About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: [Hitchcock's] denouement falls quite flat for us. But the acting is fair. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Oct 8, 2014

Fresh: An unusual, good entertainment, indelibly Hitchcock, and on the right kind of boxoffice beam. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: 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. – Jack Harrison, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 16, 2017

Fresh: Hitchcock is the most-daring avant-garde film-maker in America today. – Andrew Sarris, Village Voice, Oct 8, 2012
