PSYCHO (1960) Now considered one of Hitchcock’s best films , praised as a work of cinematic art by international film critics and film scholars and ranked among the greatest films of all time, it set a new level of acceptability for violence, deviant behaviour and sexuality in American films and is widely considered to be the earliest example of the slasher film genre. “The Master’s most notorious film is still terrifying after all these years …the murder set pieces are so potent, they can galvanize (and frighten) even a viewer who’s seen them before! Bernard Herrmann’s legendary (and endlessly imitated) score adds much to the excitement.”LEONARD MALTIN.
