Topic: Top 10 Psycho Movies

Hi everyone, please excuse me if this topic have already been posted 'cause I'm new here (plus I didn't see any new member's introductory-thread).

I'd like to pose a series questions to the avid horror-movie enthusiasts here starting with your individual top 10 picks for best all time psycho movies.  I'll add mine later on tonight.

Alright, I guess I'm suppose to kick it off.  Well, here's my list . . .

PSYCHO (the original)

THE SILENCE OF THE LAMB & HANNIBAL (nobody can stop . . . the Doctor)

SE7EN

NATURAL BORN KILLER (you see a completely different side to Woody Harrellson in this movie)

THE HITCHER (the original)

Mr. BROOKS

THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (the original and the other one starring Matthew McConaughey)

That flick has a lot of crazy shit in it lol. Such a fun movie though!

Re: Top 10 Psycho Movies

Watched it earlier this week on my new LCD TV.  First time I've ever seen it on a big screen TV -- the detail in the melting/gore scenes was awesome!

Re: Top 10 Psycho Movies

High def TV?  May I ask size & brand?
