Curtis re-creates famous ‘Psycho’ scene.

When listing the most famous scream queens of the horror film genre, Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis is often labeled as “the original.” But as this picture reminds us, Curtis’s mom Janet Leigh was screaming up a storm 18 years before her daughter even met Michael Myers.She earned an Oscar nomination as “Little Miss Sunshine,” but for her first starring role on as a television series, Abigail Breslin is showing off a decidedly darker side. Curtis paid homage to her mother’s famous shower scene from Psycho in an upcoming episode of the Fox series Scream Queens and took a photo to commemorate the moment. It’s unexpected and delightful.” She said she had only one directive for Ryan Murphy and company: “If we’re going to go for it, let’s go for it.

Her mother Janet Leigh starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller and became known for the iconic shower scene in which she’s attacked by an unseen assailant. I’m such a huge fan of his.” I love “Glee,” “American Horror Story.” And my agent was like, “Settle down, you have to meet with him first and get the job.” I talked to him for an hour and a half, mostly I was just rambling about my life and boy drama. Despite giving her a lasting fear of showers, my mother always spoke highly of working with Alfred Hitchcock.” Curtis also praised her mother for being, “This astonishing beauty in this dark, dark world. She went on to tell Variety that her one rule for Murphy and Falchuk (who wrote the episode in question) was that they go the whole nine yards and recreate it as accurately as possible. “I have attempted to step out of the shadow of my parents for a long time”.

She returned to the movie franchise to reprise her role, not once or twice, but three times (but let’s forget about Halloween: Resurrection, shall we?). Scream Queens, which also stars Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Skyler Samuels, and Oliver Hudson, kicks off with a two-hour series premiere on Tuesday, September 22, at 8 p.m. on FOX. Everyone asks if it was nerve-wracking because I didn’t get the script until a few days before we came to set, but I knew whatever he was going to write was going to be funny. One night, I got locked out of my house and I called Billie (Lourd): “Can I come over?” I’m the youngest on the set, so I’m always asking them for guy advice. She’s always bringing juices for everyone and mothering everybody and wrangling everybody. “OK, everybody, we’ve got to film.” She’s iconic but doesn’t act all like how famous actors would act.
