Psycho (1960)

Leigh plays Marion Crane, a secretary who steals money from the bank she works at, and runs away until the stormy weather makes driving difficult so she decides to stay at a motel for the night. She happens to stop at a motel that is right off the highway named the Bates Motel, owned by the seemingly normal but awkward Norman Bates. But everything is far from normal. Norman Bates has a split personality of himself and his mentally ill mother. After Marion’s ill-fated death in the famous “shower scene”, her boyfriend, sister and a private detective set out to investigate her disappearance. Excellent horror film that still gives you chills. Starring Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, John Gavin, Martin Balsam, John McIntire, Simon Oakland, John Anderson 10/10
