15 Psycho

See all showtimes for all Southampton cinemas >>

After all the hype, the counter-hype, the teaser trailers and the lack of press screenings and publicity, Gus Van Sant's reappraisal of Hitchcock's masterpiece is a big disappointment. Vince Vaughn is hopelessly miscast as Norman Bates (now a limp-wristed, giggling young man who isn't the least bit threatening), the mummy's boy who gives Anne Heche's fraudulent secretary a fright in the shower. The addition of a masturbation scene is made even more awful by some very suspect sound effects, but on the whole this is pretty close to the original. The famed shower scene is something of a washout in the new version, spiced up slightly for the '90s with shots of Heche's flesh hither and thither. Not so much Psycho as Mildly Demented.
