The Genius of Alfred Hitchcock
One of the greatest film directors of all time, Alfred Hitchcock will go down in history as “The Master of Suspense”.
The man was a perfectionist when it came to making movies and he had but one desire, to
“always make the audience suffer as much as possible.”
Due to filming restrictions in Hitchcock’s time, the shock factor of gruesome gore and guts couldn’t be shown, he, therefore, had to create the same horror but without the visual aids.
Hitchcock did this by psychological suggestion, he played with the audience’s mind, building suspense so that the watcher’s imagination did the rest. As the man himself said;
“There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it”.
And this is what he specialised in, the art on anticipation.
Every Sunday from 8th July – 12th August FACT will be screening some of Hitchcock’s most popular work including Rear Window, Strangers On A Train and the terrifying Psycho as part of their Vintage Sunday specials.
In total, six of Hitchcock’s finest films will be shown at FACT and what’s more many of them are rated PG, so younger audiences can come along to appreciate a time before CGI and impressive special effects were used.
Check out the ease with which Hitchcock captivates his audiences, and also the dark humour he injects into each and every movie he made.
Quite the character and ever the showman Hitchcock even appeared in many of the movies he created, see if you can spot his brief cameos whilst watching.

Movie Night Get Together
Or instead of date night why not take a group of mates along to watch Hitchcock’s most referenced thriller movie; Psycho.
This is undoubtedly the feather in Hitchcock’s movie-making career cap as viewers watch the journey of Marion, a thief on the path to a new future with stolen cash.
Psycho was released with disclaimers in movie theatres across the world, which read;
“We won’t allow you to cheat yourself. You must see PSYCHO from the very beginning. Therefore, do not expect to be admitted into the theatre after the start of each performance of the picture. We say no one — and we mean no one — not even the manager’s brother, the President of the United States, or the Queen of England (God bless her)!”
Hitchcock believed it was key for viewers to immerse themselves in the scenes he had so painstakingly created. To make the most of their fear and intrigue he insured, from the start that his audiences were fully engaged, only then did he believe true fear could be achieved.
You’ll need your friends to reassure you no harm will come after being terrified by Hitchcock’s Psycho and the more the merrier as our super Sunday night hotel offers welcome groups of guests to stay the night at Arthouse Hotel.
