Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss the original Psycho movie directed by Alfred Hitchcock. A woman embezzles $40,000 and is on the run.
Arguably Hitchcock's most well known film, Psycho adapts Robert Bloch's novel into a low budget black and white thriller that shocked audiences with its plot twists and violence. It's a bit of a slow burn at first, but establishing Marion's (Janet Leigh) paranoia helps win the audience on her side only to have it taken away after she meets odd hotel manager Norman (Anthony Perkins). Its infamous shower scene inspired an entire documentary, 78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene.
