Jamie Lee Curtis, Scream Queens

FOX, Jamie Lee Curtis/Twitter

Just when you couldn't get more excited for Scream Queens, Jamie Lee Curtis goes and tweets the above picture. Thanks, JLC. Seriously, thank you! The picture is an homage to her mom the star of Psycho, and it's perfect.

Janet Leigh, Curtis' mom, was nominated for an Oscar and won a Golden Globe for her role as Marion Crane in Psycho. If you've seen Psycho, you know the infamous shower scene Curtis is paying homage too. Heck, even if you haven't seen Psycho you know the scene. It's classic and many other movies and TV shows have given nods to the Alfred Hitchcock shot. Now it's Curtis' turn.

"Recreated Mom's PSYCHO shower scene 4 a special ep of @ScreamQueens," she tweeted.
