Unca Fully’s Scary Time – Thursday

Is that you, Norman? (Universal)

It’s time to talk about “Mad Slasher” movies. I could pick from some of the more recent ones like Halloween, Friday the 13th, the Nightmare on Elm Street series and on and on….
Instead, I’m going back to the first slasher movie of note that stunned the audiences and created a whole generation of nervous showerers.
When Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” starts out, you think you’re watching the wrong movie. This looks like a crime drama with Janet Leigh embezzling a pile of money. Then, she makes a mistake in her getaway plans and takes a room at the Bates Motel, with that creepy old house out back, and Norman, with his collection of stuffed animals and a peephole, and before you know it, we’re off to the races….
A complex plot, an expertly filmed story and the end of any regular acting gigs for Anthony Perkins. (As bad a career move as playing a Vulcan on Star Trek)
The movie is regularly shown on television, but you need to watch it “uncut”…..sorry, I couldn’t resist. My top “Mad Slasher” movie is Universal’s “Psycho.” Tomorrow, another category in my Halloween favorites.
