Psycho: Considered one of the best films from one of the best directors of horror and thriller ever, Psycho shocked and terrified audiences, critics, and studios alike. Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins give knock-out performances as wayward traveler and psychotic hotel manager Marion Crane and Norman Bates. Full of iconic horror images, Psycho has spawned three sequels, a remake, and an upcoming movie following Alfred Hitchcock's making of the film, Hitchcock. Psycho reminds movie-goers even today about the disturbing depths of the human psyche, making it a truly terrifying film. Check out our Psycho quotes page for more.


Halloween: In 1978 audiences went on a journey with Michael Myers and experienced a horror film unlike any other. The click made a scream queen out of Jamie Lee Curtis -- much like her mother was before in Psycho. Poor Myers, a man who had been institutionalized since he was a child and instead of making his mental troubles better, that experience seems to have turned him into one of the most brutal psycho killers in screen history. The young man was put in an institution for killing his mother and 15 years later on the night before Halloween, Myers breaks out to cause more terror to the tiny hamlet of Haddonfield.

Psycho Quotes

[in police custody] It's sad, when a mother has to speak the words that condemn her own son. But I couldn't allow them to believe that I would commit murder. They'll put him away now as I should have years ago. He was always bad, and in the end he intended to tell them I killed those girls and that man, as if I could do anything but just sit and stare, like one of his stuffed birds. They know I can't move a finger and I won't. I'll just sit here and be quiet, just in case they do... suspect me. They're probably watching me. Well, let them. Let them see what kind of a person I am. I'm not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching... they'll see. They'll see and they'll know, and they'll say, "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly...”

Norma Bates

Norman Bates: You-... you eat like a bird.
Marion Crane: [Looking around at the stuffed birds while eating] And you'd know, of course.
Norman Bates: No, not really. Anyway, I hear the expression 'eats like a bird' .... it-it's really a fals-fals-fals-fals-fals-ity. Because birds really eat a tremendous lot. But I-I don't really know anything about birds. My hobby is stuffing things. You know .... taxidermy.
