Halloween Special – Hitchcock
Hitchcock created a psycho while Hopkins played one – perfect casting?
It feels somewhat creepy to call a movie about the making of ‘Psycho’ a love story, but that’s how Fox Searchlight and director Sacha Gervasi their Alfred Hitchcock biopic. As Halloween approaches why not celebrate with a scary movie or, at least, a movie about a scary movie.
Hitchcock opens in theaters on 23 November, which automatically puts it in contention for this year’s Oscar race. With a star studded cast including Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren and Scarlett Johansson the movie takes place during the making of 1960’s horror classic ‘Psycho.’ Perhaps the most anticipated aspects of the film is whether Hopkins can pull off Hitchcock’s somewhat unusual persona, and whether a modern interpretation of the famous shower scene will be even more shocking than the original.
So tell us: What do you think of Hopkins as Hitchcock?
