Synopsis

Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece about lonely, disturbed motelier Norman Bates and his unhealthy mother fixation continues to shock after more than 50 years. Shot on a shoestring against studio wishes, Psycho would go on to become his most successful film and leave a lasting impression on film history. Its various innovations include the pivotal switching of audience identification figures, and its adherence to the principles of psychoanalysis. But regardless of its technical brilliance and lasting influence, it's the immediacy of Psycho as a visceral experience that ensures it continued classic status.
