If we talk about directors who have marked a before and after in cinema, clearly we cannot fail to mention Alfred Hitchcock. Due to his creativity, he became one of the most acclaimed filmmakers.
In addition to standing out as a director, he has also worked as a screenwriter and producer. He became a pioneer of several of the techniques that are part of the suspense and psychological thriller genres.
Throughout his film career, the filmmaker made many films that became classics and are still remembered today. However, one of them will always be his greatest success.
Alfred Hitchcock’s movie you can’t miss!
Of course, we are talking about Psycho. The film was released in 1960 and focuses on the horror and thriller genres. Behind her is Alfred Hitchcock as director, and he is accompanied by a great cast and crew. The main performances were provided by Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin, Martin Balsam and Janet Leigh. As for the script, it was written by Joseph Stefano and was based on the novel of the same name by Robert Bloch published in 1959.
The story takes place mostly in a lonely motel, where Marion Crane is staying. A secretary who ran away with money stolen from the company where she works. Said place is run by Norman Bates.
When the film was released, critics considered it to be very different from the director’s other hit, North by Northwest. This was because it had been shot on a low budget, and in black and white. With several positive comments in its favor, Psycho managed to receive four Oscar nominations: such as Best Director for Alfred Hitchcock, as Best Supporting Actress for Leigh.
?Currently, this film is considered one of the director’s best productions and is even considered a classic of cinema. So much so, that it is one of the horror films that you should watch even once in your life.
When Hitchcock died in 1980, Universal Pictures began producing sequels: three sequels, a television movie, a remake, and a small-screen series called Bates Motel.
