Psycho response

I love this movie, seeing it in class was my 4th time seeing it and i feel like it gets better every time. Hitchcock is brilliant with his use of high and low angle shots in the scene of the conversation in the parlor with the stuffed birds all about the room. the large bird of prey backing up Norman and the small defenseless bird along side Vera Miles’ character. and of course his use of point of view shots during the famous shower scene, putting the viewer behind the eyes of a psycho killer, and again as we watch the car sink into the swamp from his POV. it is awesome.

Hitchcock created a whole new kind of monster in horror films. we dont only have vampires zombies to worry about now, we have to be afraid of that quiet guy down the road. so good.
