Scout Taylor-Compton In “Halloween II”

By  | 

Scout Taylor-Compton, who starred in 4 episodes of Gilmore Girls as Clara Forester, is all grown up! She’s a far cry now from the little girl who played Dean’s sister, that’s for sure! And she’s a very prolific actress, seen here at the premiere on Monday for Halloween II, a movie in which she stars.

Laurie is the primary female protagonist in many of the Halloween films. She’s Michael’s baby sitter, and the young Michael Myers (who later turns into the killer) is quite affectionate towards her. However, it turns out that Michael is actually Laurie’s real brother, after Laurie was adopted into another family following their mother’s suicide (due to Michael killing Laurie’s sister).

In this sequel, writer, director & producer Rob Zombie focuses on the psychological issues shared between Laurie and Michael. In the film, Michael returns to his home town, bringing death in his wake, in order to “take care of some unfinished family business… stopping at nothing to bring closure to the secrets of his twisted past.” Laurie is just slipping into her own insanity, so it should play out to be an interesting movie. You can read more about it here.

Halloween II opens in theaters on August 28, 2009.
