Monster Movie Wednesdays at UNM-Los Alamos will feature “Psycho” at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the UNM-LA Lecture Hall in Bldg. 2. The movie is free and open to the public.
In “Psycho,” (1960, 109 min., R) Alfred Hitchcock, the grandfather of the slasher films of the 1980s and 90s, uses shadows and suggestion to prey upon our primal fear. Star Anthony Perkins’ portrayal of the deeply disturbed Norman Bates and the famous shower scene, have become iconic moments in American cinema.
Monster Movie Wednesdays will continue with “Halloween” on Oct. 27 and runs through Dec. 8. See the full movie schedule at www.la.unm.edu.
