    For a film made in 1960, it still managed to creep me out. A real classic, not just for horror fans but for those who like great films!

    Great film. An actual "must-watch" for me. And don't fuss about stuff that's outdated. There's always gonna be outdated stuff in the movies. Get used to it.

    It doesn't hold up very well in terms of production value, shocks and scares but what it lacks in those departments it makes up for with excellent performances from the cast (including Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh) and a magnificent moody score by Bernard Herrmann.

    Not one of Alfred Hitchcock's best films (or best displays of cinematagraphy) but it isn't a bad film by any means.

    Hitchcock, master of intentionality, doesn't waste a single shot throughout this film. In my opinion, Psycho is not the best work in Hitch's magnificent filmography but it is the most well-known for a reason. When you talk about a stripped down and flawless piece of filmmaking, one can name very few movies that are on this level. It picks its moments well and undoubtedly delivers (i.e. the murder scenes, the final shot, the stuffed bird dialogue, etc.). Hermann's score is…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's funny to see so many reviews of this classic marked for spoilers because the shower murder scene of Marion Crane is perhaps the most prominent example of film being embedded into the cultural psyche - and then parodied and mimicked so much that it birthed an entire new genre. It is Hitchcock's greatest use of montage - each cut as an assault on the audience's senses, each as another slash of the knife to Crane's dripping, screaming face. Eisenstein's…

    There was a free screening at the National Gallery of Art today. It was awesome to hear people gasp at the big reveal at the end, to realize that Hitchcock can still shock audiences over fifty years later. I can only imagine the effect it had on audiences back when it was shown for the first time.
