- December 4, 1998
Based on Robert Bloch's novelization of an actual murder, this remake of the Hitchcock classic is an audacious undertaking as one has to consider how to "improve" upon a film that's an icon in its genre. As producer Brian Grazer says about the film's director, "There are only a few filmmakers in the world who can get away with it, and Gus is one of them."
The story, in case you don't know, has a fleeing thief stop off at the Bates Motel where she meets a creepy guy who's a little too fond of his mother and unwisely decides to take a shower.
