Hitchcock & De Palma Double Feature!
1960, Universal, 109 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Coming off the comparatively big-budget NORTH BY NORTHWEST, director Alfred Hitchcock decided he wanted to make a nice little, low-budget, black-and-white film for a change of pace. This was the result, and the shock waves are still reverberating. Lovely embezzler Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) takes refuge from a rainstorm off the beaten track on a lonely California highway. Unfortunately, she checks in at the Bates Motel, presided over by young Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a strange fellow living with his mother in a nearby mansion. Hitchcock used the small crew from his popular TV show for this hair-raising example of California Gothic, and it remains one of the most influential chillers ever made. With Vera Miles and John Gavin.

1980, Park Circus/MGM, 105 min, USA, Dir: Brian De Palma

In this obsessive and beautifully made thriller, a killer stalks two very different women. Considered by many to be Brian De Palma's finest film. With Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson, Nancy Allen and Dennis Franz.

Screening format: 35mm (PSYCHO) and DCP (DRESSED TO KILL)
