The shower scene in Psycho is rightly celebrated as a classic moment in film. Much of the scenes power comes not from the way the scene itself is shot, but in its relationship to everything in the film that has gone before. Hitchcock's skill here was in diverting the eye and the mind to such an extent that even today when probably everyone knows the story, the plot twist is unexpected. This film has a much deserved place in the heart of any film fans collection.
The homicidal maniac's attack in the shower, with blood gurgling down the plughole, must be one of the most shocking scenes ever filmed. The tension is unbearable as lovesick Janet Leigh runs off with a big wedge of cash from her office and decides to overnight at an out-of-the-way motel. Big mistake! Anthony Perkins is great as the creepy motel-owner. The cream on the cake is Bernard Herrmann's chilling music. A Hitchcock classic that still makes film fans' blood run cold after more than 40 years.
After studing the introduction music to psycho I have wanted to watch the whole film. After buying it, I played it straight away and I think its a really good film.
