What's the point of remaking a true horror classic just to do all over again... "POINTLESS".

This movie kind of surprised me. When I heard they remade one of my favourite movies ever made, and even cast Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates, I thought "well, you can only **** with it." I was actually kind of surprised. While it is not nearly as good as the origional, Van Sant does a great job with it and it actually is alot better than Psycho III. I was very surprised by how good Vince Vaughn was at playing Norman. While he's no Anthony Perkins, he really gives his best performance of his career in this movie. I'd give it a shot,just don't expect it to be as good as the origional, great Hitchcock masterpeice.

Waste of time. Fans of the original, don't watch it. People who haven't seen either, watch the original. There is no point to remaking a movie exactly scene for scene. NO point!

An almost shot-for-shot remake of the original psycho, which begs the question, why? Despite the modern feel, I can't help but compare it to the original and if you're not bringing much new to the table, you can't touch Hitchcock.

A horrible remake?! WHAT A FUCKING TWIST!!

In all honesty, while I do feel that Psycho is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest horror film of all time and needs no remake, I thought that with the right director and with the right cast a remake wouldn't be so bad. Well if you have that little idea set in mind when going into Gus Van Sant's Psycho starring Vince Vaughn, you will be SEVERELY dissapointed. This is one of the most pointless and laughable excuses for a remake of such a beloved classic.

Well, let me start off by giving a bit of history behind this one. The year was 1998. This was just a few years before we had this big remake craze that we had today. Some jackass at Universal (who apparently had one too many martinis at lunch hour) said "Hey! Why not remake Psycho!" Oh, what a brilliant idea!

They then procee...
