    Yes, it carries your attention. No, it's not particularly believable. No, I don't want to watch it again.

    One of the most outright manipulative horror movies I’ve ever seen. In fact, it’s almost a meta-movie. The joy is less in the story itself than it is in watching Hitchcock deconstruct his own tropes. The thing of it is, it’s not doing it for laughs (a la Cabin in the Woods), and it never feels forced. The genius is that you really do feel as though Marion and Norman could have had a whole movie built around them. It…

    To state the obvious: this is a masterclass in film-making. There is no point in even explaining what it does right, because let's face it, you all know and it's a classic for a reason. But why only a 3.5? Well I'm not the biggest Hitchcock fan, to be quite honest. Beyond the surface, I don't sense much deeper meaning in his work (Vertigo being somewhat the exception). Sure, people have talked about themes/motifs of sexuality, voyeurism, mothers...among many others.…

    Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho is a fucking sexual movie, and i adore it with all my heart! Funnily, another horror movie, House On Haunted Hill, inspired Hitchcock to make this in the first place in black & white, and on a lesser budget. I love that little piece of trivia considering both movies mean so much to me. However I didn't see Psycho until much later in my life, and when i got to it... boy was the wait worth it.

    Psycho…

    Psicose é o tipo de filme que muitos "fingem" que já assistiram por conhecer a clássica cena do chuveiro. Corrigi minha falha de caráter, finalmente, devido ao meu Desafio dos Filmes e fica claro porque Hitchcock é um dos expoentes máximos da sétima arte.

    Os tempos são outros e algumas coisas como as atuações em cenas de luta ficam muito datadas, mas o roteiro e a trilha sonora são as forças motrizes desta bela obra de Tio Alfred.

    Menos um na minha lista da vergonha :)

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Well shit. Finally saw Psycho. I've seen the shower scene a million and a half times but I'm amazed how little I actually knew about this Hitchcock classic. For starters, I always thought the shower scene was the climax. Secondly, and an even greater shocker, I had no idea Norman was the killer. Probably the most fucked up case of an Oedipus Complex. It's hard to watch movies like this sometimes and judge them from a contemporary lens. It's a…

    Marion Crane sure is sexy but she's the worst liar ever.
