DVD review: Psycho

Posted by Jonathan On September - 2 - 2010

Mummy! Masterful screen terror as bad-girl-on-the-lam Janet Leigh picks the wrong place to spend the night. Scalpel-sharp edits, leering camerawork and Bernard Herrmann’s killer score max out the fear-factor in Hitchcock’s seminal black-and-white shocker. Three-mile queues were reported at some drive-in theatres when it debuted in 1960. It’s still not safe to go back in the water.

Go for the Collector’s Edition DVD with smart 90-min documentary The Making Of Psycho and shower-scene storyboards presented by Saul Bass.
