Psycho Scene 11

Scene 11

Scene 11

  • Cut to Norman in his office. He goes out to his house, and up the stairs.
  • Then from outside the room, you hear Norman arguing with his mother.
  • He wants to put her in the fruit cellar, but she says she won't go.
  • That seems reasonable. Who wants to be locked in a fruit cellar?
  • It sounds like Norman put her down there before though. Not a nice thing to do to your mother.
  • Norman finally picks her up (still off-screen) and then, from a dizzying overhead shot, you see him carrying her (or someone) downstairs.
