This is where I am at too.
I am happy for my dear pals like The Dark Shape who are freaking out over this. But... I mean... this will be Curtis' 5th turn in the role and now the 2nd retcon pertaining to her. This just doesn't hold the weight and "Holy S-H-I-T!" factor that it did 20 years ago when she agreed to return for Halloween: H20.
I was under the impression this wasn't going to bog itself down in continuity. Just be a straight-up Halloween film. But you throw in Laurie Strode again and questions arise about what timeline they are choosing to adhere to. The kind of details that get in the way of the simple, Boogeyman freight-fest that made the original such a perfect film. But... it's all about the execution and truthfully, no, I don't know what they are going for. I give them the benefit of the doubt here. But again this honestly isn't the big deal we're making it out to be.
