Forget about Vertigo, THIS is Alfred Hitchcock's best film.

Well Caesar, I love your affinity for Psycho, but I have to disagree. I think Vertigo is indeed Hitchcock's best film. But Psycho is his second best. I've got both films in my top 5.

My favorite horror film. It may not be the scariest, but it's the most well-directed, best-written, and most creative I've ever seen. Happy Halloween.

I so agree. Having a month full of horror films, nothing even came close to topping Psycho! :)

To all you Guardians of the Galaxy/Fast and the Furious lovers. This is a real FILM. Psycho is a staple of filmmaking. Every shot looks beautiful and is gracefully edited. The atmosphere is very tensed and you're left on the edge of your seat for the entire runtime. The acting is brilliant, especially Anthony Perkins who gives an Oscar worthy performance as Norman. Also, the story takes risks and goes into all different directions. There will never be another Hitchcock again!
