» Psycho » is not only one of the greatest horror classics of all time, but also a milestone in American cinema. If you haven’t seen it, you’ve simply missed out on a piece of cinema history. And that’s exactly what you can experience on TV tonight: ONE is showing «Psycho» on May 11, 2022 from 10 p.m. — of course we can give an unreserved recommendation for it. The Hitchcock classic is suspense cinema par excellence, which has lost none of its impact even after more than half a century.
“Psycho” already had a certain effect when it was released in cinemas, yes, even before that. Alfred Hitchcock himself made sure of that by forbidding his actors to give interviews. Because they weren’t allowed to reveal anything, after all, the film offers one of the most legendary twists in film history! The master of suspense packed everything that people were allowed to know in advance into a small, six-minute trailer or commercial in which he cunningly lured his audience down the wrong track — only to rip the rug out from under his feet in the end. And that’s exactly what the film still does today.
