    Well, making an industry out of _one_ idea doesn't always pan out. And trying to follow in the steps of Hitchcock is a bad idea. Me, I'm waiting for the remakes/sequels of The Seventh Seal and 8 1/2! I told a guy, about a remake (I omit the title on purpose), that the remake was bullshit -- and he told me that they had made far more money than the original had, so according to him, it was a success!
