Fifty years ago this week, Alfred Hitchcock gave the world a terrifying glimpse at the secret evil that lurks behind the eyes of our avian friends in The Birds.
The biggest horror hit of last year was Sinister, starring Ethan Hawke as a true crime writer who gets embroiled in the supernatural hauntings that killed the family in his most recent work.
Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection is the second enormous, remastered collection to come from Universal in the last month or so (the first being the Universal Monsters Collection.) The 15-disc set includes some of Alfred Hitchcock’s most well-known films - and some lesser-knowns: Saboteur, Shadow of a Doubt, Rope, (one of my favorites of the lesser-known films, along with Lifeboat which, sadly, is not in this set) Rear Window, The Trouble with Harry, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Vertigo, North by Northwest, Psycho, The Birds, Marnie, Torn Curtain, Topaz, Frenzy, and Family Plot.
HBO just released the official trailer for their Alfred Hitchcock/Tippi Hedren flick The Girl.
