The most universal aspect of horror is its power to make us realize that evil might be a lot closer – and a lot more unpredictable – than we want to acknowledge.
Few films have tapped into that mysterious and terrorizing aspect of the great unknown. Alfred Hitchcock managed to do it with the masterful Psycho.

Kara Danvers is the errand girl for media mogul Cat Grant. She is content knowing that the world doesn’t need another hero – her cousin, Superman, has it covered. Until one day, her foster sister’s plane is going to crash, and Kara flies to the rescue.
