Δεν ήξερα τίποτα για αυτήν την ταινία πέρα απ'την γνωστή σκηνή. Δεν ήμουν προετοιμασμένη για το πόσο με ευχαρίστησε ότι δεν ήξερα τίποτα, πόσο μου άρεσε η ιστορία και οι χαρακτήρες μέχρι το τέλος και πόσο καταπληκτικός ηθοποιός ήταν ο Anthony Perkins (με το που τον δείχνει έτσι που παίζει τον λίγο φλώρο μου θύμισε τον Andrew Garfield). Η γνωριμία με τον Norman Bates ήταν πάντως θεαματική. Ήμουν σίγουρη ότι ήταν μία χαρά παιδί, θα έτρωγα ένα σαντουϊτσάκι μαζί του στην βροχή άνετα.
I was thirteen the first time I saw Psycho. This was before I learned that the blood was chocolate syrup and scared me shitless. I probably hadn't seen this film in fifteen years, I hoped it would live up to my expectation, hoped it would translate, unlike the now comical The Birds. Hitchcock's Psycho was suspenseful but didn't have the same "I'm too scared to take a shower" appeal to it.
I've always kept an eye out for Alfred Hitchcock's…
I just bought the Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection on baby blu for 66.7% off. (Don't act like you're not impressed)
...Started with Psycho... blu-tiful.
What can you say? Fuckin awesome. Groundbreaking. Gorgeous. Brilliant. And Janet Leigh was put together reeeeaaaally well in 1960.
Hitchcock is the fuckin MAN!
Until tonight, I hadn't seen this since I was about 14 and didn't appreciate it then, so I thought I'd finally remedy that and give it the re-watch it deserves.
I didn't remember the twist at all, so it was pretty much a first time watch for me.
All I can say is - Wow. Amazing.
Gets better and better and better with each re-watch.
There is absolutely no point in contributing more words to Psycho, so I will skip everything else and just say that this is my favorite score ever.
A classic movie!

I'd love to go back in time and see this movie when it first came out. Before everyone knew who the killer is. Just see it fresh with no prior knowledge of what happens in the film. But that can never happen and it doesn't really matter because this film works whether it's a first-time view or if you've seen it a hundred times.
Not much I can add for this one ... It's a classic.
ARBOGAST, LOOK OUT!! AAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIII
