The star of the show is both Hitchcock in the director's chair and Perkins playing the clean cut yet overwhelmingly creepy Norman Bates. If you watch every scene with Bates in it and pay close attention you can nearly feel the power of the acting with the end of the movie cementing it in your mind forever. Don't be afraid, he won't even harm that fly.

Anthony Perkins was perfect in this. Also, busty Janet Leigh in her bra on the theatrical poster must have a pretty big scandal at the time. One of my favorite Hitchcock films as well as one of my favorite horror films of all time. It's still manages to scare 55 years later.
