Primary Location: First Saw: In Theatre Saw at/with: NH Film Class
Rating: R Year: 1960 Category: Thriller
Director: Alfred Hitchcock Time: 109 min. Writer: Joseph Stefano

Mine: Great movie! Has a visual style that is almost more important than the plot. Creepy over and over again.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: The Master's most notorious film is still terrifying after all these years, as larcenous Leigh picks the wrong place to spend a night: The Bates Motel (12 cabins, 12 vacancies... and 12 showers), run by a peculiar young man and his crotchety old "mother." Hitchcock's murder set-pieces are so potent, they can galvanize (and frighten) even a viewer who's seen them before! Bernard Herrmann's legendary (and endlessly imitated) score adds much to the excitement. Script by Joseph Stefano from the Robert Bloch novel. Followed by three sequels (the last for cable TV) and a TV movie (BATES MOTEL) decades later!
