Rihanna is Marion Crane in a new series of preview images from Bates Motel.

The singer-actress looks pitch perfect as a modern incarnation of the iconic scream queen, originally made famous by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 horror film, Psycho.

In one photo, Rihanna-as-Crane arrives to the infamous motel, drenched in the rain as a neon sign looms ominously in the background.

In another, the character checks into the roadside motel, meeting Norman Bates for the first time and sealing her grisly fate.

Rihanna will appear in a multi-episode arc starting March 27. According to executive producer Kerry Ehrin, the series will follow Hitchcock's original plot, in which Crane steals money from her boss to run away with her boyfriend Sam Loomis.
