Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho reshaped what horror cinema was conceived to be - a combination of pulp dread and high art that made it very clear that even spaces of domestic intimacy were fair game for brutality. This entertaining and fascinating documentary takes the famous shower sequence and examines society in 1959, Hitchcock's meticulous process, the film's vast influence in the years since and how, with 78 camera set-ups and 52 cuts, one of the most enduring and iconic scenes in cinema was wrought. Definitely see Psycho before you watch.
