Psycho - 50th Anniversary

Alfred Hitchcock's classic Psycho opened on this day 50 years ago. Hitchcock was very secretive about the story line at the time and in order to not give it away, there were no advance screenings and during its theatrical release, no one was allowed in the cinema after the movie started.

Even if you have never watched this movie, almost everyone is very familiar with the famous shower scene. But the scene that brings a chill down my spine is at the end. Anthony Perkins' creepy Norman Bates really shows you his evil side.

There were several sequels and even a remake, but none could ever match the strength and effect of this version of the movie.
