predestination was much better than all you zombies.  They added a lot more context and took out a good chunk (but not all) of the sexism.  I still think both kinda sucked though.

Frankenstein, Psycho.

The Frankenstein novel is kind of a boring travelogue -- but you can't beat the original movie (Karloff, not the Edison one).  And the Psycho novel is nothing remarkable.  Interestingly enough, the movie is a pretty straightforward adaptation... but Hitchcock made it a classic.
