What does being a ‘final girl’ mean to horror’s original final girl – and her successor to the blood-soaked throne? We sat down with Halloween Kills stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Judy Greer to find out just that. In an extended conversation ahead of the horror sequel’s release in theaters and on Peacock, Curtis and Greer talk about what being a final girl means to them and to horror audiences, where we find their characters in the new film, and why the women of some of our favorite slasher films continue to inspire audiences to this day.
