Nostalgia Alert! Jamie Lee Curtis Just Recreated Her Mom’s ‘Psycho’ Costume

Jamie Lee Curtis just paid tribute to her late mother, Janet Leigh.

This week, the 62-year-old actress attended the premiere of her all-new scary movie, Halloween Kills, at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. But it wasn’t any ordinary red-carpet event—instead, it was a costume party.

Naturally, Curtis dressed up as her mom’s character from Psycho, Marion Crane. (Two words: shower scene.)

Curtis teased the costume on Instagram, revealing a vintage blue dress with a button-down front and belted waist. Although her short wig and ’60s-inspired glam are spot on, the real showstopper is the prop she carried around: a shower curtain splattered with fake blood.

“Honoring my mother in ALL her gory…I meant glory!” Curtis captioned the post. “PREMIERE PARTY TIME!” The actress even credited her team, including celebrity hairstylist Sean James and makeup artist Grace Ahn.

Curtis followed up with another photo of herself posing alongside a poster of Michael Myers (played by James Jude Courtney). She wrote, “ME AND MY SHADOW.”

This isn’t the first time Curtis has paid tribute to her famous mother. (She previously recreated the shower scene in an episode of Scream Queens.) Still, the nod came at an appropriate time, since the actress is returning to her horror roots and reprising her role as Laurie Strode in the latest installment of the Halloween franchise. Halloween Kills will hit theaters on October 15, in addition to a digital release on Peacock.

Like mother, like daughter.
