60th Anniversary 4K Restoration – Original theatrical cut with about a minute of additional footage that Paramount cut after the initial theatrical run.
Phoenix secretary Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) embezzles $40,000 from her employer and goes on the run, plagued by a guilty conscience. Later that night, groggy from her long drive, she reluctantly stops at an unassuming roadside motel run by a very peculiar young man named Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) and his domineering mother. With this simple set-up, pitch-perfect performances, and a masterful command for creating suspense, director Alfred Hitchcock laid the groundwork for what would eventually become one of the most popular, yet critically reviled genres of the 1980s — the slasher film.
“It was the most shocking film its original audience members had ever seen. ‘Do not reveal the surprises!’ the ads shouted, and no moviegoer could have anticipated the surprises Hitchcock had in store….” —Roger Ebert
