  • Stephen Rebello’s The making of Psycho is a great book, one of the best behind the scenes of a classic flick tomes ever. Looking forward to this flick, hope it will be a good companion piece to the film that truly created the modern horror film.

  • Why are they making this into a movie? Nothing too crazy happened on the set of Psycho.

    They should do the making of “Marnie” about Hitch’s obsession with Tippi Hedron.

  • Nobody on planet earth will go see a movie with that title, so here’s some alternates:

    ALFRED
    SUSPENSE
    THE SHOWER SCENE
    THE HORROR MOVIE
    FAKE BLOOD
    THE ORIGINAL
    MASTER OF BATES
    SHOWER CURTAIN
    CURTAINS

  • This again? Didn’t Gus Van Sant do a shot-for-shot identical re-make of Psycho a few years back? More intellectual bankruptcy out of Hollywood.

    • Yes, he did. And it was terrible. However, this isn’t another remake. It’s about the making of the original. Still, have to question who lit this one.
