Catherine O’Hara has recreated that iconic screaming scene from Home Alone and it’s mesmerised us all.
You know, the one where Kevin’s mum finally realises she’s forgotten him.
30 years on and Catherine, who played Kevin’s mum Kate McCallister in the legendary Christmas movie, can still nail the very scene, with the star delighting fans by recreating it on TikTok.
From the polite smiles, to the sheer shock and, of course, that ‘KEVIN’ scream, Catherine is pure perfection alongside her onscreen alter-ego – even that dramatic faint was right on cue.
Fans were all for it and flocked to Twitter to share Catherine’s incredible TikTok, with pretty much everyone hailing her a ‘treasure’.
‘I can’t stop watching this,’ tweeted one huge fan and, well, same.
‘Catherine O’Hara remaking her #HomeAlone Kate McCallister… & I am here for it,’ said another fan.
One more was just as obsessed with the clip, as they tweeted: ‘I’ve watched this multiple times today and it does not stop being delightful and wonderful. Catherine O’Hara is a galactic treasure.’
Another said: ‘The fact Catherine O’Hara has a tik tok and does stuff like this kinda makes me want one.’
Catherine, who recently won an Emmy for her character Moira Rose in Schitt’s Creek, stars in Home Alone alongside Macaulay Culkin, who famously plays Kevin, and Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, who play thieves Harry and Marv.
The movie was released in 1990 and made a total of $476.7million (around £357m) making it the highest-grossing live action comedy until it was beaten by The Hangover Part II nearly two decades later in 2011.
The original film was followed by two sequels (Home Alone 2: Lost In New York and Home Alone 3) and reports have confirmed that Disney Plus is planning on making a reboot.
Home Alone director Chris Columbus isn’t so keen, though, and has said he thinks the upcoming reboot is a ‘waste of time’.
He told Insider: ‘It’s a waste of time as far as I’m concerned. What’s the point? I’m a firm believer that you don’t remake films that have had the longevity of Home Alone. You’re not going to create lightning in a bottle again.
‘It’s just not going to happen, so why do it? It’s like doing a paint-by-numbers version of a Disney animated film – a live-action version of that. What’s the point? It’s been done.’
Chris offered: ‘Do your own thing. Even if you fail miserably, at least you have come up with something original.’
