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.

Scarlett Johansson is a scream as Psycho star Janet Leigh in her new film, Hitchcock, which tells the story of the making of the classic horror movie in 1959.
Filming Pyscho's iconic shower scene had its challenges, Johansson 27, tells V magazine in a new interview.
"We only had the luxury to shoot the scene for a day, and everybody was feeling very nervous because it involved water and nobody wants the actor to get wet," she says. "They were concerned with modesty and all these things – but I don't care about any of that stuff and Janet Leigh never did either.

To star in the upcoming Hitchcock, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel had to channel classic Hollywood glam – well, at least one of them.
In the film, which tells the story of legendary director Alfred Hitchcock's life and marriage at the time he was making his 1960 horror classic Psycho, Johansson, 27, and Biel, 30, play the parts of that film's leading ladies, Janet Leigh and Vera Miles, respectively.
"When we took that still of Scarlett behind the wheel and put it up against the still of Janet behind the wheel in Psycho, it was eerie," says Hitchcock director Sacha Gervasi. "The extent to which Scarlett was able to channel Janet [was] a real surprise. She brought it in such a way that no one really anticipated."
As for Biel, embodying Miles – a longtime Hitchcock collaborator who had infuriated the mercurial auteur when she dropped out of his Vertigo to have a baby – proved more of a stretch.

Sir Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar for playing one of the biggest psychos of all time, Hannibal Lecter, in 1991's The Silence of the Lambs.
Now he's playing the man who directed the movie that had all of America screaming, Alfred Hitchcock, at the time the Hollywood legend was making his classic 1960 film Psycho.
Here, in this first look from the movie Hitchcock, which began shooting last Friday (Hitch would have loved the date, Friday the 13th), Hopkins, 74, is seen as the bald, portly and droll 60-year-old.

Movie history proved golden at this year's Oscars – what with the winning The Artist and Hugo, as well as the nominated My Week with Marilyn – so, what's next?
How about a look-back to Tinseltown's glorious and goriest past with Scarlett Johansson and Anthony Hopkins, who are set to costar in the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, reports Variety.
Johansson will play leading lady Janet Leigh, who took the screen's most famous shower in the 1960 classic of its genre. James D'Arcy (Madonna's W.E.) will play Anthony Perkins, whose acting career never quite recovered after he was typecast as Norman Bates, a motel owner with something of a mother complex.
