Dont forget that during Man on the Moon Jim Carrey, in character as Andy Kaufman, dressed up as a woman with a wig and ran out of the house at a tram or three wielding a fake knife.

In the vid it states they replaced the rotting wood from the original house. I wonder if anyone kept pieces of it. That would be cool to have.

Informative video, thanks for posting!

Where does the shot-for-shot remake fit into all that?

Also, why was it relocated for the sequel? Too much other stuff nearby, limiting camera angles?

I'm not sure when they moved it for the sequals, I know the original Motel from the first film was torn down a while after the original, they moved the house for Psycho II and re-built for the sequals, Not sure why the moved it but maybe it was because there were too many nearby things...they also had to repair it because it was falling apart.

Gone but not forgotten.
I have some pics somewhere around my house of my friends and I running around inside the place.

Just a tidbit - When I worked at Amblin we used to take the cart up to the house all the time and you could always count on finding beer cans and underwear - seems this is the most popular sex spot on the lot.
