The star of the show is both Hitchcock in the director's chair and Perkins playing the clean cut yet overwhelmingly creepy Norman Bates. If you watch every scene with Bates in it and pay close attention you can nearly feel the power of the acting with the end of the movie cementing it in your mind forever. Don't be afraid, he won't even harm that fly.

Anthony Perkins was perfect in this. Also, busty Janet Leigh in her bra on the theatrical poster must have a pretty big scandal at the time. One of my favorite Hitchcock films as well as one of my favorite horror films of all time. It's still manages to scare 55 years later.

First movie that gave me a fright without relying on surprise tactics.

If Vertigo is Hitchcock at his most artistic, in Psycho, he is at his most iconic. I hadn't seen it in decades, so it managed to surprise me all over again. With its technical mastery. With its intriguing shots. With its bold breaking of the rules of screenwriting. With Janet Leigh's intense performance. I don't think I'll be spoiling anyone after 55 years - duly warned anyway - but the reason the shift in protagonists works is because Janet Leigh's character actually completes her arc in the time she's allowed (which is a lot more than you remember anyway), and that she acts as a distorted mirror of Norman Bates, a soul fighting against itself and wracked with guilt. And both fall prey to the same overwhelming, monstrous entity.

I feel ashamed I haven't watched in sooner, but I'm glad I did. The finesse that went into the making of this movie is just.. superb. It doesn't need more words than that, as the movie is more than able to stand on it's own.

Just saw it for the first time. Being disappointed by several high-rated old movies, didn't expect too much from it. However, this one was completely different and quite engrossing. Instantly became a fan of Perkins.

Anthony Perkins’s ability to evoke empathy and terror with his Norman Bates always disarms me. I’ve seen this countless times and I’m always surprised at how compelling this character is.

One of the greatest movies ever by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock! Antony Perkins' expressivity is simply incredible and created creepy legendary scenes!

Ahhhh! One of my favorite movies of all time! Shocking movie for the 60's but clearly Hitchcock did not care about what the critics had to say! Love it, love it, love it!

Even though parts of the movie has been somewhat spoiled for me by lame pop culture parodies, such as the fact that everybody knows about the infamous shower scene that's been shown over and over again. However, the movie still managed to create an air of uneasiness for me. It also still managed to make the twist ending shocking for me. Excellent Hitchcock movie!
