Psycho is apparently becoming quite the popular kid on the block, with this Friday’s premiere of Hitchcock, the story of the making of Psycho, starring Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren, and Bates Motel set as a prequel to Psycho. Given who’s involved in each production, we really can’t wait to see them both.
