    Psycho is one of those classic movies that never get old. The renowned shower murder is always going to be the whip cream of the sundae for the movie. Hitchcock use of camera angle, music and precise editing turned this movie into unforgettable tale. What i love most about the film is that touch of humor and horror mixed in that twisted way. Compared to films in this generation many would classify this film as a bit of a comedy. During the shower scene they don\'t show you Marion getting stabbed but the stabs missed. Also, nudity was never show however having the murder scene in the shower made it a very intimate scene. Showing her seductively removing her towel but only showing her legs and back *************\'s brilliant use of shots. Also, after Marion dies and Hitchcock does an intense zoom of Marion open eye. As some say the eye is the window of the soul. His little tricks and techniques and a movie from that time is remarkable and applaud to Hitchcock work, highly recommending the movie to movie lovers.

    This is a fantastic movie. Such a creepy, psychological thriller, that even manages to frighten us today in the jaded age. The guy who plays Norman Bates is superb; his is the best psychopath performance I've ever seen.
