’78/52′: Official Trailer For Documentary All About Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho’ Shower Scene
  |  @   |  

If you ever needed more proof of just how important director Alfred Hitchcock is to filmmaking and film history, somebody made an entire documentary dedicated solely to one single scene from one of his movies. It also happens to be one of the most renowned scenes ever filmed.

I’m talking of course about the shower scene from Hitchcock’s 1960 horror classic, Psycho. The title of the doc, 78/52, refers to the 78 camera shots and 52 edits that went into crafting the scene. It was directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, and includes Guillermo del Toro, Bret Easton Ellis, Jamie Lee Curtis, Eli Roth, Peter Bogdanovich, and others dissecting and discussing the unforgettable sequence.

A new trailer for the movie has been released, and you can check it out below along with a previously released trailer which involves the brutal stabbing of a bunch of fruit.

  |  @   |  

Psycho IV: The Beginning
Blu-ray
Director: Mick Garris
Screenwriter: Joseph Stefano
Cast: Anthony Perkins, Henry Thomas, Olivia Hussey, CCH Pounder
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R | 96 Minutes
Release Date: August 23, 2016

Considered one of the first entries in the slasher film genre, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho introduced audiences to Norman Bates, the disturbed proprietor of the Bates Motel. Played by Anthony Perkins, Norman suffers from dissociative identity disorder, assuming his mother’s personality to escape the guilt he feels for murdering her. Whenever Norman feels attracted to another woman, “Mother” flies into a psychotic rage and kills her. The 1960 film has become one of the most recognizable and influential movies ever; the shower scene, in which Janet Leigh’s Marion Crane is stabbed to death, is the most iconic death captured on celluloid.

While Hitchcock’s original is an unforgettable part of cinematic history, the film’s sequels are rarely talked about with the same esteem.

Jamie Lee Curtis Recreates Her Mom’s ‘Psycho’ Shower Scene For ‘Scream Queens’ (Photo)
  |  @   |  

Scream Queens, a comedy-horror that takes place at a sorority house, is getting ready for its two-hour television series premiere on FOX on September 22, 2015. And with a name like Scream Queens, it’s fitting that popular scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is part of the cast.

While Curtis made her claim to fame as final girl Laurie Strode in John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic Halloween, she started out in life as Hollywood royalty. Her dad, Tony Curtis, has a lengthy filmography that includes Spartacus and Some Like It Hot, while mom Janet Leigh is best known for her role as Marion Crane in Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Psycho. Leigh’s legacy includes one of the most famous moments in movie history — the terrifying shower scene in Psycho.

Curtis, who plays Dean Cathy Munsch on the new TV show, posted a photo online of herself recreating her mom’s famous shower scene for an upcoming episode of Scream Queens.
