The original slasher film has brilliant predatory camera angles & music so impactful & iconic that it could be considered another character.
Only very rarely can a movie or series evoke visceral fear in me. This is one of those cases.
An iconic American film....never has a shower curtain had such emotional weight. Classic Hitchcock and scary as hell. Do not watch alone.
So many twists and turns! So ahead of its time.
This movie was ahead of its time and there’s a reason it’s considered a classic
Classic. However, the remake w Vince Vaughn beats it.
This film revolutionized the genre with shocking plot twists and the infamous shower scene
Certainly a unique horror movie, even by today’s standards. There’s a reason Hitchcock still resonates with fans of thrills and chills.
What a great film. After watching a couple of his other movies, I am officially a Hitchcock fan!
This film is in a word, "suspense". Hitchcock was truly a master of his medium.
