‘Psycho’ Movie Summary
In Psycho, Marion Crane works in an office building in Phoenix, Arizona, and she’s sick of the daily grind of life. She can not marry her boyfriend Sam because all his money goes towards alimony. However, one fateful Friday, Marion’s boss tasks her to deposit $40,000 in the bank. She takes this opportunity to steal the dough, and start a new life. She quickly hightails it out of state, and heads to Sam’s California store. On the long drive, Marion finds herself caught in a storm, and pulls off the main highway where she finds the Bates Motel. It looks like a nice place to stay for the night. Unfortunately, a quiet young man named Norman manages the place, and his mother seems to be driving him crazy. Marion better watch out, or she might not ever be the same. Read the full movie summary here or listen to our film review here.
