So Crazy It Works – Psycho II (1983)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on May 25, 2018

Review: Psycho (1960)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Apr 20, 2018

For all intent and purposes, Psycho could be an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Hitchcock knew that better than anyone else.

GOING (to) PSYCHO AGAIN

Lady Eve's Reel Life Posted by The Lady Eve on Sep 30, 2015

50 years ago, I saw Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho for the first time. It was 1965 and though the film was originally released in 1960, its immense popularity led to a re-issue five years later.
