Apart from the references to “Psycho” in “Halloween Kills,” Jamie Lee Curtis took the salute to her late mother, Janet Leigh, to a whole new level at the premiere. Curtis first teased the look in a post on her Instagram page, which showed her dressed up as Marion Crane, played by Leigh in “Psycho.” Marion, of course, was horrifically stabbed to death by Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) in a dizzying shower scene in director Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic chiller.
In the Instagram photo, Curtis transformed into Marion by wearing a blonde wig and blue dress and completed the ensemble with a faux blood-stained shower curtain. Curtis’ photo was accompanied by the caption, “Honoring my mother in ALL her gory…I meant glory! PREMIERE PARTY TIME!” However, during the premiere, Curtis revealed that she had another source of inspiration for her costume.
