Highly engaging, albeit disturbing horror

"A boy's best friend is his mother."It's impossible to discuss the narrative and storytelling brilliance of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho without divulging spoilers. The movie's twists and secrets are almost common knowledge over five decades after its release, but fair warning all the same. If you have not seen Psycho and are oblivious to its surprises, stop reading this review right now and watch th... read more

You'd be a psycho not to like this film

Psycho. Even the name is striking. For a film released in 1960, such a blunt title was daring. How apt, then, that it would be for such a daring film. This was cinema reinvented. This was cinema being borne into a new era. An era that would finally see the end of the Hays code. An era that saw many cultural shifts. An era that saw old Hollywood become new Hollywood. It was a brand new decade and w... read more

"OCTOBER 17: A movie I haven't watched in quite a while; it was due to be watched again soon. I feel like I don't watch enough Alfred Hitchcock in my life. FAVORITE SCENE: "We all go a little mad sometimes." At first I thought that scene was overly long, but I then I felt like it really set the tone for the rest of the movie. Norman Bates was very kind and attentive, but in a subtle stalker sort of way. He was also very handsome which added to his disarming persona. I can see why this movie was "

Scarier Than Fiction (46 movies items)

"Ed Gein Psycho is based on Robert Bloch's 1959 novel of the same name, which was loosely inspired by the case of convicted Wisconsin murderer and grave robber Ed Gein. Both Gein, who lived just 40 miles from Bloch, and the story's protagonist, Norman Bates, were solitary murderers in isolated rural locations. Each had deceased, domineering mothers, had sealed off a room in their home as a shrine to her, and dressed in women's clothes. However, unlike Bates, Gein is not strictly considered a se"

My Movie Highlights of the 1960s (+Watchlists) (90 movies items)

"As a fan of film noir I like the dark cinematography in this movie very much. The shock effects are not comparable to contemporary films, so I wasn't shocked a single time. Some shocking scenes, especially the last one, were even quite funny to me. And that's why I have to lower my rating a bit. It's definitely not one of my favourite Hitchcock movies but I still enjoyed it. My rating: 7,75"
