Ahead of the release of the latest Halloween , here's a look back at Laurie Strode's many previous appearances, and how the resilient character survived -- or didn't -- each time.
Seventeen-year-old Laurie Strode (Curtis) is supposed to babysit Tommy Doyle (Brian Andrews) on Halloween -- a normal occurrence in the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois.
As Myers killed Strode's friends throughout the neighbourhood, he soon sets his sights on Laurie herself and the pair of kids she is protecting.
In this sequel that picks up directly after the end of the original, Strode is on her way to the hospital, wondering why Michael attacked her so relentlessly.
Strode also appeared to attract new fans with the viral workout video.
In a separate post, (https://www.instagram.com/p/BWPaNisFvCe/?taken-by=bubs2bikinis&hl=en) Strode shared a photo of her newborn, writing, "I'm quite sore and completely exhausted and also quite emotional.
Strode did not immediately return International Business Times' request for comment.
Strode made an appearance on "Today Extra," an Australian-based talk show, to share how she acquired her post-pregnancy body in 2016.
But Strode would say that defining Phoenix Multisport by reciting a list of the physical activities its members engage in misses the point.
Strode got sober at age 24; he had started drinking at a very young age and was regularly using cocaine and other drugs by 15.
However, Strode's discovery of athletic pursuits soon would become a total immersion.
"You actually get strong on your rest days," says Strode, now 40 and having celebrated 16 years of sobriety in April.
In order to collect background information on Strode's travel films, I interviewed his widow, Lois Strode-Aykroyd, in March 1997 at a cafe in Rancho Bernardo, California.
Colonel Strode's working method included rigorous research for each site visited, meticulous pre-production details, informed framing of shots, and fastidious editing techniques.
Without the support of his wife and the localized network of other enthusiastic filmmakers provided by the San Diego Amateur Film Club, Colonel Strode might not have been able to produce his films with the same polished flare.
