55 years since her mother appeared, naked and afraid, in Hitchcock's Psycho, Jamie Lee Curtis has done us the honor of recreating the scene... and in such style!

Of all of the characters in Ryan Murphy's sprightly, unapologetic horror-comedy Scream Queens, Dean Cathy Munsch has to be my favorite. For Scream Queens, Curtis recently paid loving homage to her horror heritage with a tribute to her mother's appearance in Hitchcock's Psycho...

Yup, Jamie Lee Curtis's mom is Janet Leigh, the ill-fated visitor of Norman Bates's Motel all those years ago. Here's the sweet Psycho-themed promo for the most recent episode of Scream Queens, 'Mommie Dearest.'

Janet Leigh's original shower scene, filmed over 55 years ago, is still effective today, even if its tasteful black and white composition lacks modern gore and explicitness.

Check out the original to see just how faithfully Jamie Lee Curtis and the Scream Queens team recreated her mother's original.

Jamie Lee Curtis teased the promo a month ago by posting this pic of herself holding her mother's iconic Psycho scream on Instagram.

I'm a little biased when it comes to this lady; as a lifelong horror fan, Jamie Lee Curtis is a goddess to me, a woman of such humor, poise and no-fucks-given charm that she steals every scene she graces with her presence. Seriously, though, how awesome is Jamie Lee Curtis?
