Alfred Hitchcock's landmark 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 ill-fated traveler whose journey ends in the notorious shower scene. First a private detective, then Marion's sister (Vera Miles) searches for her, the horror and the suspense mount to a terrifying climax where the mysterious killer is finally revealed.
Psycho and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre were inspired by the grisly crimes of serial killer Ed Gein. Born of the same story but created 15 years apart, these tales of terror spawned two of the silver screen’s most legendary killers: Norman Bates and Leatherface. Both films feature houses of horror, taxidermy, corpses in rocking chairs, dysfunctional families, and some of the more iconic moments in horror.
