SHOW NOTES:Bates Motel. Norman. Mother. The shower scene. The screeching score. You see it, you hear it, and you instantly know it's Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. The iconography of Hitchcock's masterpiece is steeped in our culture, and despite a career of over 50 years it is this little black and white film, made with a crew borrowed from Hitchcock's TV series, that is most remembered and revered. Now the hosts of Now Playing watch and review this cinema classic. How well does the film hold up over 50 years after it was released? Is it still relevant to today's horror films?
