Alfred Hitchcock was known to his audiences as the “Master of Suspense” and what Hitchcock mastered was not only the art of making films but also the task of taming his own raging imagination. Director of such works as Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds and Rear Window, Hitchcock told his stories through intelligent plots witty dialogue and a spoonful of mystery and murder. In doing so, he inspired a new generation of filmmakers and revolutionized the thriller genre, making him a legend around the world. Hitchcock directed more then a hundred films, my personal favorites just so happens to be his only two films made that qualify as out and out horror movies, Psycho and the Birds.
Alfred Hitchcocks powerful, complex psychological thriller, Psycho (1960) is the “mother” of all modern horror suspense films It rewrote the book on a genre that was beginning to show some signs of age and was in dire need of a fresh infusion of cinematic blood. With one bold and bloody stroke, Psycho revolutionized not only the horror genre but the world of film itself, ushering in a new style of filmmaking that would flourish over the next decade.
