Psycho(1960)(Review)[Flashback Friday]

Alfred Hitchcock presents a tale of murder and mystery that would become the precipice for the slasher formula for years to come. When a woman steals money from her job and begins to run, she takes shelter at a hotel where her sins catch up to her.

So, cinema confession: this was my very first Hitchcock film. And I absolutely loved it. The music was intense, every frame was meticulous, and even though I knew the infamous twist, it played out beautifully.

It’s really no mystery why this film is still spoken of so highly, the only mystery is why did I wait so long. But really, there’s nothing more I can say about this that hasn’t been spoken to death already, but make sure you see this film. It’s mind boggling how well it works 60 years down the road.

5/5
