SummaryAdd a Summary
Alfred Hitchcock directed this horror film in 1960. It is the story of a young woman Marion who in a moment of weakness steals $40,000 dollars from her employer. She gets scared and paranoid and drives off the main roads. She ends up at the Bates Motel which is in front of a big creepy house. That image tells the viewer this will not end well.

Anticipation, music, and shadows on the wall are where the horror comes from, but for some that'll be terrifying enough.
