This is an undisputed classic when it comes to horror films. The idiots in Hollywood actually tried to remake this film, and it is simply one that cannot ever be done over.
You all now the story...Norman Bates runs a motel called the bates Motel with his invalid mother. Janet Leigh is a young woman who has stolen $40,000 and ends up being knifed in the shower in a scene that will forever live in movie history.
The theater I saw this in had very few people, and that is a good thing because there was no yaking teenagers, cell phones ringing. It was heaven actually.
Seeing this on the big screen was a once in a lifetime thing and what a revelation it was. The beautiful black and white photography was better than I have ever seen it, and the rousing Bernard Herrmann score was nothing short of epic.
If you get the chance I couldn't recommend this enough on the big screen. It is much better than any of the crap playing now and it actually tells a great story. The rest of the steller cast includes Very Miles, Anthony Perkins, John Gavin, Martin Balsam, John Anderson, John McIntire, Simon Oakland, Frank Albertson, and Vaughn Taylor.
Again, an untouchable classic!!
