When you think of Dracula, who do you imagine? Probably Bela Lugosi, the actor who made vampires synonymous with slick black hair and a widow's peak. Norman Bates will forever be Anthony Perkins in my head; Jack Torrance is Jack Nicholson and Annie Wilkes is Kathy Bates. But that is not exactly how Bram Stoker, Robert Bloch, and Stephen King imagined their characters.
Having examined, investigated and completely broken down the ins and outs of the entire 'Psycho' franchise for my documentary project 'The Psycho Legacy,' I’ve managed to become pretty well versed in the mythology and time-line of all the events as they take place within the universe set up by Sir Alfred Hitchcock in his 1960 adaptation of the Robert Bloch novel 'Psycho' right through to the final prequel/sequel of that particular franchise with 'Psycho IV: The Beginning.'
