The screen's master of suspense moves his camera into the icy blackness of the unexplained!
This release marks the 45th anniversary of Psycho's original cinematic release; a film that sent shockwaves throughout the film-going public.
Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose "old dark house" and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. No-one knows that better than Janet Leigh, the film's ill-fated heroine who is brutally victimised in the, now-notorious, "shower scene". Vera Miles, Martin Balslam, John Gavin and John McIntire co-star in Hitchcock's most compelling and terrifying film.
With a scintillating screenplay from Joseph Stefano and with 'that' score by Bernard Herrmann, Psycho was nominated for a multitude of Oscars, but failed to pick up a single gong... How wrong the academy were proven to be.
