Psycho by Robert Bloch




Psycho is one of my favorite horror movies of all time. It's also, of course, an excellent novel. As always, the novel is better than the movie, but Alfred Hitchcock did an amazing job. This is a great read for those that don't want full on gore but are looking for a creepy read. If you have young teens that have outgrown R.L. Stine, Psycho is a book that can be enjoyed without having to worry about your kids being exposed to excessive amounts of sexually explicit content that is often seen in horror novels. I give it 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it.


The story was all too real-indeed this classic was inspired by the real-life story of Ed Gein, a psychotic murderer who led a dual life. Alfred Hitchcock too was captivated, and turned the book into one of the most-loved classic films of all time the year after it was released. Norman Bates loves his Mother. She has been dead for the past twenty years, or so people think. Norman knows better though. He has lived with Mother ever since leaving the hospital in the old house up on the hill above the Bates motel. One night Norman spies on a beautiful woman that checks into the hotel as she undresses. Norman can't help but spy on her. Mother is there though. She is there to protect Norman from his filthy thoughts. She is there to protect him with her butcher knife.
