Psycho and The Birds...wow!!!
on 22 July 2008
two incredibly brilliant masterpieces made by one of the most acclaimed and fantastic directors ever.
seriously these are gems of the horror genre so much that it evolves beyond that.
Psycho-10/10-a classic film that alone spawned the slasher genre...but it is so much more than that,it is beyond horror,it is a film focused on fear as the objective...and once you manage to get through the nail biting theme of the opening credits you will already become pushed to the edge...of your seat.
possibly one of my favourite films of all time and most definately the best film of the 1960s.
the shower scene is a classic and one of the most petrifying scenes in the history of the film.
visualy it is striking and enhances all your senses that brings you in with our characters...and what marvellous characters they are too.
Janet Leigh alone makes the film the epic horror that it is today,her talent is shone here and has made Mrion Crane an icon of horror cinema.
Anthony Perkins delivers an unsettling performance as Norman Bates...also become and icon of the cinema.
Norman Bates has to be one of the most horrifying characters ever brought to the big screen.
a classic that everyone must see.
The Birds-9.5/10-an atmospheric film that (thanks to Tippi Hedren)has become a cult status film.
its extremely unique in the way that there is no soundtrack present at all throughout the film,just that of the birds themselves that makes this a very unique and superb film.
Hitchcock has really flexed his directoral talent here presenting some superb actors and placing them into unsettling situations that makes them very down to earth enough for us to relate to and bring us in to the film and have us experience what they are going through.
after this film you will never look at a bird in the same way again.
love these films...and you must see them...you have no choice but to.
