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: All those who still get a chill every time they step into a hotel shower, say aye. That, you see, is the power of Psycho. – Mary Elizabeth Williams,, Mar 7, 2001

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

scariest movie ever. the oldies are always the best

any alfred hitchcock movie is a classic. this is a great movie to see with friends in the middel of the nnight. it made me check to see if i locked all my doors.


This is a classic horror movie. I remember watching it with my neighbor and sister when we were little and it scared us to death. Then I studied it in school and really learned to appreciate what an art of work it is. Classic Hollywood; classic Hitchcock.

Thank you iTunes (for once)

This is a great start. Thank God iTunes is getting some classic movies. Here's hoping iTunes brings in more classics. I personally would like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid available for purchase.
