'Psycho' is today's pick for 31 days of classic horror. This Alfred Hitchcock classic is one film that few can forget. "Psycho," was released in 1960 and starred Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, Anthony Perkins, and John Gavin. This original idea came from the mind of Robert Bloch, who wrote the book. He was the creator of Mr. Bates.
The character Norman Bates still enthralls the audience looking at the show, "Bates Motel." There was also a remake that Vince Vaughan starred in. Nobody though can deny that Anthony Perkins did the best version of Bates to this date. Some even say that he did so well it led to him being typecast.
The master of suspense of course does get his recognition, Alfred Hitchcock's films never go out of style. Janet Leigh's iconic scene is always burned in our minds, and Vera Miles as the sister who wants to solve the case doesn't get left out either. The cast was and still is perfect and "Psycho," is still a chilling movie.
So "Psycho," is today's pick for 31 days of classic horror. This is a must to watch for those who haven't seen it and for those who need to watch it again. Rent it tonight and get some chills.
