Some stars come to Comic-Con with lips firmly sealed, and then there’s Jamie Lee Curtis. The original scream queen, who reprises her role as Laurie Strode in the upcoming Halloween, and director David Gordon Green spoke to Rotten Tomatoes’ Grae Drake about the project, and she wasn’t holding back.

The duo revealed that while the new movie does play as a direct sequel to the original 1978 movie – ignoring the sequels and reboots that came between – there are plenty of Easter Eggs and throwbacks to the other films for fans of the franchise. Curtis said that the narrative change makes for a richly emotional story about a woman who has been dealing with trauma for 40 years. “It’s a movie about trauma,” Curtis said. “It’s the perfect movie for 2018.”

As for whether there are going to be sequels and whether this new movie will kick off a whole new era for Michael Myers, Green had three words: “Anything is possible.”

Halloween is in theaters October 19
