How to Introduce Someone to Psycho

A few months back, we had a couple of friends over to watch Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. Neither had seen it before, though like many, they were both familiar with several of its plot points. Sadly, a lot of Psycho's impact is lost today, though it is a legitimate movie classic and a film that I love.

To help illustrate the impact that it had at its time of release, I put together a Psycho Fact Sheet that I handed to our first timers after the screening. I'm including it here. Warning: It contains spoilers galore, although it seems a little useless to even bother with a spolier warning when it comes to Psycho, such is its infamy. If anyone has anything to add to the sheet, please let me know.

Yours in Psycho,
Dave Stewart
