How BATES MOTEL Restored The PSYCHO “Legacy”

There was a very distinct reason I took it upon myself, with no actual filmmaking experience, to make THE PSYCHO LEGACY documentary. And the finale for A&E’s hit series BATES MOTEL solidified that reason. Plain and simple, I wanted the PSYCHO “legacy” to continue and I feared that, at the time that I started it, […]

I don’t know how the hell I got the opportunity to be the moderator on several horror titles that sit proudly in my Blu-Ray collection; movies that I would’ve bought regardless of if I had anything to do with their releases.

Review: PSYCHO: SANITARIUM – Bringing Back Robert Bloch’s Norman Bates!

Confession – it’s takes me a really long time to read a book. It’s not for lack of trying! But unlike with a TV show, which I have no problem binge-watching on my couch in my pajamas over the course of one long weekend, books are more a special affair. I like to take my […]

Have A Look At This Long-Lost PSYCHO Deleted Footage!

This footage has been floating around the internet for years, but as someone who cites the original 1960 Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece, PSYCHO, as one of my all-time favorite films, it’s always good to revisit, analyze and discuss.

The Exploitation Of Anthony Perkins’ PSYCHO Connection

In today’s modern age of moviemaking and celebrities, it doesn’t seem that typecasting is as big a worry for actors the way it used to be.
