Rounding out our month of VistaVision Hitchcock classics is this, arguably his most famous and influential feature film. As London’s Radio Times has stated, this is “The most talked about and shocked about horror thriller of all time. Who could ever get tired of checking into the Bates motel to witness Janet Leigh under the shower in the most appallingly brilliant movie murder in cinema history. The model for practically every terror vision made in the last 30 years, Psycho is the best-remembered movie of one of the world’s best-known directors. …It will always remain the ultimate study in scary schizophrenia.” What more can we say beyond that? This is one of the very few movies that, no matter how many times you view it, still has the power to scare you. Come see it on the Colonial’s big screen. Mother would want it that way. (Bill Roth)
