ABC1, 11.50pm, M ( 1960)

For one of the most spine- tin­gling, chill­ing horror sto­ries ever made, look no fur­ther than this Al­fred Hitch­cock clas­sic. The heavy- handed at­mos­phere and ten­sion are om­nipresent as Mar­ion Crane ( Janet Leigh), des­per­ate for money to marry her fi­ancé, steals $ 40,000 from a client and legs it to Cal­i­for­nia, stop­ping at a mo­tel along the way. It’s here she meets Nor­man ( An­thony Perkins) whose creepy re­la­tion­ship with his mother does lit­tle to set­tle her thoughts. When Mar­ion is killed – in the fa­mous shower scene – by an un­known as­sailant, it’s up to her sis­ter and fi­ancé to hunt down the mur­derer. Un­for­get­table.
