Once deemed “impossible for films”, Robert Bloch’s novel of a hotel proprietor with serious mommy issues was turned into one of the greatest horror movies of all time by Alfred Hitchcock — a feat he accomplished without the help of a major studio. From this unlikely success story came a film that both terrified audiences and elevated the horror genre, but the road to “Psycho” was fraught with obstacles. In this episode, we will cross over into the world of true crime as we explore everything from the terrifying killer who served as the inspiration for Norman Bates to all of the roadblocks Hitchcock came up against as he set out to make a film so scary that it would forever become a part of our collective consciousness...especially when we’re in the shower.
