31 Days of Halloween: Day #11 … My Favorite Jamie Lee Curtis Horror Flicks

Welcome back to my 31 Days of Halloween series.  Today is Day #11, and it’s all about Jamie Lee Curtis.

Hands down Jamie Lee is my favorite actress when it comes to 80s horror movies.  When I say my daughter and I love them.  We really love them, and last year we dedicated a day all to Jamie. This year we will definatley include Halloween Kills.

Today I’m sharing my favorite Jamie Lee Curtis horror movies!

Remember the evolution of horror was still in it’s toddler stages in the 80s but it’s definitely come a long way from it 50s and 60s counterparts.  Directors and film-makers were experimenting and pushing the limits beyond what your imagination would be. The modern-day horror movie was beginning to mirror real life-horrors.
