How did the movie Psycho change America?
Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960) has been called The mother of all Slasher Movies, and many would consider it to be the first 'true' slasher film. Psycho paved the way for John Carpenter's Halloween (1978) and the hoards of other films that followed.

In the book he was short, fat, and unattractive. Hitchcock decided that he wanted Norman Bates to be tall, slim, and attractive. I would assume this was done so that the audie…nce would sympathize with him and like him, which would make it more of a shock when he turned out to be an insane monster. It would also allow Janet Leigh's character, Marion Crane, to develop a rapport with Bates before being killed by him. But I have not been able to find any quotations from Hitchcock to support this theory.
As of 2013, there have been two American Psycho films, American Psycho (2000) and American Psycho 2: All American Girl (2002).
The movie Psycho was released in the year 1960, it was produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock based on the novel Psycho by Robert Bloch. The movie starred: Anthony Perkins,… Janet Leigh, Vera Miles.
Hitchcock make his cameo quite early in the film 'Psycho'; about five minutes in. He is seen outside Janet Leigh's office wearing a cowboy hat.
The Alfred Hichcock movie "Psycho" had three direct sequels: Psycho II, Psycho III, and Psycho IV: The Beginning (technically Psycho IV was a prequel) There wa…s also a (rather inferior) 1998 remake of the original Psycho. There is also a Hindi language movie called "Psycho" which is a completely unrelated story.

When your brain doesn't function the way the accuser sees as normal A psychopath is a person who is suffering from a chronic mental disorder and has abnormal as well… as violent behavior.
Norman poisoned his mother and her lover.
Find it on VHS. I think the "movie" was actually edited from episodes of the series so you might want to look for those if you cant find it
Psycho was so popular because it had a surprise ending. The story and some of the scenes were also pretty shocking for the time.
HALLOWEENs Dr Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence) is named after Marion Crane (Janet Leigh)'s lover Sam Loomis (John Gavin) in PSYCHO. HALLOWEENs heroine actress Jamie Lee Curtis i…s the daughter of PSYCHOs heroine actress Leigh. HALLOWEENs character Marion Chambers refers to PSYCHOs characters Marion (Leigh) and Deputy Sheriff Al Chambers (John McIntire).
