About the Film
Alfred Hitchcock's landmark masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose old dark house and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. No one knows that better than Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), the ill-fated traveler whose journey ends in the notorious "shower scene." As first a private detective, then Marion's sister (Vera Miles) searches for her, the horror and the suspense mount to a terrifying climax where the mysterious killer is finally revealed.
The original slasher movie
If you have not seen this before, get yourself nice and comfy with no distractions. Then prepare to manipulated and terrified by the master of suspense, Hitchcock. One reviewer said it seems contemporary. That's because just about every other movie of this genre has used its ideas and motifs. Some might have got close for shocks but as an example of the art of cinema it's in a league of it's own.
A must see for all Hitchcock fans. Well, any fans of film for that matter. If it was in colour, it woul seem like a contempory film. So ahead of it's time, like all of his films. Brilliant.
This is not only my favourite Hitchcock movie, but my favourite movie of all time! everything about is sheer perfection and anyone who appreciates good movie-making needs to see this movie! It's mysterious, it's atmospheric and it's still bloody scary! Love it!!!!
