Back when horror films were more than just jump scares, there was a little-known film called PSYCHO. This film is intriguing. It's a shame if the twist has been ruined for you or that famous scene (you know the one). I loved it when I watched it the first time, not knowing anything, and I greatly enjoyed it. This film is more than just one scene and you have to applaud the actor Anthony Perkins for his pitch-perfect nuanced performance. I'd definitely recommend it, at least for one screening, and all the better if you know nothing about it going in!

Considered one of the Top 10 classic 'English' movies (my researched #8). The perfect horror movie, and the only horror film in the top 60+ films; the next film being "Jaws" at #69. See my GerryD Lists for other classic movies.

If you are interested we talked about this movie at the Carlingwood Library Film Club. We discuss three movies a month and we meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the Month.

The best Alfred Hitchcock movie ever made. My heart pounded when Norman Bates as Mother came on the scene. Scary fun!

Norman Bates...the first in a long string of film characters loosely based on real life serial killer Ed Gein.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: This film contains a single naked body so blurred that it can scarcely be considered nudity. There are no cuss words and the "violence" is not violent. Anticipation, music, and shadows on the wall are where the horror comes from, but for some that'll be terrifying enough.
