What many consider to be legendary directory Alfred Hitchcock's greatest film, this 1960 horror-thriller is based on a book released a year earlier by Robert Bloch. The nervous Norman Bates entrances audiences with his creepy behavior and the reveal of his monumental secret, and Janet Leigh's shower scene is one of the most famous in all of cinema. A positive critical reception and astounding numbers at the box office, coupled with scenes that still chill today, cement this film as one of the most popular adaptations around. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Paramount)
