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! :)
