) and Janet Leigh (‘Psycho‘), Curtis began her career in John Carpenter‘s classic horror movie ‘Halloween‘ and has gone on to reprise her role in several sequels and reboots.

She’s also appeared in such beloved films as ‘Trading Places,’ ‘True Lies,’ ‘Freaky Friday,’ ‘Knives Out‘ and most recently ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once,’ which recently earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

In honor of Curtis’ new movie, ‘Haunted Mansion,’ which opens in theaters on July 28th, ECinema News is counting down the best films of Jamie Lee Curtis’ long and impressive career, including her latest.

Let’s begin!


Two decades after surviving a massacre on October 31, 1978, former baby sitter Laurie Strode (Curtis) finds herself hunted by persistent knife-wielder Michael Myers. Laurie now lives in Northern California under an assumed name, where she works as the headmistress of a private school. But it’s not far enough to escape Myers, who soon discovers her whereabouts. As Halloween descends upon Laurie’s peaceful community, a feeling of dread weighs upon her — with good reason.
