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

A film that you see once, and never forget...

“I am a huge fan of Hitchcock, and have really liked all of the movies of his I have seen so far. My top 5 favourites are Vertigo, North By Northwest, Rear Window, Rebecca and this masterpiece. Before I saw this, I considered Vertigo as his masterpiece. After seeing this movie, I think Psycho outshines Vertigo.

Psycho is a film that you see once and never forget, and one of the few movies out there that has left me traumatised. The infamous shower scene is without doubt one of the most terrifying murder scenes in any film. When I first saw that scene on the 100 Greatest American Films, I was so terrified and I admit it I have never recovered. I had a similar experience watching the Disney film Sleeping Beauty with Maleficent enticing Aurora to the spinning wheel, and Mrs Gulch tur” read more

"18.10. 2023 It is truly a privilege to see Alfred Hitchcock's cult classic in a theater. The copy I saw was fortunately the original film copy and not one of those soulless "polished" copies we often see nowadays. Film theaters always offer the most impressive watching experience and there's something about great horror classics that makes them especially unique experiences when you see them on the big screen. Hitchcock always created something new when he was making films and "Psycho" is defin"
