Fantastic rewatch for me.Really enjoyed this film and all the performances.
ANTHONY PERKINS NEED I SAY MORE HE WAS SO FRICKIN CUTE IM CRY
I never get bored of watching this. The Bluray is fantastic, both video and audio.
Google celebrated Saul Bass' birthday with a doodle, so I celebrated by watching one of the most famous movies featuring his titles. I think I've seen this thing a dozen times in the last 6 months but it never gets old and it's always a great watch. This first thing that needs to be mentioned is Perkins performance. He straight up steals this movie and makes it the creepy masterpiece that it is. However, even though I never hear anyone…
Psycho for some people automatically receives 5 stars. When looking at the quality of the filmmaking and performances I can understand that. It's expertly crafted by one of the true greats Alfred Hitchcock.
With that being said you may wonder why on this re-watch I'm only giving it 3 1/2 stars. The explanation is actually quite simple, and it's one I've applied to some other classic suspense films I've seen. It's basically a case of it works better if you…
No pensé que esta película me fuese a atrapar con tanta fuerza. Psycho es una película que esta muy bien realizada, y que maneja un guion muy bien elaborado para 1960.
Yo sabia que Norman Bate es considerado todo un icono del cine, y al verlo yo mismo entendí porque.
Alfred Hitchcock en todo su esplendor.
I had the unfortunate problem of already knowing the ending so it took all the suspense. After Chernobyl Diaries, this was more than perfect, there's just no comparison. The movie was amazing, Alfred Hitchcock knows what he's doing there's no doubt and the shower scene is amazing as I expected.
The ultimate call-back classic horror film; what else is there to say?
If I did a list of Shame list, this would probably be at the top.
Due to its pop culture assault, I never felt the need to see this, and it didn't appeal to me enough beyond that. With this feeling building up over the years, I knew I would likely be disappointed on initial viewing.
However, Psycho is quite beautifully impressionistic and brooding. Hitchcock lovingly captures Perkins and Leigh, and the black and white was a grand choice, adding…
Even some 33 years after his death, Alfred Hitchcock is one of the most daring film makers in the world.
Psycho is great evidence of that.
The shrieking score that basically puts you on edge as the opening credits start to role
The mesmerising shower scene. Where the camera disappears down the drain and then zooms out from Janet Leigh's eye. Mesmerising.
That office conversation between Perkins and Leigh, sheer electricity.
Hitchcock has never made a flawless film, and this certainly isn't flawless.
But Psycho, 53 years on, is still, simply put a stone cold classic.
¨I think I must have one of those faces you can't help believing.¨
Psycho is the master of all suspense thrillers and I will include it in my list of masterpieces. It was way ahead of its time and continues to impress today. This is where the term Hitchcockian came from to describe these psychological horror films that have been inspired by the great Hitchcock. It`s been over 50 years since Hitchcock directed this film, and horror directors are still…
