Psycho Shower Curtain

And I just found a hand painted Psycho shower curtain on Etsy by CustomShowerCurtains that is way scarier and thus way awesome-er than the Plasticland one below (sorry, Plasticland), so you should check that out for kicks.  It actually is really freaking me out right now.  I have no earthly clue why I am so freaked out by hotel showers since I only watched the seconds of the shower scene in Psycho that are always included in those Best Film Scenes montages and thus missed the horrors of the dramatic build up, but there you have it.  I feel that at least I am in good company.  Janet Leigh adamantly refused to shower after watching the completed film because she was so terrified by it, and obviously since Jamie Lee Curtis is the progeny of Janet Leigh, Ms. Leigh must be made of awesome.  It's just logic.

Here is an interesting article in MovieMaker about the effect Psycho had on American film-making and Janet Leigh.

I WANT THAT. Have you seen the movie yet?!? It is such a dialogue-based film... there are two jump moments, and you know when they are coming. Seriously, I am a wimp when it comes to horror and I LOVE PSYCHO.

Yeah, it freaks me out...

I have not, but it is in the queue. I wish we could watch it together! :)

Once you watch the movie, that's what the curtain will look like every time you take a shower.

Oh, c'mon, dude! My promise to Louise is forcing me to pull myself up by the bootstraps and just watch the damn movie...If I am rendered incapable of showering whilst traveling henceforth, I will be very bitter toward both of you.

You will be rendered incapable of showering. Period.
