The ways in which Hitchcock's 'Psycho' has influenced more modern day slashers.

Psycho's infamous scene of the girl getting murdered in the shower, has had a mighty impact on the rest of slasher films. It was a huge hit when it was released, and even to this day film makers have gained inspiration from that particular scene and have even incorporated aspects of it in their own slasher movies.
We watched a clip from 'What Lies Beneath' in class and noticed that the director chose to include a bath and a running shower. The director clearly took liking to the bathroom setting, and I too agree that it is an iconic setting to shoot a murder scene.
