Psycho (1960)

Hitchcock's psychological thriller broke new ground in Hollywood and forever changed the genre. The bone-chilling tension still resonates today, despite a culture hardened to big-screen violence and psychological games. The infamous “shower scene” remains one of the most memorable in film history. Bernard Herrmann's chilling score intensifies the edge-of-your-seat suspense. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards but was shunned in all categories.
