Not every psychotic is a Norman Bates...
11 August 2014 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately, this isn't one of the better episodes of our beloved TV series hosted by our beloved Alfred Hitchcock - it starts out as a quaint kind of 'love quintet', and later on concentrates on the sick fantasies of a young man obsessed by his love for beautiful 'Annabel'.

Quite obviously, Hitch was trying to borrow some elements from "Psycho" here - but, not every psychotic is a Norman Bates, and not every actor is an Anthony Perkins... And if you forgive me for saying so, 'Annabel', the way the episode portrays her, is really just about as dumb a 60s' chick as there could possibly be! Some eerie moments and shock elements just about make the whole thing a LITTLE more than average...
