This may be Hitchcock's best film, but it is certainly one of his most complete and iconic. Pulling no punches, Hitchcock crafts a dark and graphic macabre tale of murder and insanity that is completely tense throughout. The black and white photography gives the film an aged feeling, which adds to the overall feeling of decay and foreboding. Anthony Perkins also creates one of the most infamous and fearsome movie villains in Norman Bates.

Who doesn't love Psycho?
It's famous for being a controversial directorial change. It was pretty much a taboo for a director of Hitchcock's level to attempt a horror movie at that time, but I'm glad it paid off tremendously.

I don't know where to begin.
It has been documented that this film's making encountered heaps of problems. Scenes were cut, limitations were large and the anticipation was minimal. It was basically frowned upon by all movie goers at that time. But it worked. Everyone loved it. And that's why it's so brilliant.
I call this strictly a masterpiece, because the way it came together in the end makes me so happy. If anything were different, if another scene was to be added, it wouldn't be the same. That's why it's a masterpiece.
What no one ever talks about is the de...

Classic Horror - Classic Hitchcock

A brilliant film and a classic that has most definitely stood the test of time. It was enjoyable watching a black and white movie and then suddenly realising you didn't notice anyway. Even the actor's clothes didn't seem particularly dated - apart from those bras of Lila Crane (Vera Mills) - but hell, Madonna was wearing those things only a few years ago. What I love about Psycho (and a lot of the older thrillers/slashers) is that it manages to invoke fear and intrepidation without gallons of blood spurting around the room, bones being sawed with grizzly sound effects, close ups of heads exploding etc. Having said this, Psycho did set a new bar for 'violence' and 'sexuality' in movies (apparently Hitchcock had quite a time persuading the studio to let him make the movie). The musi...

"Psycho" by Yojimbo

Hitchcock's classic "comedy" featuring the world's most famous mother's boy is one of the most influential films ever made; every serial killer and slasher movie owes something to this, one of the true greats of cinema. Unfortunately, as the character of Norman Bates is SO infamous, this is one of those films I wish I could forget I had ever seen and watch it with fresh eyes, but it is still fascinating to watch the awkwardly shy and fresh-faced Anthony Perkins knowing how the story plays out, especially during the exchange between he and Janet Leigh in the parlour. The only minor flaw is the fact that the first act is stronger than the second inevitably meaning a slight anti-climax, especially since the final scenes include the psychiatrist's speech explaining all which is clearly irrele...
