No one celebrates Halloween like Alfred Hitchcock, especially with his masterpiece of the macabre Psycho (1960).

Brilliantly shot, edited and with a classic score by Bernard Herrmann, Anthony Perkins in the role of his career brings to iconic life a lonely motel clerk named Norman Bates. With solid support from Vera Miles, John Gavin, John McIntire, Patricia Hitchcock and in an Oscar nominated turn, Janet Leigh, a web of suspicion and suspense is slowly woven leading to a climax that will leave you breathless. No one who has ever seen Psycho ever forgets it. Neither will you. 

Happy Halloween from The Tired Old Queen at the Movies!
