Jamie Lee Curtis recreates mom's iconic "Psycho" image

Jamie Lee Curtis is finally following in her mother's footsteps.

Curtis, who will be in the much buzzed-about "Scream Queens," recreated her mom's shower scene from "Psycho" -- shot by shot -- for an episode of the upcoming show. She uploaded a teaser onto Instagram.

She wrote: "Just recreated, with help from the amazing crew, a shot by shot of my mother's famous shower scene from Hitchcock's PSYCHO for@screamqueensfox #screamqueens Ryan Murphy and co. wrote it into a special episode and it felt right!

"Honoring the Royal legend that is/was/will always be, Janet Leigh. Thought all fans of the genre would love it! #honorthymother @joaquin_sedillo show debuts in a week on FOX 8pm 2hour premiere!!!!"

Curtis' mother, Janet Leigh, was one of the original "scream queens" as the star of "Psycho." Leigh won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Marion Crane in the 1960 thriller, and was apparently so traumatized when she watched the iconic shower scene when Crane gets stabbed repeatedly that she stopped taking showers, instead taking baths.

She told the New York Times in 1995 that she panicked every time she stayed at places that only had showers.

"I make sure the doors and windows of the house are locked," she said, "and I leave the bathroom door open and shower curtain open. I'm always facing the door, watching, no matter where the shower head is."

We're glad Curtis wasn't too scared to recreate the scene. Will you tune into "Scream Queens" to watch the episode?
