78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene

78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene

It’s a screen moment to treat with total reverence - and so enduring it could sustain “78/52: Part 2.” – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times

With 78 shots and 52 cuts over the course of 3 minutes, Psycho redefined screen violence, set the stage for decades of slasher films to come, and introduced a new element of danger to the moviegoing experience. The screeching strings, the plunging knife, the slow zoom out from a lifeless eyeball: in 1960, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho changed film history forever with its taboo-shattering shower scene. Featuring Guillermo del Toro, Bret Easton Ellis, Jamie Lee Curtis, Eli Roth, and Peter Bogdanovich.
