Retro Picture Show presents Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO followed by PSYCHO II. Both screening on 35mm at Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, NY on Friday, May 12, 2017.
Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO (1960)
[Description from back of VHS] Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose “old dark house” and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. No one knows that better than Janet Leigh, the film’s ill-fated heroine who is victimized in the now-notorious “shower scene.” Vera Miles, Martin Balsam, John Gavin, and John McIntire co-star in Hitchcock’s most compelling and terrifying film. (US, 1960, 109 mins, Dir. Alfred Hitchcock, 35mm)
PSYCHO II (1983)
[Description from back of VHS] In 1960, Alfred Hitchcock shocked audiences around the world and made screen history with his horror masterpiece, Psycho. Now, 22 years later, the Bates Motel is back in business and screams of terror are once again being heard as the long-awaited sequel, Psycho II, comes to the screen. Anthony Perkins, who starred as Norman Bates, and Vera Miles, who played the sister of the shower murder victim, recreate their memorable roles from the original. In addition, movie buffs will be heartened to know that the producer of the film was Hitchcock’s first assistant director in Psycho, and the director is a serious Hitchcock scholar. (US, 1983, 113 mins, Dir. Richard Franklin, 35mm)
