Ranked #8 Greatest Movies Through 1960, in 32 of 41 best movies lists, a Zagat Top Movie

A young woman steals $40,000 from her employer’s client, and subsequently encounters a young motel proprietor too long under the domination of his mother. IMDB 8.7 rating from over 206,556 users

More than just a first-rate shocker full of thrills and suspense, Psycho is also an engrossing character study in which director Alfred Hitchcock skillfully seduces you into identifying with the main characters–then pulls the rug (or the bathmat) out from under you. Amazon 4.7 stars from over 545 users

MRQE 90% rating from more than 77 reviews

Notes: Hitchcock’s cameo appearance is early in the movie. Look for him wearing a big cowboy hat outside Marion’s office.
