Happy anniversary! It was exactly 58 years ago on this day, September 8, 1960, that Alfred Hitchcock’s legendary thriller, Psycho, was released to theaters throughout the United States. This mega-mash film tribute uses OTHER films with certain themes or subplots reminiscent of Psycho, from glimpses of the shower scene to the “hook” (the sudden possession of $50,000 or, in this case, a book with a seal that can’t be opened) that leads our heroine to her destiny (the shower again), from a concerned, snoopy sister investigating the scary mansion that holds the secret of her sister’s plight to the deceased heroine’s former boyfriend entering the motel office to chat up the manager, with a surprising and delightful twist. The video is presented using the original score by Bernard Herrmann, who also created the memorable score for Vertigo two years earlier. in glorious black and white. Enjoy.
