I Still Like It!
10 October 2001 | by (CT) – See all my reviews

Okay, maybe I'm biased. I've seen my other films and other than a few pleasant memories with the people involved, there wasn't much to remember. PSYCHOS, still, to this day, makes me laugh. For those who disliked it - well you just don't get it, do you? You need to know the movie references and also have a sense of humor. And a hat. I can hardly wait for the DVD release that is supposed to have lots of extras. I appreciate all the fan mail that I get and it's amazing what fans consider their favorite parts. Scary, ain't it? OK. The acting was bad, the script was practically rewritten on the set and the effects seemed amateurish - but this movie makes people laugh. That's what we set out to do. I liked it. It's no PHANTOM MENACE - whoops - CITIZEN KANE, I mean, but it doesn't pretend to be. However, I like to pretend I'm Orson Welles and eat fish sticks. But that's another movie.
