Kyle Richards and Jamie Lee Curtis re-created a scene from the original Halloween, 43 years later, in a new behind-the-scenes video for Halloween Kills.

Long before she became one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards was a child actress who starred in the 1978 horror classic Halloween.

Halloween Kills is a follow-up to 2018’s Halloween reboot, which earned more than $250 million worldwide.

It also became the highest-grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman. 

Curtis previously raved about Richards’ acting in a 2019 interview where she said, ‘She is so great that it’s going to be so fun for her audience — who now is used to [knowing] her for her TV show — they are going to be so happy to [see] an actress again.’

‘”She is absolutely fantastic and so beautiful that, you know, she gets very … distressed in this movie in every way,” Curtis added. “Emotionally, physically, environmentally, and she just completely let that other life and just came and shot for three, four weeks and was amazing. People are going to be bonkers about her.”
