For many reasons, Hitchcock’s 1960 film Psycho changed and influenced cinema in a ripple effect still apparent today. From his groundbreaking concept of not allowing late admittance of ticket holders into the cinema up to the shocking committed to his leading lady, Psycho remains a film important for every generation.
Told in two acts, it starts with young Marion Crane fleeing the city after stealing money from work and who winds up in an ill-fated meeting with Norman Bates at the Bates Motel. In the second act, her disappearance ignites an investigation by her sister and lover who also wind up at the Bates Motel.
In honor of Hitchcock, we won’t give too much away in case you haven’t seen it but, trust us, you want to see this on the big screen.
