Psycho Plot Summary
Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose "old dark house" and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. No one knows that better than Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), the film's ill-fated heroine who is victimized in the now-notorious "shower scene." Vera Miles, Martin Balsam, John Gavin, and John McIntire co-star in Hitchcock's most compelling and terrifying film. The screenplay was written by Joseph Stefano.
*Did you know? - Anthony Perkins wasn't present during the shooting of the shower scene. A stand-in played Mother while Perkins was rehearsing a Broadway show in New York.
