In 1978, she made her feature film debut playing Laurie Strode in John Carpenter's seminal slasher film Halloween, which established her as a scream queen and led to a string of parts in horror films such as The Fog, Prom Night, Terror Train and Roadgames. She reprised the role of Laurie in the sequels Halloween II, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, Halloween: Resurrection, Halloween, Halloween Kills, and Halloween Ends. In 1997, she was inducted into the Fangoria Hall of Fame. Curtis's film work spans many genres, including the cult comedies Trading Places—for which she won a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress—and A Fish Called Wanda, for which she received a BAFTA nomination for Best Actress. Her role in the 1985 film Perfect earned her a reputation as a sex symbol.
