#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Marion Crane steals a lot of cash from a man whom her boss is in business with. On the way to see her boyfriend, she stops off by an old motel, run by the odd Norman Bates. She is murdered in the shower. Her sister, boyfriend, and a private investigator try to find out where she is, while we learn more about Norman Bates.
Plot: A young female embezzler arrives at the Bates Motel, which has terrible secrets of its own. Although this version is in color, features a different cast, and is set in 1998, it is closer to a shot-for-shot remake than most remakes, Gus Van Sant often copying Hitchcock’s camera movements and editing, and Joseph Stefano’s script is mostly carried over. Bernard Herrmann’s musical score is reused as well, though with a new arrangement by Danny Elfman and recorded in stereo.

The most disposable movie in the history of cinema?This one is a strong contender!Why waste so much money for such a pointless useless work? The only difference between the HItchcock classic and this poor imitation is color,wide screen and Leila’s Walkman!!A movie which’s supposed to generate thrills and fear leaves me completely indifferent.
Now you’ re going to tell me it will urge the young generations to see the original?balderdash!This “psycho 1998” is a giant spoiler.
They could have done something different,for instance ,by casting an actor closer to Bloch ‘s Bates ,an obese man.They content themselves with an obnoxious rehash!A pox on it!and long live Alfred Hitchcock!
What Was The Point
This was a complete waste of everyones time and money. I would bet the only reason the studio wanted to remake this movie was so it was in colour and not black and white because people, for some absurd reason have an aversion to black and white movies.
It is literally shot for shot near on. Obviously the open credits are the same but even the first shot is the same if i remember correctly i was like what is going on. I think it follows this patten.
I have issue with remakes anyway as i alway feel like what was the point. We have Psycho if we want to watch it we can it, we didn’t need a colour copy. No one who likes psycho is ever going to enjoy this movie because they have seen the better version already.
It feels out of place too as i think it is set in like 1998 yet because they literally copy/pasted the script characters talk like they are in the 60s.
The studio knew that everyone loved Psycho and it is a masterpiece that is why it is shot for shot and near on word for word because they didn’t want to charge anything. So what was the point. We just have a bad version now.
Also the actor who played Norman was just so blah. Anthony Perkins has this magnetism where you want to know more about this character. He is sweet and kind when we first meet him and if just like an average person. In this movie Norman is more aggressive and much more built that Anthony Perkins. He comes across too strong where as Anthony Perkins played it subtle. He also isn’t acting great so that doesn’t help.
And Jesus H Christ the shower scene. This is one of the most famous scenes in cinema history and they made such a mess of it. It is shot like an absolute disaster, the woman playing Marion is acting so strange and it is such a bad performance i don’t understand how that happened. This is the scene when they should have realised it wasn’t working. They should have called it quits and left Psycho alone.
If you remotely like Psycho don’t watch this. And if you have never watched Psycho please watch the 1960s version even though it is in black and white. It is so much better.
