Jamie Lee Curtis pays homage to her mother.

On Tuesday, the 62-year-old actress starred in a costume-themed “Halloween Kill” premiere dressed as one of her mother’s iconic characters.

The star’s mother, Janet Leigh, was a horror icon in her own right and was probably best known for her appearance in Alfred Hitchick’s “Psycho” as Marion Crane in 1960.

Curtis praised her mother by copying one of Lee’s looks from the film.

The actress wore a powder blue button-up dress with black heels and a matching bag. To complete the look, Curtis wore a short blonde wig and carried a bloody shower curtain.

“Honor my mother for all her brutality … I meant glory!” She joked in the caption. “PREMIERE PARTY TIME!”

“I praise my beautiful late mom, Janet Leigh, but … it’s a bit more meta,” Curtis told Entertainment Tonight at the premiere. “I’m actually Scarlett Johansson in the movie Hitchcock, just like Janet Leigh. It’s a meta because it was a black and white movie and I didn’t know the color of Janet Leigh’s dress.”

Curtis added that “Hitchcock” taught her that the dress was actually blue, and she foamed a bloody curtain so as not to be confused with a 1950s housewife.

“It’s actually pretty sticky and it stains,” the actress said of fake blood. “My secret for those who are interested is here: Dishwashing liquid. Like a good dish, soap actually produces fake blood.”
