I thought this movie would make a good Halloween movie to watch, and let the scary music play loud enough to great the trick or treaters. None of them noticed.
This is the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock classic. A young woman takes off with $40,000 from her employer, and picks the wrong hotel. I didn't realize that the murder happened so early in the movie, and the rest of the movie is about finding her killer. This movie is rated R because of the murder in the shower scene; however it would not be rated so severely today.
Hitchcock does know how to tell a story, get an isolated rural area, and add someone who is criminally insane, and you have all the right ingredients for a scary time. Janet Leigh stars as the victim and Anthony Perkins as the killer.
