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.

Psycho was so popular because it had a surprise ending. The story and some of the scenes were also pretty shocking for the time.
I think it's fake blood I think they got water and red paint idk really that's my guess
its about a guy guy who kills his murderous mom, and he doesn't want to accept it. so he keeps his moms body in his attic and takes on two forms, one him, nice but weird guy, …and his mom, murderous and mean. oh yeah he also dresses like his mom when hes her
Janet Leigh played 'Marion Crane'.
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.
Psycho was the original slasher film. Psycho was considered highly controversial for its time, however it is quite mild by today's standards.
