A shot by shot remake of Psycho - what's the fucking point?

This was a pointless waste of celluloid. If you're gonna remake any film, much less a classic - you should have something to add. The only thing that was added were Anne Heche's miniscule breasts and Vince Vaughn jacking off. Neither were necessary and only one was fun to look at.

Vince Vaughn did try his best to elevate this piece of tripe to a watchable film. I admit, it wasn't bad enough for me to change the channel. But the only reason I didn't was because of him. I think that Vince Vaughn is vastly under appreciated as a villain these days. I mean, he was passable as the hero cop in The Cell, but he was amazingly creepy as Lester Long in Clay Pigeons, even creepier as Norman Bates.

Gus Van Sant should be stopped, before he kills a classic again.
