Comic-Con Fan Says ‘Halloween’ And Jamie Lee Curtis Saved His Life

Who knew that a panel at San Diego Comic-Con for the upcoming Halloween film would produce one of the most emotional moments of this year’s annual fan convention?

During a question and answer session audience member Jeffrey Scott got emotional while speaking with Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis and recounting his encounter with a knife-wielding home invader. As Variety reports, Scott detailed the time when someone cut his phone line and attempted to break into his house.

“I was scared out of my mind and out of nowhere this thought inside of me went, ‘Well, what would Jamie Lee Curtis do?'” Scott said, according to videos posted online from those in attendance. “To make a long story short, I’m here today because of the way that you portrayed Lauri Strode. I’m a victor today instead of a victim.”

He added, “You’re the only reason I came to Comic-Con this year.”

At this point, Curtis left the stage and gave him a long hug and a kiss on the cheek. She said, “These kind of emotions are real.” Curtis then spent several minutes with Scott and even posed for a few photos.

Halloween, the sequel to the original 1978 film, follows Curtis will reprise her role as Laurie Strode, who is suffering from PTSD due to her encounter with Michael Myers 40 years earlier. “She lives in complete isolation, waiting for [Michael Myers] to come back because she knows he’s going to,” Curtis explained. This movie ignores the many sequels that followed the original.

The reboot of Halloween is set for release in October.
