This film is widely considered to be the earliest example of a slasher film and set a new level of acceptability for movie violence.

Thanks @animefreak4eb for the thrilling suggestion! Psycho has fascinated audiences and critics for years with its intense psychological elements and umm...shall we say interesting mother-son relationship? As one of Hitchcock’s most well-known films, Psycho has become a part of popular culture and even inspired the modern TV spin-off Bates Motel, which is equally terrifying. We can’t wait to watch your reactions to Psycho’s HUGE twist!
