    This is a case of really good parts- not all, but lots of good parts- that never come together into great. The ending is pretty great, though. The cavalier psychiatrist with his, "now, let me explain what a transvestite is" speech and Perkin's stretched open mouth or the menacing end shot. Much of the film is on the dry side, though, and I've never found it to be a visually interesting film. Interspersed throughout are Arbogast's fall, the lecherous father…

    I think I would have been more impressed if I hadn't already known the big secret. The last shot of Norman's face was creepy as hell though.

    A masterpiece. The perfect bridge between suspense thriller and horror.

    I watched this American Film Institute film last week, but I haven't had time to post my review until today. The film is #14 - Psycho starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. This is his 3rd of 4 total movies on this list, and by far his most famous.

    Marion Crane (Leigh) works at a real estate office in Phoenix, Arizona. After returning from lunch, which had been a secret rendezvous with her boyfriend, a…

    "A boy's best friend is his mother."

    My adventure into untouched film territory continued tonight as I decided to watch my second black and white film, Psycho, a film I put off watching for much too long. Be warned: the following review is a rambling of random thoughts.

    I'm pretty sure I went into the movie with the wrong mindset to begin with because right away I thought to myself, "This film is so cliché." A little while later I…

    A classic, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho is one of the greatest thrillers of all time. I knew the ending to Psycho, and I was still fascinated the whole way through. It is gripping the whole time, and will leave you haunted when you get to the amazing ending. This film is very well shot, written, acted, and most of all directed by the legend Hitchcock.

    Watch Psycho, before you die, you gotta watch it at least once.

    Surpreendente se levarmos em conta a época em que foi feito. Clássica cena do assassinato no chuveiro com uma trilha sonora ótima nessa parte em particular. Explora bem a psicologia.

    Welcome everyone to the birth of the slasher film and one of the finest examples from the genre. Yes it is famous its 'Shower Scene' but there is so much more to it than that be it the acting, score, suspense or the great intrigue into the mind of a maniac this great film would take nearly two decades to be rivaled by the one and only 'Halloween' and that says it all really.
