The essays here presented focus on Psycho, both the novel by Robert Bloch (1950) and the film by Alfred Hitchcock (1960). Therefore, the different approaches range from film studies to literary criticism. Norman Bates has become an icon of late twentieth century horror and the movie he starred set the basis for later cinematic developments. Over 50 years after the release of the book and the movie it inspired, new readings, revisions and adaptations of the domestic tragedy of Norman Bates and his mother are still been produced, the latest to date being Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock, released on November 2012. Now the curtains (either on the stage or in the bathroom) are about to open and a most peculiar house - with its silhouette and endorsement of doom - is awaiting up on the hill. No cameras or pencils are allowed; you're invited to a ritual that only your eyes will view and your imagination will embody. Leave all hope behind and enter at your own risk. The Bates' terrifying rollercoaster welcomes you. Nothing is over here...not at least until it overcomes you.
