Certainly Hitchcock's most unrelenting exercise in terror, PSYCHO remains one of the most terrifying films of all time. Countlessly imitated but never equaled, PSYCHO's tale of a strange young man and his possessive mother features the now-famous shower scene, the sinister Bates Motel, and the creepy house that overlooks it.
"PSYCHO is simply the best. Without having to qualify it in any way, PSYCHO is the greatest horror film that has yet been made."
- Darrell Moore, THE BEST, WORST AND MOST UNUSUAL HORROR FILMS
Alfred Hitchcock’s haunting classic is a perfect choice for your horror-craving students.
