Exclusive Interview: “78/52” Director Alexandre O. Philippe on Dissecting “PSYCHO’s” Shower Scene, Part One
Now in select theaters and on VOD from IFC Films under the IFC Midnight banner, 78/52 is a penetrating documentary that delves into Alfred Hitchcock’s horror classic PSYCHO, and specifically the iconic shower murder of Marion Crane, in unprecedented detail. RUE MORGUE got an exclusive chat with director Alexandre O. Philippe about this fascinating film study.
A truly penetrating documentary, Alexandre O. Philippe’s 78/52 takes a fascinating look at Alfred Hitchcock’s classic PSYCHO and its legendary shower murder. A new trailer has arisen for the movie, which sees release in October.
The pitch on the documentary 78/52 is that it’s an in-depth exploration of the shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO, arguably the most famous onscreen murder in film history. Yet while the horrible fate of Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) is certainly dissected in depth, 78/52 (named for the number of camera setups and shots employed to depict the killing) uses it as a springboard to examine PSYCHO in toto as a groundbreaking shocker and a movie that continues to impress and inspire today.
