On today’s episode, I talked with Alex Wilson, the man who designed the brilliant logo you see on your screen. Alex picked 1960’s Psycho considered to be the origin and the inspiration for almost every modern horror film with director Alfred Hitchcock’s original themes, roles, and camera techniques that eventually became horror hallmarks for decades to come.
Psycho follows the story of Marion Crane, a secretary at a real estate company in Phoenix Arizona who is hooking up with a California based pilot named Sam. When a moment to escape that life dull life and to be with her lover, presents itself, Marion takes it on the road. Instead of meeting Sam, she runs into trouble until she finds a back road motel to shelter her from the storm, little does she know, an even bigger deluge is on the horizon.
As per Hitchcock’s tradition, we will not be discussing certain moments or reveals (as people probably know them without knowing them and plus we want people to discover them while watching Psycho on their own. Yes, I know it’s a 60-year-old film. This tradition goes back to when the film was first brought to theaters, he was one of the first and only directors to mandate a no late policy as people at the time would just walk in and out of movies whenever they felt like it and would wait until the film was over to see what they missed. So, sit back relax and don’t be too close to the shower.
