With her bags packed, the stolen cash in her purse and the promise of a fresh start ahead of her, she hurriedly leaves town. As night falls, she seeks refuge in an out of the way motel. Neither pure nor wicked, Marion fell victim to psychosis by sheer accident of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - Psycho is a suspense thriller remake of the Alfred Hitchcock classic. Viewers who have never seen the original are probably most likely to be satisfied by this very effective moody suspense film. Those familiar with the original will probably be busy comparing the two, and may not enjoy it as much. A well-made film that doesn't try to add anything new to the original.

Critic's Review Heading
Above Average
Gus Van Sant has honored the master (closing the film with a dedication to Hitchcock), but he hasn't duplicated him. This incarnation of PSYCHO isn't a forgery of a great work of art. It's more like a photo of a great work in an art history textbook -- a bit flat, but intriguing enough to make you want to get a better look at the real thing.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Marion Crane is a Phoenix, Arizona working girl fed up with having to sneak away during lunch breaks to meet her lover, Sam Loomis, who cannot get married because most of his money goes towards alimony.

One Friday, Marion's employer asks her to take $400,000 in cash to a local bank for deposit. Desperate to make a change in her life, she impulsively leaves town with the money, determined to start a new life with Sam in California.

As night falls and a torrential rain obscures the road ahead of her, Marion turns off the main highway. Exhausted from the long drive and the stress of her criminal act, she decides to spend the night at the desolate Bates Motel.
