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

"Starting with embezzlement, this movie moves right into murder with one of the most famous murder scenes of all. And also introduces us to Norman Bates, such a common mommy's boy. The scene where the detective falls backward down the stairs is unexpected and disorienting. • Most well-known scene: the shower scene. • Trivia: The movie is based on a novel by Robert Bloch who based his novel on serial killer, Ed Gein. • Trivia: Janet Leigh (Marion Crane in the movie) is the mother of Jamie L"

“It's not much of a revelation to say that Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" is a classic. Many would even call it a masterpiece, and I suppose that's where I differ. There's no denying the incredible impact the film has had on the horror and thriller genres, as well as cinema as a whole. It is simply a great film. But "masterpiece" is a term I use sparingly, and there are even other Hitchcock films I find to be slightly superior. The plain truth is, time has had a bit more of an aging effect on Psycho than some other films of it's age. First and foremost, everyone knows the twist. If you've somehow managed to avoid it, I commend you for living deep under the crevices of the world's largest rock. The once shocking ending of the film is so deeply engrained into popular culture that it's unavoidabl” read more

"“Hitchcock uses so many different angles and shadows when he shoots Anthony Perkins. It’s slightly askew, showing a twisted mind, switch that’s flipped in the wrong position.” - Rose McGowan “This so changed the direction of career. He was identified with horror films and he kept doing sequels. I always felt badly about that because he was too good an actor to just be categorized as a horror film actor…. This is also a movie that had to be in black and white because that kind of g"

"28.12. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Omistamani, hyvälaatuiseksi muistamani DVD olikin letterboxattua pikselimössöä, joten "Yli 10 vuotta sitten viimeksi katsottujen viiden tähden elokuvien uusintakierros" -projektia varten oli hyvä tekosyy päivittää tähän hämmentävään leikkaamattomaan versioon, josta kukaan ei tiennyt mitään vielä pari vuotta sitten. Oletin itse asiassa, etten löytäisi tästä kuin kamalia virheitä, mutta olinkin vallan lumoutunut kerronnan suvereenista sujuvu"
