After unluckily being born into the Myers family, Laurie Strode danced with the devil in a white mask for years. While some heroines become close with their stalkers, Strode is literally kin with hers.

And like most families, Michael would go on to make his sister pay. Laurie Strode can be seen in Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween: H20, and Halloween: Resurrection. While the last installment is less than stellar, the other “Strode” Halloween movies are the stuff of legend. Which is exactly how 1428 describes the Halloween series’s greatest “Final Girl”.
