Jamie Lee Curtis may thrive on a horror movie set, but that doesn't mean she can't find her way around a gender reveal.

Comedian and host Chris Hardwick and his wife Lydia Hearst are expecting a baby. They invited Curtis to assist in their Halloween-themed gender reveal party in a way that only she could.

In an interview with People, the expecting couple discussed the virtual yet spooky cameo appearance from the "Halloween" star and, of course, the villain, Michael Myers. In an Instagram post, Hardwick says there was no one other than the "Final Girl" to help them announce their "First Girl."

As Curtis sits in an faux cemetery, she starts the gender reveal while holding a jack-o'-lantern and expresses how "excited" she is.

"I am very excited that you're going to watch "Halloween Kills" tonight," Curtis adds while talking about her new film, which is the twelfth installment of the "Halloween" franchise. "But we're not just here for "Halloween Kills". We're here for another wonderful purpose and I've been asked to the person lucky enough to tell you what the gender of this little tiny baby is and I'm so excited and we're going to do it."

"You know what, I'm not going to do it by myself. I've got a partner in many crimes. I'm going to ask him to help, okay?" she adds.

Cue the Halloween movie theme song.

"Hey, Michael, come on," Curtis says as she calls the Michael Myers over for help. "It's a ... ," says Curtis, as Myers holds a tiny pumpkin with "GIRL" written across it.

Hardwick and Hearst hosted the spooky gender reveal party and were able to screen the "Halloween Kills" movie outdoors for friends.

"Lydia's birthday was in September but we decided to lay low and just have a sweet, intimate celebration with just the two of us," Hardwick said. "We were really missing getting together with our friends, though, so we figured we could have an 'Unbirthday Party' for her the next month during Spooky Season where we'd set up a screen outside with some cushy seats and watch the new "Halloween" film (we're both really big horror fans)."

"Initially, we were just going to quickly announce the baby's gender right before the film but when all was said and done, the reveal ended up headlining the party and I don't think the 'unbirthday' part ever came up once," he added.
