Marion Crane has had enough of not being able to conduct her life as she sees fit. His work is not the passion, her lover cannot marry her because he has to pay a huge alimony leaving penniless… But one day, her boss asks her to deposit $ 40,000 in the bank. The temptation is too great, and Marion escaped with the money.

Very quickly the panic began to make itself felt. Shared between the anxiety of getting caught and the excitement of leading a new life, Marion rolls to a destination it will never reach. The rain is pouring, the young woman stops near a motel run by a friendly manager named Norman Bates, but who should bear the character possessive of his mother.

After a hearty dinner with Norman, Marion takes all precautions to conceal the money. To unwind from the day, she takes a shower…


Psychosis has not been well received by the critics. He was supposedly not at the height of the Death to the kits, the Hand to The neck, cold Sweats and other films of Hitchcock. The probable reason of these reactions, is that the journalists have not appreciated to have discovered the film at the cinema. They would have preferred to see a private screening, alone or with their secretaries. Hitchcock had refused to do any before-first. The critics have had to see the movie the day of its release at the same time as everyone else. According to Stefano, it is from there that come the bad reviews. “One could almost detect in them the traces of their annoyance.” he said.

The film is, today, still regarded as a masterpiece and as one of the best films of the master.

Psychosis is ranked by the American Film Institute, 18th on the best one hundred american films of the history of the seventh art, and 1 on the one hundred best thrillers. The character of Norman Bates was ranked the 2nd greatest villain just behind Hannibal Rising. The 25 best music, Bernard Herrmann was ranked 4th, and the citation of Bates as “The best friend of a boy is his mother” is placed in the 56th place of the hundred best replicas of american cinema.
