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.
