Watch Jennifer Garner Freak Out Over 'Hamilton' After Dental Procedure
The half-laughing, half-crying Jen tried to recount hearing a song while she was in the dentist chair and, well, just watch. Going to the dentist is a part of life that sucks pretty hard, I think we can all agree on that.

Jamie Lee first represented the character, Laurie, in the original slasher film released in 1978. The man himself, John Carpenter, will executive-produce and serve as a creative consultant, and said at the time the project was announced that he might even do the music for it: "Maybe". Much of the film is shot through the killer's visual point of view, which gives the viewer the constant and terrifying feeling that the protagonist is always being watched.

Curtis, via her own social media account, added this statement: "Same porch".

"Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago", explained the press release. "It was just very simple and just achieved that level of horror that wasn't corny and it wasn't turning Michael Myers into some supernatural being that couldn't be killed".
