The last half of it is reportedly scary and tense; it's being touted as the "best Hitchcock movie Alfred Hitchcock has never made." That remark alone will probably lure me into the theater to see it. (There's apparently a real "spoiler" in it, a la The Sixth Sense.)
I loved Hitchcock. He was the master of "show don't tell." He gave the viewer credit for a modicum of intelligence. You never saw anyone actually get stabbed. You saw the shadow of the maniac. You saw the blood running down the drain in the shower. But you never saw the knife connect with the flesh. Hitchcock didn't knock moviegoer's on the head by telling them what transpired. He showed them instead...

Since I go to movies rarely, I'd love to hear from anyone who has seen the movie (I think it comes out this weekend?). What is your opinion of the film?
