This has always been one of my favorite classic horror movies. Alfred Hitchcock’s film adaptation of Robert Bloch’s novel of the same name is still a masterpiece. The details of this movie are exquisite, they definitely don’t make them like this anymore.
The normal life aspects take a piece of reality, then throw in the macabre. I love how the rich guy is carrying around $40K and Marion just puts it in her purse like there’s nothing wrong with carrying that much cash around town.
The water coming out of the showerhead is still an amazing shot. I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved it. It’s just so random. The drain shot is good, too. And the thing that makes me shake my head is the deep valley in the mattress.
Interesting fact about Psycho, it predicted my birthday. Yes, Alfred Hitchcock subliminally told my mom ten years before that she’d have me on April 2, 1970. The number on the sign in the Used Car lot is proof; 4270. With that being thrown out there, I’m giving Psycho 5 out of 5 Stars. If you’ve never seen it, something I can’t imagine anyone missing, you have to find it and watch it, truly amazing, and make sure it’s the one from 1960, not the remake in 1998.
