Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is the complete inside story on the making of psycho, the forerunner of all psychothrillers. Rebello takes us behind the scenes at the creation of one of cinemas boldest and most influential films. From Hitchcocks private files and from new in-depth interviews with the stars, writers, and technical crew we get a unique and unparalleled view of the master at work.

Rebellos carefully researched book tells us everything we could ever want to know about the making of psycho. Starting from the gruesome crimes that inspired the novel on which the film is based, he takes us through the novels adaptation into a screenplay and the films preproduction, shooting, postproduction, and ultimate reception. Rebellos technique is as painstaking and thorough as

Hitchcocks—he includes an incredible amount of detail and in doing so reveals what mattered the most to Hitchcock in the process of making his movies.
