Psycho '98 has been critically panned by both reviewers and movie audiences and is universally reviled; often because it is believed to be an unnecessary remake of an iconic, beloved film, but also because of director Gus Van Sant's decision to copy every single frame of the original in his homage to the Hitchcock classic.
This is largely considered the first of what will become many remakes of classic horror films, though the trend doesn't really begin taking off for several more years.

Gus Van Sant makes a cameo appearance as a man talking to another man in a cowboy hat. This is a nod to Alfred Hitchcock's cameo in the original Psycho as a man walking across the street. Van Sant is uncredited in the film in this capacity.
Rose Marie provides the voice for Norma Bates in this film.
