Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO

Synopsis:

The Alex Film Society Presents Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO

Saturday, February 13th 2010 at 2:00pm and 8:00pm

Alfred Hitchcock used his television crew, shot in black and white on a tight schedule and produced one of the most terrifying films in Hollywood history.

Anthony Perkins defined the loony Norman Bates whose devotion to his dead mother has murderous intent. Janet Leigh and a photo double endured hundreds of camera setups to produce the shower scene that is still taught in editing master classes.

The murderous set pieces are so well done that audiences still jump with fright even when they know what is coming. Robert Bloch penned the original novel and Bernard Herrmann’s score adds punch at just the right moments.

Event running time is approximately 2 hours.
