Psycho 1960

From Amazon: At last--a great American movie available on video for the first time in its original aspect ratio. For all the slasher pictures that have ripped off Psycho (and particularly its classic set piece, the "shower scene"), nothing has ever matched the impact of the real thing. More than just a first-rate shocker full of thrills and suspense, Psycho is also an engrossing character study in which director Alfred Hitchcock skillfully seduces you into identifying with the main characters--then pulls the rug (or the bathmat) out from under you. Anthony Perkins is unforgettable as Norman Bates, the mama's boy proprietor of the Bates...

Psycho Movie Review by BillyBob (3/16/2013)

From its sexually-charged opening sequence featuring Marion & Sam in a sleazy hotel room, to its shocking "slice'n'dice" shower scene in cabin #1 at the Bates Motel, 1960's Psycho (as far as horror movies go) has got to be one of the most influential and imitated (but never yet matched) maniac-killer pictures of...

Psycho Movie Review by Zoltan (11/21/2010)

Amidst all of the mounting terror and murder that takes place in Psycho's story there's one brief, but very powerful scene that occurs within this classic tale of real-life horror which I think stands on its very own.

This scene takes place shortly after Marion's sister, Lyla, and Sam return to the Bates Motel, posing as...

Psycho Movie Review by Movie Addict (3/14/2010)

Picking the best Hitchcock film to watch is an exercise that will totally frustrate you. There are so many great ones. When it comes to terror, no film can beat this one. Rear Window may edge it out (only by a hair) for excellence, but not for sheer terror.

I really didn't recall the humorous set up in the beginning with...

Psycho Movie Review by Derringer (10/30/2009)

I believe that the movie PSYCHO would've never been made (as it so impressively stands) had it not been for ALFRED HITCHCOCK. PSYCHO was certainly a risky movie-project for any Director to tackle considering its horrifying subject matter (on various levels), and the year (1960) that it was released.

And, it took someone...

Psycho Movie Review by Jarrod (4/23/2008)

The significance of 'Psycho' cannot be understated. It is the only one of Hitchcock's films that could reasonably be called horror, and it did have a huge impact on that genre, loosely inspired by Ed Gein, and based on a novel by Robert Bloch. It was, perhaps, the first slasher flick. It is also a masterpiece of pacing...
