There’s no one who can love you quite like your parents. But let’s face it. Sometimes, parents can be lame. In the words of Will Smith, “Parents just don’t understand.” I believe that this is exactly how Norman Bates felt in one of the most beloved films in and outside of the horror genre, Psycho. It’s often considered one of the most iconic movies of the baby boomer era and in my opinion, still remains to hold up the standards of modern-day slasher films. Alfred Hitchcock not only set the bar for all future horror films with Psycho, but built a foundation for the films we all are fans of. Slashers.
