78/52 (15)


An unprecedented look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960), the "man behind the curtain", and the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema.

The critical consensus

Nimbly striking a balance between fun flashback and serious discussion, 78/52 is an engaging and insightful companion piece to a truly influential piece of cinema.

There’s rather too much fluff, but the good stuff is really good.

David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 30/10/2017

Psycho’s accepted greatness means we can leave it on the shelf as we look for newer sensations. This prompts an urgent desire to revisit it.

****(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 30/10/2017

78/52 is a fascinating affair, bound to appeal to movie lovers and social theorists alike even if it does sometimes seem more like a film studies lecture than a conventional piece of entertainment.

Movie buffs and Hitchcock fans will adore this fascinating insight into a classic.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 03/11/2017

There’s too much detail, not enough thought, in this analysis of the infamous shower scene.
