Directed by Gus Van Sant
United States, 1998
Horror, Thriller


A remake of the 1960 film directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Although this version is in color, features a different cast, and has been set in a contemporary timeframe, it is closer to a shot-for-shot remake than most remakes, often copying Hitchcock’s camera movements and editing.
