Halloween (1978)
Curtis showed off that famous scream, as she fought for her life against the unstoppable Shape.

Terror Train (1980)
One of two Canadian slashers Curtis made back to back in 1980. 'Terror Train' has the unique twist of having its 'stalk and slash' scenario play out on a moving train.

H20 (1998)
The writer of 'Scream' got his dream job of bringing Jaime Lee back as Laurie Strode to battle once again with her demonic brother Micheal Myers. The fact that the Laurie character was meant to have died some time between parts 2 and 4 of the series didn't stand in the way of her return.
