General information

Rated 2 out of 5

The 1998 version of “Psycho” is a remake of the 1960 classic directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and directed by Gus Van Sant. The movie stars Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates, Anne Heche as Marion Crane, and Julianne Moore as Lila Crane.

The film received largely negative reviews, with many critics feeling that it was unnecessary and failed to live up to the original. The movie attempts to recreate many of the iconic scenes from the original film, but ultimately falls short of capturing the same level of suspense and terror.

One of the main criticisms of the film is the casting of Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates. While Vaughn is a talented actor, his portrayal of Bates lacks the complexity and depth that Anthony Perkins brought to the role. Anne Heche also fails to capture the same level of vulnerability and desperation that Janet Leigh brought to the role of Marion Crane.

The film’s attempts to recreate the iconic scenes from the original, such as the shower scene and the climactic confrontation between Bates and Lila, feel flat and lack the impact of the original. The decision to use the same script as the original also feels like a misstep, as the dialogue and pacing do not translate well to a modern audience.

Overall, the 1998 version of “Psycho” is a lackluster remake that fails to capture the magic of the original. While it may appeal to fans of the original who are curious to see a modern take on the story, it is unlikely to win over new fans or stand the test of time as a classic in its own right.
