CLASSIC Sunday PSYCHO
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.
