    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Not since Gus Van Sant inexplicably directed a shot-by-shot remake of Hitchcock's "Psycho" has a thriller been copied with so little point or impact. show more

    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    The remake is a solidly crafted movie with a lot of good scares, but it also raises the question: Why even bother with an update? show more

    Rent the original. It tells exactly the same story, with a better cast and with special effects that are as good or better. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    The casting is weaker this time. Watching Peck crumble under fear and doubt was like seeing a skyscraper implode; Schreiber's more of a whipped puppy for most of the film. show more
