Did You Know?


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, 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).

[first lines]
John Carpenter: 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.

Frightening and insightful.
7 January 2004 | by (West Deptford, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

This documentary was acquired by yours truly through a video rental store nearly a decade ago and it scared the hell out of me. It coaxed me to watch the various films it discussed like THE EXORCIST, PSYCHO, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, and more! A couple months ago, I bought an original copy of this rare gem off of EBAY. This was a wonderfully crafted documentary that surely satisfied fans before 100 YEARS OF HORROR came along. Christopher Lee narrating was nice and we are given surprisngly a lot of screen time for Robert Bloch and other masters of the craft, musing about the meaning of fear and how film achieves the goal of scaring and haunting us. If you can track it down, kudos! Meanwhile, I'm going to see whether or not I can't undertake a restoration of this gem. But, that's another story.
