Lisa Tate is not well. She's showing signs of instability and paranoia and she's afraid to go outside fearing that someone might harm her. Her quaint husband John, professor of English literature, cares a lot about her and tries to convince her to go to a dance class and have some fun since she loves to dance. She does so, dances to some Phil Collins with her class and feels great afterwards. Unfortunately, on her way home she runs into a hulking sleazy man who creeps her out and she becomes panicked, anxious and paranoid all over again. She runs to her house and locks herself in only to be attacked by an unseen assailant. John is shocked at what happened and when she asks him to avenge her, he agrees. However, John is tragically missing the bigger picture.

Pilot of the Original AHP Pilot!
25 August 2013 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Thirty years later, this is the pilot of the original pilot. As Hitchcock would refer to it in the original opening of his soon to be classic show, a sweet little love story called..."Revenge!" As it has the same story as it is about a wife who is unstable and thinks that a man has raped her. As her professor husband is dead set on finding the creep that this to her.

Only for her to not be so sure of herself. As she is just that, unstable. Still unlike the original where the husband was put to justice to pay for his crimes. It shows her saying she does not know why attacked her as the husband becomes confused.

Not as good as the original. But it is still Hitchcock like!
