    Not to be confused with the 1987 Tv-Movie, but the series that is coming to A&E this March.
    Is anyone interested to watch it? I gotta say, the commercials already have me pretty interested.
    Oh, and Inb4masterbastion jokes run wild.

    Using the reputation of a classic film to market a (more likely than not) subpar thriller?

    Sounds like a typical Bates-and-switch to me.

    I'm actually excited for this. I think A&E needed to put more emphasis on the fact that this is based off of the movie Psycho and not a prequel set in the same continuity. I know lots of Psycho fans got angry because they think this is supposed to be set right before the movie.

    I'll stick to Robert Block's novel.

    As for the series, I find it difficult to believe that they will manage to top the maestro himself when it comes to directing and good screen writing...

    I don't think their intention is to do that.

    It should be, then they'd have my interest. ;)

    Get someone like David Cronenberg in there to write and direct...

    ....well it might end up a little too weird then, but still!
