Like mother, like daughter.
Jamie Lee Curtis paid homage to original "scream queen" Janet Lee during Tuesday's episode of Ryan Murphy's slasher comedy.
As Wallace University's scheming Dean Cathy Munsch, Curtis recreated Psycho's iconic shower scene ... in a black-and-white, of course.
But instead of (SPOILER ALERT if you someone still haven't watched Alfred Hitchcock's scary 1960 classic) being stabbed by Norman Bates masquerading as his dead mom, it's the Red Devil lurking behind the dean's curtain on Scream Queens.

The slasher-comedy The Final Girls opened in theaters Friday, and that very title begs horror fans to wonder who among the cast will be the actual last girl standing: American Horror Story vet Taissa Farmiga or Malin Ackerman, the actress playing the character in the film's movie-within-a-movie.

"Public attention was very important to my parents," Curtis, who currently stars in Fox's new dark comedy Scream Queens, says in this week's issue of PEOPLE. "They required that attention all the way through the end of their lives. Given what their backgrounds were and how their rise to fame was so meteoric, that sort of thing was important to them.

In fact, Curtis – who currently stars in Fox's new dark comedy Scream Queens – admits that she's something of a scaredy-cat when it comes to being frightened.
"I scare easily," Curtis says in the current issue of PEOPLE. "In fact, that's what my tombstone should say: 'Scared Easily' ... I just can't watch thrillers or violence or anything with the possibility of ominousness. I'm too jumpy."

Jamie Lee Curtis made headlines back in 2002 when she famously posed in More in her underwear without makeup or airbrushing in a move to call attention to the way Hollywood treats older actresses.
More than a dozen years later, the 56-year-old actress – who currently stars in Fox's new dark comedy Scream Queens – is still as outspoken as ever when comes to the issue of ageism in her business.
"I think it's humiliating to see the media frenzy when somebody gets older and they don't look the way they used to look," Curtis says in the current issue of PEOPLE. "It's like dancing with the devil. I've danced with it for a long time, and it's been okay. But I don't want to be punished for the natural evolution of being human, and I will be if I stay in it too long."

The Scream Queens star says that she had the idea for Instagram a few years before its creators did.

Scream Queens is like AHS taking a Mentos break.
The show is set on a college campus, which keeps it close to contemporary teen-slasher movies (and parodies of teen-slasher movies). If your memory goes back far enough and low enough, you may find yourself even thinking of the 1973 TV movie Satan's School for Girls – or, more recently, the 2000 remake with Shannen Doherty.

No matter how big a fan of Glee or American Horror Story you are, there's no way you're as excited to see Scream Queens hit the small screen as Jamie Lee Curtis.
"We've been working on the show for a long time, and today it's being born," Curtis told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb during an appearance on the fourth hour of Today on Tuesday.
She continued, choking up, "And I've got to tell you, if you don't think that I am so grateful at 56 years old to have this job at this moment in my life, when – as I've said – I've done advertising for people and I've done some really terrible movies and TV shows just to live my life.
"I just woke up this morning weeping at this moment in my life. At this moment for me," the actress revealed.
