Dogwoof has released a new clip from their upcoming documentary 78/52, a new film focussing upon the classic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s legendary Psycho.
Featuring interviews with Walter Murch, Peter Bogdanovich, Guillermo del Toro, Jamie Lee Curtis, Osgood Perkins, Danny Elfman, Eli Roth, Elijah Wood, Bret Easton Ellis, Marli Renfro – Body double for Janet Leigh in Psycho, Karyn Kusama, Neil Marshall, Richard Stanley and many more.
An unprecedented look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, the ‘Man behind the Curtain’, and the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema. 78/52 references the number of set-ups (78) and the number of cuts (52) in the shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. One entire week out of the four weeks scheduled to shoot Psycho — a full quarter of the film’s production schedule — was dedicated to the infamous shower scene.
The new clip features interviews with Guillermo Del Toro, who, among others, discusses the shower scene in the movie, and the trap that Hitchcock set for audiences.
78/52 opens in UK cinemas on November 3rd.
