solid snake -> Chilling horror (19/11/2006 5:46:20 PM)

The is one of the best horror films ever made. Anthony Perkins delivers an terrific peformance as pycho killer Norman Bates. However it never manages to be as god as the book.




evil bill -> RE: Psycho (21/11/2006 8:37:55 PM)

The best Hichcock movie ever ,that has become the bench mark by which most horror movies are now judged,Perkins will forever be rembered as Norman Bates,with a truly stand out preformance that has you feeling sorry for the killer,when he's finaly revealed.Great set pieces and brillant score are just the icing on this CLASSIC of all time.[sm=happy34.gif][sm=happy34.gif][sm=happy34.gif][sm=happy34.gif]

Amol -> A brilliant visionary movie. (26/9/2008 8:58:10 AM)

De Palma's Dressed To Kill(1980) is Better but that does not mean this movie is not brilliant, especially considering that this was made so much long ago. Most of the slasher movies made today do not deserve to be even compared to these two movies. The Superb 'Se7en(1995)' and Hannibal Lecter series (first THREE parts) are not slasher movies in any way and are in a class of their own.

Swifty170 -> Psycho (19/11/2008 1:19:39 AM)

One of the defining moments of the horror genre, Psycho probably contains the greatest 'reveal' in film history. This twist seems obvious now that it has been copied and parodied on numerous occasions, but it really would have been shocking at the time, and was so well concealed during the film that it is only at the end that anyone can be truly sure of what has taken place. The shower scene has also been the subject of much debate, and rightly so, as it's probably the best piece of film horror there's ever been. The transition from the hole of the drainage pipe to Marion Crane's dead eyes is genius. Oh and Bernard Herrmann's score is awesome. The remake of Psycho was pointless to the degree of being idiotic.




WiseGuy101 -> A BOY'S BEST FRIEND IS HIS MOTHER (4/2/2009 10:15:09 AM)

what a chillingly brilliant masterpiece. the cinematography is the best i've seen, the music is suspenseful and the acting from perkins is macabrely amazing. this is the first hitchcok ive seen and im officially committing myself to him.




deppfanatic -> Psycho (1/11/2009 5:36:21 PM)

A brilliant film, its amazing how Alfred Hitchcock.can tap into your subconsious when you watch this just hearing the music and watching the scenes flip to and thro: cutain, the knife the blood when your brain fills in the rest pure genius.




Whistler -> Psycho (31/10/2010 2:17:10 PM)

I can't belive it's taken me so long to see this classic film. A chilling story and ending, great performances all round - especially from Anthony Perkins - and, as Empire stated, that classic shower sequence.  Also, Hitchcock's camera work is brilliant, a step ahead of everyone else at the time.  The slow ascent of the stairs towards Bate's mothers room is a prime example.  Not to be missed.




twinpeaks4eva -> Mother! (22/3/2012 12:19:30 PM)

As much America's greatest earliest popcorn thriller as Hitchcock's famed pure cinema exercise in terrifying audiences with one of celluloid's most infamous, hugely iconic moments: 'Mother' supposedly murdering Janet Leigh in the shower just halfway into the film, audiences were robbed of their comfort zone and plunged into the madness of motel manager Norman Bates, whose own mind turns out to be splintered into the psychopathy of his oedipal issues, causing him to kill whoever threatens his sexuality. Anthony Perkins was born to play Bates, his beautiful yet sometimes eerily gaunt visage and wiry, nervous physicality is mesmerising, particularly the unnerving moment he tries to act calm in front of John Gavin and Vera Miles, only to lean over and the camera to reveal him chewing so hard his jaw seems to protrude. Dark, absorbing and Hitchcock's masterpiece, second to Vertigo as his greatest film, this remains as sharp as it ever was, still scaring some people, but its perfect when experienced in the cinema, as Hitchcock intended.




Ralph25 -> Best....Nightmare...on real life....ever! (11/4/2013 11:16:53 PM)

"Psycho" is simply the best horror film ever made. The story is incredible, the acting is near perfection, the cinematography is awesome, the soundtrack is perfect. It's hard to find anything wrong with Psycho. Perhaps the only imperfection I can find is the Inability to stand the test of time. One of the Reasons the shower scene has become so notorious Is that it's not only filmed to perfection, but because the elements of sexuality and murder are so surreal. In 1960, seeing a nude women being murdered in the shower was something no-one had experienced yet, and was quite shocking. Nowadays, seeing double-Jason Spearing two lovers having fri is nothing uncommon. Psycho its nothing like that, it's more!
Aside from this though, the movie is flawless, the cinematography it's just incredible.
The movie is perfectly casted as well. Janet Leigh to the beautiful and sexy Marion Crane; Vera Miles to the Concerned sister; Lila Crane exelent; and of course the unforgettable performance from Anthony Perkins to the eerie yet charismatic Norman Bates.
The film not only scares you a lot, but leaves you stuck on screen until the end of the movie, and only the strong survive's the insane dialogs, mentally, in the end, it will haunt you to the end of your lives, because ... I'AM NORMA BATES!

movienut707 -> "We all go a little mad sometimes." (1/10/2013 6:28:27 PM)

Hitchcock's preeminent shocker, Psycho features superb performances, an indelible musical score, and one of the most frightening scenes in motion picture history (you know the one). In a word: unforgettable.
