The Late Late Show is getting into the spooky spirit tonight with Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis making an appearance.

The True Lies star will chat with Ryan Tubridy about her return to the 'Halloween' film franchise later this month.

The Hollywood star attended Dublin's Light House Cinema for a special screening of the movie ahead of its release in cinemas across Ireland on Friday, October 19.

In 1978, Curtis was launched to fame when she played the role of Laurie Strode in John Carpenter's classic horror.
