Psycho (Special Edition)

Psycho (Special Edition)

Classic, chilling and unquestionably brilliant. Hitchcock was at the top of his game when he made this, Vertigo and North By Northwest and Psycho, his masterpiece of horror and suspense has never been eclipsed. Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh would never outgrow their roles as Norman Bates and Marion Crane and this film's multiple iconic images have been oft imitated (most famously by Gus van Sant's shot-by-shot remake). Hitchcock had a knack for touching on universally terrifying things and Psycho's shower scene is one of his most powerful - think about it the next time you're in the shower - you're alone, naked, defenseless...what's might be on the other side of that curtain? Despite being made in 1960, it's story is still chilling and evocative. I still get scared getting into the shower to this day.
