Here comes psycho-mom! Yup, here comes one of cinema's most famous matriarchs - Mother Bates from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. Mother stands 14-inches tall and features a soft, floppy, poseable cloth body and rotocast head, hands, and feet. Norman's mom wears her screen-accurate dress and shawl, and her head and hands are sculpted with intricate detail. Her gaping mouth forever frozen in a deathly skeletal grin beneath the hollow sockets of her eyes, Mother's desiccated skin clings to her boney, gnarled, claw-like hands. She sits... and waits. Mother comes with an informative hang-tag. Motel not included, thank goodness!
Nominated for a quartet of Academy Awards, the psychological thriller Psycho not only changed the world of horror, but how movies are marketed as well. Alfred Hitchcock went to great lengths to keep audiences from revealing Mother's secret.
