Psycho was a novel inspired by the horrific acts of Ed Gein, and the film is known as one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best films. So it’s time for us to take a stab at uncovering all the differences between the book and film.

Psycho is a thriller about a man who has gone through some sort of psychological break and takes on the identity of his dead mother to murder women that are staying at his motel. The book and film have many similarities, both dealing with violence and sexuality, but some of the biggest differences can be seen with our main character, Norman Bates. At that, it’s time pull back the proverbial shower curtain on all the differences between the book and the film.

Did you read Psycho? Have you seen the classic film recently? What about the 1998 shot for shot remake? Do you have a favorite Hitchcock film?
