How do you feel about suspense?

Suspense has only one synonym.......ALFRED HITCHCOCK. I've seen several films of the maestro and they never cease to amaze me. It gives me goosebumps to realize how he could portray the most inner aspects and fears of a mind with subtlety and thrill. His films are never too little, never too much dipped in psychological challenges and the truth of the moment. Everyone has seen Psycho at least If not, don't miss one of the greatest films of the 20th Century, please watch it! What other suspense films do you like, of Hitchcock's or others' ?

@ria1606roy It really is and I am always reminded of it around this time of year when the birds around here all gather together before going south for the winter.

Hello there and soon a happy New Year to you-- I do enjoy a good Alfred Hitchcock film as the suspense slowly envelops but is not as dark as something Edgar Allen Poe may have written . . . thanks for sharing I don't have a specific favorite of his though sorry

A happy new year to you too yes Poe has written some really dark stories, and I've been able to appreciate only a few of them, though I plan to continue it further. Thanks for sharing your view on this.

You are welcome, so far a good year begins BUT we still have the 'little Christmas' celebration the Eastern Orthodox religion recognizes on January 6th and 7th to finish up this holiday time with . . . @ria1606roy

One of the top Hitchcock films I liked the motion of the camera, from one window to the other. And the thrilling yet funny ending

@marlina so true yeah. Rear Window is a hallmark film opening up avenues created by the master.

Alfred Hicthcock's name is synonym with thrill and suspense. I've read about the movie psycho but did not get an opportunity to see it. I will surely watch it, as soon as I get a chance.

@dpk262006 I wasn't that unlucky lol. My friend suggested to me in her house and we started watching it that way. By the end we were crushing each other's hands, so frightened and chilled we were.

@ria1606roy - If your friend was with you when you were watching the movie then you would have managed to overcome your nervousness, fears and erratic heart beat.

I have seen all movies by Alfred Hitchcock, even the very first ones before he became famous. I love suspense movies. One of my favorite, Notorious.

Haven't seen Notorious. And his very old films are quite interesting.

@LadyDuck that I have seen! North by Northwest was very thrilling. Hitchcock's one of the best package films I've seen.

Action packed movies are my favorite too, provided it has a good story too.

Some of Hitchcock's movies are based on love stories too, like North by Northwest.

I prefer suspense to blood and guts all over the place. Hitchcock's movies are among my favorites.
