Ep. 02-07: Psycho (1960)

Episode 02-07 PSYCHO

Secretary, Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), is on the run after stealing money from her employer in Phoenix. Traveling back roads to avoid the police, she stops for the night at the remote Bates Motel where she meets the polite but odd proprietor, Norman (Anthony Perkins)… a young man with an interest in taxidermy who has a difficult relationship with his mother.

Alfred Hitchcock gave the world Psycho in 1960, obliterating film and genre-conventions left and right, and delivering an iconic monument that still stands tall in the canon of American films. Join us as we discuss the revolutionary aspects that lift this work above genre categorization to film classic. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys takes you to an isolated hotel where madness and murder dwell and the only sounds are those of crickets, a distant highway, and a scream.
