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! Steve Hayes
"I would also like to take this opportunity to squash the persistent rumours about mysterious 'disappearances' and emphasize that rural and urban areas are now enjoying a life of harmony and peace. I'm sure you're glad to hear this. And I'm happy you're glad."
