Psycho (1960) USA / 109 min / Horror Mystery Thriller / B/W

Written by Roger Malcolm

The film that gave birth to the slasher, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho!  The screenplay, written by Joseph Stefano, was based off the novel by Robert Bloch and stars Janet Leigh as Marion Crane, with Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates.  Also, it was produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock, in beautiful black and white cinematography.  Psycho would be the director’s last, as he would transition to only color films for the rest of his career.  In the years after Hitchcock’s death in 1980, 3 sequels featuring Anthony Perkins, a made-for-television movie spin-off, a near shot-for-shot remake and television series have been produced.
