    Horror Movie Remakes - Psycho

    Psycho (1960)



    American psychological horror film
    Directed and produced by Alfred Hitchcock
    Written by Joseph Stefano
    Starring Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, John Gavin, Vera Miles and Martin Balsam
    Based on the 1959 novel of the same name by Robert Bloch.

    The film centers on the encounter between a secretary, Marion Crane (Leigh), who ends up at a secluded motel after stealing money from her employer, and the motel's disturbed owner-manager, Norman Bates (Perkins), and its aftermath.

    The film initially received mixed reviews, but outstanding box office returns prompted reconsideration which led to overwhelming critical acclaim and four Academy Award nominations, including Best Supporting Actress for Leigh and Best Director for Hitchcock.
    Psycho is now considered one of Hitchcock's best films. Often ranked among the greatest films of all time, it set a new level of acceptability for violence, deviant behavior and sexuality in American films and is widely considered to be the earliest example of the slasher film genre.

    Psycho is based on Robert Bloch's 1959 novel of the same name, which was loosely inspired by the case of convicted Wisconsin murderer and grave robber Ed Gein.
    Both Gein, who lived just 40 miles from Bloch, and the story's Norman Bates, were solitary murderers in isolated rural locations. Each had deceased, domineering mothers, had sealed off a room in their home as a shrine to her, and dressed in women's clothes.

    The murder of Leigh's character in the shower is the film's pivotal scene and one of the best-known in all of cinema.
    All of the screams are Leigh's.
    It is often claimed that, despite its graphic nature, the "shower scene" never once shows a knife puncturing flesh.

    Psycho was unprecedented in its depiction of sexuality and violence, right from the opening scene in which Sam and Marion are shown as lovers sharing the same bed, with Marion in a bra.
    In the Production Code standards of that time, unmarried couples shown in the same bed would be taboo.
    The Shower scene had to be cut and recut many times.
    Another cause of concern for the censors was that Marion was shown flushing a toilet, with its contents (torn-up note paper) fully visible. No flushing toilet had appeared in mainstream film and television in the United States at that time.

    Director Alfred Hitchcock bought the rights to the novel anonymously from Robert Bloch for only $9,000, in U.S. dollars. He then bought up as many copies of the novel as he could to keep the ending a secret.
    When the cast and crew began work on the first day, they had to raise their right hands and promise not to divulge one word of the story. Alfred Hitchcock also withheld the ending part of the script from his cast until he needed to shoot it.

    The reason Alfred Hitchcock cameos so early in the film was because he knew people would be looking out for him, and he didn't want to divert their attention away from the plot.

    Walt Disney refused to allow Alfred Hitchcock to film at Disneyland in the early 1960s because Hitchcock had made "that disgusting movie, Psycho.'
    After Hitchcock's death in 1980, Universal Studios began producing follow-ups: three sequels, a remake, a television film spin-off, and a prequel TV series. In 1992, the US Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.


    Horror Movie Remakes - Psycho
    Psycho (1998)


    Psycho (1998)
    Director: Gus Van Sant
    Writers: Robert Bloch (novel), Joseph Stefano (screenplay)
    Stars: Vince Vaughn, Anne Heche, Julianne Moore

    A sign for the Bates Motel reads "Newly Renovated."
    When asked why he did a shot-for-shot, full colour remake of Psycho (1960), Gus Van Sant replied "So no one else would have to."
    When Gus Van Sant cameos in the same scene Alfred Hitchcock did in the original, he's talking to a man in a cowboy hat. Apparently it's supposed to be Hitchcock scolding Van Sant.
    The film was shot in six weeks, as was the original Psycho (1960).
    The last frame in the film is a skull that is superimposed over Vince Vaughn's face. This is the same skull used in the last frame of Psycho (1960), superimposed over Anthony Perkins' face.

    *collected from various sources.


    Original 4 thumbs up outta 5
    Remake 3 thumbs
    Who can ever forget Norman Bates and the Psycho theme !!
