When Saul Bass first appears onscreen in an interview, a caption identifies him as "Director of Psycho shower sequence." Bass did do the storyboards for the famous scene in Psycho (1960), but his claims later in his life to have been the director of them have been debunked by Janet Leigh, among others (see also the trivia for Psycho).

Fear is the most powerful emotion in the human race and fear of the unknown is probably the most ancient, so you're dealing with stuff that everybody's felt from being little babies: we're frightened of the dark, we're frightened of what we don't know about; and if you're making a horror film you get to play with the audience's feelings.

Documentary on horror films of interest for the appearance of veterans of the horror filed, notably the late Robert Bloch. Never really goes into much detail and shows a bias towards gorier films especially the British variety. The narration by Christopher Lee is a definite plus, however.
