Trivia

The opening shot zooms into the Westward Ho Hotel just north of downtown Phoenix. The corresponding shot in the original Психо (1960) shows the Heard Building, which at that time had a radio broadcast antenna atop it; but by the time of the remake, the tower had been removed, so Gus Van Sant used the Westward Ho, which still has one.

Goofs

In the hardware store, we see the lady that bought insecticide walk past Lila toward the front of the store, but never hear or see her leave. Arbogast has been standing outside the door with his face close to the glass watching Sam and Lila but he did not move to allow the lady to exit. Also, the bells on the door do not sound until Arbogast enters. See more »
