APRIL is a month of true ORIGINALS. Hitchcock's PSYCHO is a perfect example. Credited with inventing the genre of the modern horror film, PSYCHO has had its share of sequels and imitators, none of which diminishes the achievement of this shocking and complex horror thriller.
We're combining it with a Hamilton Film Festival short film, The Killers, directed by Darren Cranford.
''No other Hitchcock film had a greater impact… it connects directly with our fears: Our fears that we might impulsively commit a crime, our fears of the police, our fears of becoming the victim of a madman, and of course our fears of disappointing our mothers'' --Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN TIMES
