A classic and masterpiece from Hitchcock. No CG and special effects, but you can feel the tension and suspense like no other.
An absolute classic. The time it was made makes the content seem rather tame by modern standards, but it is a masterpiece of story telling. Few, if any, modern directors are able to ratchet up the tension like Hitchc0ck
Great movie - You gotta take it with a grain of salt because it's old, but for the time it was made, it's impressive. Had always heard about the shower scene and can see why it caused such a stir back in the day.
A great story line right up until the last second. A must for any serious film goer. But don't expect to be scared witless like people of 1960 or you might be disappointed. But expect to be entertained... Read more because you certainly won't be let down in that case.
It's still electrifying, brilliant movie making, even after the initial impact it had has worn off. You know what it's about, you know what's going to happen, but you watch it right through, because... Read more it's so skillfully put together. It's been imitated again and again, but this is, and always will be, the classic. It's terrific. And the music is still the best thriller score of all time.
Great performance from Norman Bates. Watch the "Making Of" on the Ann. Edition - its not only better than the film but it makes you appreciate more the skills of the Director, Editor, Composer et al.
Legendary Hitchcock thriller, but it's lost much (most?) of its impact over the years. A critic's classic it may be but the average modern viewer will probably find it somewhat over-rated. It's still... Read more miles ahead of the lame 1998 remake, however.
Classic, great horror movie of its time. Funny to think we were scared at the time! Al in all worth a watch.
