During last night’s discussion of The Lovely Bones between Time‘s Richard Corliss (l.) and director Peter Jackson (r.) at the DGA screening room on W. 57th. Corliss said at one point that the film could almost be Psycho as told by Janet Leigh’s Marion Crane from death, especially given (a) the nerdy-normal creepy killer, (b) Crane’s sister Lila (Vera Miles) rummaging around the killer’s home for evidence in the third act and finding something big, and (c) the killer arriving home before she’s finished, forcing her to try and hide/escape.
