Actress Catherine O’Hara has set the internet alight after re-creating the iconic scream scene from “Home Alone 2” nearly three decades after the film’s release.

The nostalgic callback was first featured in a YouTube tribute to the film’s late director John Hughes, but has since been shared by a TikTok fan account, where it’s amassed about 3.5 million views.

The clip shows O’Hara, 66, re-creating the famous moment from “Home Alone 2: Lost In New York” where Kate McCallister looks into the camera and shrieks “Kevin!” after realizing her son is indeed lost in the Big Apple. The “Beetlejuice” star then hilariously faints just like she did in the 1992 Christmas classic.

Her cinematic shoutout made a splash among “Home Alone” fans — and her more recent “Schitt’s Creek” following.

“She still did it exactly the same! I love this,” fawned one fan of O’Hara, who played Moira Rose on “Schitt’s Creek.”

Another commented, “I hope she knows what an icon she is.”

“Repeat after me ICONIC,” wrote TikTok influencer thatboycollins.

Despite the landmark role, many “Schitt’s Creek” fans were completely unaware that O’Hara starred in the “Home Alone” series.

“I just found out that Kevin’s mom in Home Alone.. and Moira Rose from Schitt’s Creek.. are played by the same actress,” wrote one flabbergasted fan on Twitter.

Another lamented, “It took me 5 seasons of watching Schitt’s Creek to realize that Moira is Kevin’s mom from home alone.”

Speaking of which, O’Hara memorably honored her “Schitt’s Creek” character Moira Rose during the Emmys 2020 virtual award show in September by sporting a face mask embroidered with a small rose in reference to the family’s floral surname.
