Özet

Psycho (Alfred Hitchcock, 1960) is of prime importance for the horror genre since Hitchcock places horror in settings of everyday life. It is also important for its narrative structure along with the editing of the shower scene, God's eye view shots of staircase scenes that limit the view of the audience, the use of voice over for making meaning, altering the identification of the viewer, the psychological aspect and score. The movie has had an unignorable effect on cinema with its sequels, prequel, a documentary about the movie, an avant-garde movie which is a replica, an appropriation of Psycho presented as an art installation, a semibiographic movie on the process of producing the movie, a murder scene that became a cliche as well as borrowings or references in other movies and countless books, reviews and articles about it.
