“I didn’t really make much money off of the horror movies to be perfectly honest,” she admitted. “As a young actress, I did not [get paid well]. I did not have ownership of the movies. There was no profit participation. There was no back end. And I didn’t get out for that reason. And I certainly by Halloween 2, which was the last of the six [horror movies] I did in my 20s, I think I got paid OK for the time. But it wasn’t … there was no large amount of money made.”

Jamie stated that she was paid “scale” for Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (i.e. the minimum amount by union standards). “But obviously I had a piece of the pie, so of course I made some money off that movie,” she explained.

“But it’s just now. I’m 61. I didn’t start making money from horror movies until much later.” Jamie earned approximately $3.1 million between Halloween, Halloween II, and Halloween: Resurrection.
