Talk about a spooktacular tribute!

Jamie Lee Curtis dressed up as her late mother Janet Leigh's Psycho character for the costume party premiere of Halloween Kills in Hollywood, Calif. on Oct. 12. 

Leigh played Marion Crane in the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film and famously appeared in the shower stabbing scene. Curtis didn't miss a beat while channeling her mom and arrived on the red carpet of the TCL Chinese Theatre in a dress and 'do that matched the ones Leigh sported in the movie. The 62-year-old actress even had a bloody shower curtain in tow.

"Honoring my mother in ALL her gory...I meant glory!" Curtis wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her look. "PREMIERE PARTY TIME!"

The Freaky Friday alum could thank celebrity hairstylist Sean James for her wig and makeup artist Grace Ahn for her glam. It looks like Curtis even did the paintwork on the shower curtain.

This isn't the first time Curtis has given a nod to her mom's career. In 2015, she recreated Leigh's Psycho shower scene for an episode of her show Scream Queens.

In her new movie Halloween Kills, Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode, who once again takes on Michael Myers following his return. The film continues the storyline of David Gordon Green's 2018 version of Halloween, which premiered 40 years after John Carpenter's original Halloween debuted in 1978. Curtis has starred in all of the Halloween movies and sequels over the years.

Halloween Kills hits theaters and is available to stream on Peacock starting Oct. 15.
