I don’t know why I rewatched this.
I shouldn’t have but I did.
It’s a Spooktober watch so that’s good.
As soon as the film started I was in pain just knowing what would happen.
I mean this film stuck with me.
I remember everything beginning to end.
The first time I watched this I had heard it was one of the most disturbing films ever made but I still watched it. An hour in I was confused because…
Ok so my main flaw with this movie is it dragged for a few scenes when Lucy and Jake are talking in the car but as soon as they get to the parents house everything took a turn and I was invested the whole way through.
This was a ride.
I mean I didn’t expect it to go where it did.
The ending is just insane.
The visuals are the high point for me.
The way Kaufman shoots the snow…
A classic in horror.
The shower scene is one of the most classic scenes in anything.
Anthony Perkins gives an amazing performance as Norman Bates another iconic character.
Janet Leigh as well gives an amazing performance as Marion Crane.
That final smile at the end is a perfect ending.
The constant shots of the house overlooking the motel are just beautiful.
The scenes when Norman is dragging the cars into the swamp look amazing.
The tension is amazing.
Another Spooktober watch.
This film is full of color.
From the opening shots in the airport to the shots of the ballet school and the shots of the window all look amazing.
My favorite shot is the opening though.
As Suzy starts walking towards the door and the Goblin theme plays whenever she gets near the door then as soon as she opens the door she’s taken into this mystical world.
Goblin’s score fits the tone of this…
