Jamie Lee Curtis—Hollywood’s reigning scream queen—is back as Laurie Strode in Halloween Kills, facing off against the psycho killer Michael Myers once again. In lieu of a typical red carpet, a costume party premiere was held for the film in Los Angeles yesterday. Judy Greer, who plays Curtis’s daughter Karen in the film, dressed up as Annie Hall; Kyle Richards, who also stars in the film as Haddonfield native Lindsey Wallace, suited up as a circus ringleader. But it was Curtis’s costume that stole the show.
Bringing high camp to the red carpet, Curtis paid homage to her mother Janet Leigh by dressing up as Leigh’s character in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. You remember that iconic scene; The one where she’s stabbed to death in the shower by Norman Bates. (You may hear the scene as well). Curtis wore a bright blue, buttoned-up dress and a pert blonde bob. Just in case you missed the reference, she carried a blood-soaked shower curtain. 
For a film as scary and gruesome as Halloween Kills, designed to scare the daylights out of the audience, Curtis nailed her equally-eerie red carpet approach. Plus, Leigh was a scream queen in her own right, so it’s only natural that Curtis carry on her legacy.
