Jamie Lee Curtis Recreates Mom's Psycho Shower Scene For Scream Queens

For an upcoming episode of Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens, Jamie Lee Curtis (True Lies, Halloween) is recreating her mother, Janet Leigh's, famous shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960).

Curis announced the news via twitter, striking the same screaming pose dear old mom mad while being slashed to death by the crossdressing serial killer Norman Bates. That scene was shot over seven days and utilized over 75 different camera angles. The whole set had removable walls to allow close-up shots from every angle. Hitchcock even had a large showerhead custom built and then blocked the spout in such a way that he could get a close-up of the water pouring out without it hitting the camera.

Check out the image in the tweet below.
