Women in Horror: Janet Leigh

Psycho is by far one of the best horror films ever made. Scream queen of the week, Janet Leigh, is one of the most memorable scream queens in the horror genre. Earning herself an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, Leigh was given the difficult task of aiding Alfred Hitchcock in changing film. Up until Psycho, the idea of a woman being stabbed to death, naked and in the shower was unheard of. Janet Leigh is absolutely perfect as Marion Crane and shocks the audience when she meets her bloody demise.

Instead of talking about how amazing Janet Leigh is in Psycho, I figured I’d share the famous death scene that changed cinema forever. Sometimes a film can just speaks for itself.
