Very few character deaths piss me off as much as that of Laurie Strode. HALLOWEEN‘s heroine was put through enough trauma to screw someone up for life, just within the first two films, before being killed off in off-screen events between HALLOWEEN 2 and 4, brought back with some serious retcon work inHALLOWEEN: H20, just to be killed again […]
