Bernard Herrmann Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho: The Original 1960 Movie Score on 180g Import LP
Hailed as one of the most influential suspense movies of its time, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho had a profound effect on how future filmmakers made movies and shaped audience expectations for generations to come. The film takes audiences on a thrilling journey as an unsuspecting victim visits the Bates Motel and falls prey to one of the silver screen's most notorious psychopaths – Norman Bates. Psycho continues to terrify audiences today as much as it did half a century ago.
Driving the suspense is the film's classic soundtrack, scored by none other than Bernard Herrmann (Citizen Kane, Taxi Driver, Cape Fear). Herrmann began writing scores for Alfred Hitchcock as early as 1955, but the apex of their collaborations undoubtedly came in the form of his work on Hitchcock's 1960 masterpiece Psycho. The composer's uncanny ability to set the mood makes Psycho's soundtrack one of the most memorable in the history of cinema and the infamous shower scene and its shrieking violins is as bone-chilling as it gets!
