Psycho ★★★★★

The Gentlemen of Carlson 206 Present: The Alfred Hitchcock Marathon! (6 of 6)

SPOOKY. This is the original psychological horror movie. Cannot not appreciate the influence Psycho had on the genre. In addition to that, Hitchcock has directed a technical masterpiece, and one laden with oOOoo OOoOo OoOOo tension! There were a few cut transitions that REALLY got me. Anthony Perkins is terrifying and awkward at the same time, especially in the scene where he sits in the parlour with Janet Leigh’s character. The sound effects were harrowing. This is a great movie, through and through, and the best of today’s marathon.
