Way overdue: Jamie Lee Curtis just recreated her mother Janet Leigh's famous “Psycho” shower scene, shot for shot, on the set of “Scream Queens.” Glory be! In fairness, she did pay (unintentional) homage to Leigh's most famous film with her starring role in John Carpenter's horror classic “Halloween,” but this is obviously a much more direct tribute. Now we can all finally scrub Gus Van Sant's shot-by-shot 1998 “Psycho” remake from our minds and move on with our lives.
Here's Curtis's post from Instagram:
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!
