Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic horror film Psycho is ranked among the greatest films of all time and was Oscar-nominated. Psycho is a psychological thriller which caused controversy with film censors around the world. It was first shown in cinemas in 1960, and was so successful it was re-released in 1965. Famous for its shocking shower scene, the film is a great title with Halloween just around the corner!

Phoenix office worker Marion Crane is fed up with the way life has treated her. She has to meet her lover Sam in lunch breaks and they cannot get married because Sam has to give most of his money away in alimony. One Friday Marion is trusted to bank $40,000 by her employer. Seeing the opportunity to take the money and start a new life, Marion leaves town and heads towards Sam’s California store. Tired after the long drive and caught in a storm, she gets off the main highway and pulls into The Bates Motel. The motel is managed by a quiet young man called Norman who seems to be dominated by his mother.
