Beginning and ending with a pair of shower frissons, this brazen reworking of Psycho is most striking for its sheer audacity, and actually lifts that film's most shattering device. But having achieved this coup, the film degenerates into near-farce, punctuated by a number of hollow audience-grabbing moments which hang together not at all. Ultimately, the film amounts to little more than a consummate study of suspense technique, all dressed up with nowhere to go.
