Psycho

Alfred Hitchcock created a horrifying classic in 1960, starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh, so why Gus Van Sant felt the need to remake the movie in 1998 is still a mystery. An almost shot-for-shot remake of the original, the acting was subpar and the colored lighting takes away from the dull, eerie Bates Motel. Flick pick: the original.
