2 Identities = PSYCHO

The movie Physcho was filmed in 1960, and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Marion is at work, but can only see her lover Sam on lunch breaks. They are in love but cannot get married because Sam gives all his money to alimony. At work one day she is trusted by her employer to take $40,000 and put it in the bank. Seeing the oportunity to take the money and start a life Marion leaves town and heads to Sam's California store. He employer sees her leaving. Paranoia beges to distract her, but keeps driving anyways. She wakes up in her car on the side of the road and sees a cop at her window. The cops sends her back on her way, but begins to follow her. with paranoia and a guilty conscience she keeps driving. While on her way, she gets caught up in a storm, and pulls off the side of the road to Bates Motel, which is un known by people. Norman Bates who is dominated by his sick mother runs the hotel.

Marion agrees to have dinner with Norman. after when Marion is alone she takes the money and puts it in a folded newspaper, and puts it on a nightstand. When Marion is taking a shower someone comes in and stabs her to death. Norman then comes in and cleans up the mess. He puts her body in the trunk of her car along with the newspaper with the money, and pushes her car into a near by lake.

Marions sister begins to search for her at Sams store. She doesnt find her there, so her Sam and a private investigator begin to search for her. The investigator goes and questions Norman. He is then brutually murdered by the same person that killed Marion.

This was a sick twisted movie which I oddly really enjoyed. It definitely kept me on edge. I went in thinking Marion was going to be the psycho, but just by watching Normans behavior, hes definitely the psycho. I was really shocked when I came to find out that Norman was playing not only himself, but his sick mother. It was crazy. I would defintely watch the movie again, and refer this to other people.

  1. I agree with everything you've said here. This was one of those movies that I finish and am still thinking about a few hours later. It's pretty insane how sick and twisted it is, yet it's equally as brilliant!
