The shower scene is the greatest piece of filmmaking ever created.

I have never seen a movie that gave me this type of chills. VERY recommendable Horror/Mystery/Thriller! This movie is so far more than the one bathroom scene everybody knows. Watch it, you won't be disappointed!

Hitchcock at his best! I love the suspense, the thrills, and the fabulous cinematography. It's a must see for everyone who likes to be scared.

This is a fair show. It’s not very scary due to it being in black and white though and even the shower scene was well, sad. However the last half of the show things actually started to get better. The voiceover part was actually cool…

Well, f-f-folks - What could I possibly say about Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" that hasn't already been said about a 1000 times before? There can certainly be no doubt about this film's undeniable impact on slasher/horror films that is…

This was a rather exciting film - though it started slowly - up until the last 10 minutes or so, when the psychologist's explanatory monologue/ lecture simply ruined the film. The music, especially in the first two thirds of the film…

Great movie. I have always wanted to watch this classic and it is very good!

As is probably well-known by now, Hitchcock would allow NO ONE into the theater after the film started. That was because he did the classic misdirect to lull the audience into think they were going to see the old NORTH BY NORTHWEST chase…

A Blu-ray has been available for this film for eight years, yet this library hasn't the presence of thought to shelve a better dvd rendering than this non-anamorphic first issue dvd. Get with it KCPL. This is a classic film that redefined…

A masterpiece of horror and suspense.

Alfred Hitchcock's often imitated slasher film from 1960 which was intended to be a black comedy of sorts, but everyone has taken it all way too seriously.

Alfred Hitchcock-past master of suspense and like the writer/director Stephen King both appear in cameo's in their own pictures! Both masters in their respective genres~!Not for the faint of heart-the shower scene very scary-and the…

this is not so much a "scary movie" as it is an exercise in demonstrating the destructive effects of guilt on one's life span (other people can do it to you as a way of warding off their own needful self-realization).

A great classic and a film masterpiece. Definitely a must-watch the bonus material how the movie was shot and cast. Many people complained in bellow comments that this horror was not scary. They forgot it was shot in 1960! Like Mr.…

Even now, it's distinctly unnerving.

Everyone said this movie was going to be really scary and that's why I watched it because I like scary movies. Sadly it wasn't scary at all. I kinda was expecting a little more, thought she was going to run away with her boyfriend and use…

Not sure if I'd ever seen this entire film before - I was a bit too young when it came out. Great B/W filmography - I do have a background in photography and more so I watch with more than just a consumer's eye, i.e., edge cuts,…

The shower scene was as much of a masterpeice as it was meant to be. But the plot was probably even better. Twists and turns where you didn't expect them. As expected of hitchcock.
