One of the best horror movies of all times. It was directed by Alfred Hitchock, whom I consider to be his best work. It's based on the book by Robert Bloch.
The film started out as an Marion Craine, played by Janet Leigh stole from her boss and ended up in a motel called the Bates Motel. The owner of the motel and you know the character by heart is Norman Bates, a man who likes to peep though the hole to the room next to the office.
The shower scene is a classic that worked very well because it used less blood. "Psycho" is the first of what I discribed as many shasher movies. Many of them in the 1980's.
"Psycho" get us the viewers under the skin and it won't let go. I saw the movie on American Movies Classics, and if you got that channel, chances are you'll be seeing it too.
Haven't seen this in theaters but it looks like the old copy I have at home. This is my favorite movie ever. Hitchcock is a genious and Perkins is so believable.
