Own the Film That Defined a Genre October 19, 2010

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., May 10 /PRNewswire/ — Hailed as one of the most influential suspense movies of its time, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho had a profound effect on how future filmmakers made movies and shaped audience expectations for generations to come. To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of one of Universal Studios’ most treasured and prestigious films, Psycho will debut for the first time ever on Blu-ray(tm) on October 19, 2010. Fans can now enjoy a superior quality, hi-def experience when viewing this re-mastered classic. Psycho will also be honored during its landmark anniversary by the esteemed 2010 Festival De Cannes. Chosen as a Cannes Classic Selection, the film will be recognized as a restored masterwork from the past.

Meticulously restored for perfect digital picture and the purest DTS HD 5.1 digital sound, the Psycho 50th Anniversary Edition takes audiences on a thrilling journey as an unsuspecting victim (Janet Leigh, The Manchurian Candidate, Bye Bye Birdie) visits the Bates Motel and falls prey to one of the silver screen’s most notorious psychopaths – Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins, Murder on the Orient Express, Les Miserables). Featuring one of the most iconic scenes in film history – the infamous “shower scene” – Psycho continues to terrify audiences today as much as it did half a century ago.

The Psycho 50th Anniversary Edition is packed with extras, including behind-the-scenes bonus features, documentaries, audio interviews and an in-depth look at the re-mastering process. Universal Studios BluWave Audio (Universal’s in-house post production sound facility) started the re-mastering process with the film’s previously preserved and restored soundtrack to create a new 5.1 mix. BluWave then contracted Audionamix, a Paris-based audio technology company, to split the original mono music source into quasi-orchestral tracks. Audionamix, a leader in soundtrack separation, then applied their breakthrough proprietary technology enabling BluWave to create a discrete 5.1 split music mix.

BluWave’s creative talent gathered the original sound effects from the Studios’ extensive effects library and, using these source materials, created a 5.1 up-mix to bring Psycho’s soundtrack up to the expectations of contemporary audiences while maintaining the original integrity of the filmmaker’s vision.

Psycho’s mono audio track will also be available for viewers who want to experience the film in its original form on its golden anniversary. This cinematic achievement from the Master of Suspense is an essential addition to every movie lover’s library.

Psycho 50th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray(tm) unleashes the power of your HDTV with perfect picture and the purest digital sound available and contains extensive bonus features including:

* Psycho Sound: A never-before-seen piece that looks at the re-mastering process required to create a 5.1 mix from the original mono elements using Audionamix technology.

I hope someone at the top knows to reconstruct the original, uncut, theatrical version of this great movie for the Blu-ray release. Many don’t realize that every “Masterpiece”, “Legends”, etc. version of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho we’ve been getting on home video for the past umpteenth years has been an edited-for-television version of it.

That’s when they cut several frames of the shot of Norman’s POV of Marion (Janet Leigh) disrobing before her shower and cut what were slightly more and/or longer shots of Norman’s bloody hands as he cleans up after Mother…

These are not insignificant edits. Hitchcock made sure those moments were edited to the exact frame he wanted in order to create a specific and devilish response in the audience.

Well, for some reason the 1970s edited-for-television version has been taken as the official version all these years and used for the home video/DVD releases. Truly an unforgivable oversight, unless the original, uncut, theatrical version simply no longer exists. Which would be a shame.

Anyway, I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

It’s about time, Universal!! Warner released North by Northwest a year ago, so it’s good to finally see someone there knows the value of the large collection of Hitchcock classics in their library. Let’s see Rear Window, Vertigo, The Birds and The Trouble With Harry soon!

This same blu-ray is available in August in the U.K. (instead of October in the U.S.) I’m sure it will be region free, and around the same price, too.

What more can say about one of the greatest films known to mankind. Psycho finally fifty years later gets the treatment it deserves. Since I was a little boy, buying a ticket to one movie and sneaking into see this movie because of its rating, solidifies itself as being the most contraversial and yet outstandingly perfect film that has ever graced the screen. We learn alot from this film, mostly because it takes us so deep into the darkest of places in the human psyche to really show its colors and even then you still are only given a glipse of what is on screen. The film stays with you for hours, days and even decades. To this day, each and every frame tingle my spine and raise the hairs on my neck. How dare you Mr. Van Sant for even attempting to remake perfection with Psycho (1998), however, all is forgiving we do have “MILK”. In the end you simply can’t touch this film, it is perfect in everyway and now it can be seen as it is supposed to be seen.

Norman Bates is one of the most interesting character I think to ever grace the screen. You see you want to know why this film is so good, try having a character that is not only a villian but a misunderstood innocent child at heart and a young man looking for love and companionship. Mr. Bates was a very disturbed individual and its sad how the rest plays out. We all take our own lessons from “Psycho” and as for Norman…well he wouldn’t even harm a fly!

The film itself is a ten in every category including top notch Cinematography, editing, acting, writing, sound and undoubtley its score.

Not exactly a review, as just about everything has been said and written about this landmark, ground breaking and unpretentious movie, made very cheaply in resources and production values, with Hitchcock’s TV series crew, but very rich in creativity and impact. It changed the narrative conventions on suspense / horror films, on the way the heroine is handled, imposed a great marketing idea, forbidding audiences into the theater once the film had started, push the boundaries on what audiences was allowed to deal with, created a “black and white” masterpiece orchestral strings-only music soundtrack, etc, etc. And of course its legacy must be mentioned, with Brian De Palma paying hommage to Hitchcock in “Carrie”, “Sisters”, “Obsession” (almost a remake of “Vertigo”), “Body Double” and especially “Dressed to Kill” as the most obvious examples, not to mention many other film makers up to this day, learning about Hitchcock from their early years to film school to making movies filled with Hitchcock’s style. The point is, Hitchcock not only influenced, but he unintentionally set up a mark for film makers to come and some films got more and more creative and daring after that.

But despite all that and most importantly, considering Hitchcock’s signature, elegant visual style and camera angles, defending the concept that films and their stories must be told by images first, rather than dialogues or voice-over narratives, where are all the other Hitchcock films on blu-ray, when so many other classics have already made it into blu-ray? Surely Hitchcock deserves much more than just and only “North by Northwest” on blu-ray so far, with Psycho coming only in October (or August in the UK). Hitchcock paved the way on how films are made and created a lot of technical never before tried landmarks in film history, both technical and creative achievements, so why is it taking so long for the obvious release of many other of his classics on blu-ray? At least Vertigo, The Birds and Rear Window are the obvious choices that should have been already released, so this is more like a wake up call to the blu-ray market and the people behind it, to release more Hitchcock films on blu-ray, if the great Martin Scorsese isn’t already doing something about it.
