One of my all time favourite films, from one of my all time favourite directors, Psycho was probably one of the first scary films I saw as a child, and the house where Norman Bates and his “mother” lived was a big part of the creepy factor. It looms large over the film like a character in itself and is instantly recognisable with its American Gothic style. This recreation is made entirely out of matchsticks, with coloured cardboard for the window interiors.
