Infamous for its shower scene, but immortal for its contribution to the horror genre. Because Psycho was filmed with tact, grace, and art, Hitchcock didn't just create modern horror, he validated it.

A brilliant technical exercise, an intimate character study, and the ultimate variant on the premise "boy meets girl."
Paramount won't let anyone enter theatres where Psycho is playing after the picture starts. No one will want to leave before it is over.
The obvious thing to say is that Hitch has done it again; that the suspense of his picture builds up slowly but surely to an almost unbearable pitch of excitement.
After half a century of terror, Psycho is still ensuring that no one feels safe in the shower.
Hitchcock is the most-daring avant-garde film-maker in America today.
The best that can be said is there are bats in the belfry and a well-preserved corpse in the basement. What else can one do but scream?
Psycho continues to be thrilling to this day.
The film has its authentic moments of visual shock that make you sit up with sheet whistling admiration... I just feel Hitchcock has over-rated what he was up to in Psycho.
The legendary director's best picture.
Even now, it's distinctly unnerving.
groundbreaking and ahead of its time
An absolute work of art.
A seminal classic of horror by master Alfred Hitchcock, with some of the most memorable iconic scenes in the history of Cinema. Tense, horrific and a superb lesson in filmmaking, it offers well-constructed characters, a lot of revealing dialogue and a huge regard for details.
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 irrelevant in this day and age when the concept of multiple personalities is common knowledge. This is countered however by the brilliantly creepy final shot of Perkins as "mother", who wouldn't even hurt a fly...One of those films that I still find gripping every time I see it.
What can one say about one of America Cinemas great movies. Classic film from the master of suspense. Iconic scenes and acting abound!
