Jamie Lee Curtis re-creates her mother’s famous ‘Psycho’ shower scene
LOS ANGELES — Like mother, like daughter, even when it comes to a brutal scene of murder.
Jamie Lee Curtis’ career began with a horror movie, “Halloween,” in 1978.
It was almost kismet that she would be the star of that film, a slasher flick that owed so much to “Psycho” 18 years earlier. “Halloween” even had a character named Loomis, based on “Psycho’s” Sam Loomis.
That Hitchcock classic is best known for a scene in which a character played by Janet Leigh, is stabbed to death in a shower.
Curtis paid tribute to her mother’s iconic moment in an Instagram post on Tuesday, where she posed as Leigh’s character in the shower, holding up a photo of her mother in the scene for comparison.
The actress told her Instagram followers that the scene was being re-created in her new Fox series “Scream Queens.”
