This writer caught up with genre journalist and documentary filmmaker Robert Galluzzo this past Tuesday night at the Burbank, CA hot spot of horror, Dark Delicacies, as he celebrated the release of his documentary The Psycho Legacy (which that day released nationwide via Shout! Factory) with a well attended, in-store DVD signing.
It seemed an appropriate evening to pick his brain as fans and Psycho alumni arrived en masse, as did an intimidating lightning storm that hovered over the Los Angeles basin, not unlike the one Psycho star Janet Leigh drove through on her way to her eventual demise in the original 1960 Hitchcock classic, which, along with its sequels, served as the inspiration for Galluzzo’s The Psycho Legacy.
Galluzzo happily took some time out from the festivities to wax on the trials and tribulations of his long-in-the-making documentary (read our review of The Psycho Legacy here) as well as »
Have you ever gotten excited about a new DVD coming out, only to be disappointed with the lack of special feature content? It happened to Robert V. Galluzzo a few years back and instead of ranting and raving on message boards and commenting in articles, he did something about it: He made a documentary.
A lifelong horror fan who had contributed as a journalist on numerous horror sites before creating his own site, Icons of Fright, he discovered that when Psycho II and Psycho III were released on DVD back in 2005, there were absolutely no special features. He began to discover that there just wasn't a lot of information out there. Particularly on the sequels to Alfred Hitchcock's original 1960 classic, Psycho.

With nearly every horror franchise receiving the documentary treatment these days, it's not surprising that Hellraiser is among them. Today, we've got some early details for you on behind-the-camera talent.
Dark Knight Pictures announces that Stefan Hutchinson (Halloween: 25 Years of Terror) will direct the definitive documentary with our good friend Ryan Rotten on scripting duties. Anthony Masi (His Name Was Jason) will handle producing details.
Really looking forward to this one. While I'd argue that there are only three films in the Hellraiser series (unless someone wants to release the longer cut of Bloodline), I'm really curious to see how the direct-to-video Dimension era is handled.
