This is one of my favourite films of all time.

Psycho tells the tale of Marion Crane, who disappears after stealing $40,000 from her place of work…

After skipping town and an encounter with a suspicious policeman, she takes refuge at the Bates Motel where she meets the charming Norman Bates. And you know, they have a little bite to eat and Norman tells her all about his mentally ill mother…

When Norman leaves Marion, she decides that she will have a good night’s rest and return the stolen money in the morning before having a shower…

And we all know what happens next…

Disturbed by the allegations of theft surrounding her sister, Lila Crane and her boyfriend Sam Loomis investigate Marion’s sudden disappearance…

They hire a private investigator, Arbogast, who ends up being murdered by Norman Bates’ mother…

Worrying that something may have happend to Arbogast AND Marion, Lila and Sam take matters into their own hands and go on the trail Arbogast started. They meet the local sheriff of Fairvale who tells them that he was puzzled by Arbogast’s determination to speak to Norman Bates and his mother as his mother died in a murder / suicide years gone past.

So obviously they head over to the motel to investigate…

Her search leads to the basement where Lila finds Mrs Bates…

Oh my…

It’s revealed that Norman is the true killer as he appears dressed as his dead mother, brandishing a knife…

After Norman’s arrest, his psychologist tells us that he murdered his mother and her lover and developed a split personality to erase the crime from his memory and that the ‘mother’ personality has now completely taken over his mind.

I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! The story, the casting, the direction, the production… I think it is absolutely perfect! Here’s a fan made trailer for this phenomenal masterpiece! Go watch it… then go watch the film!
