Chilling Supercut Of Psycho Close-ups

Alfred Hitchcock or simply, The Master, is arguably the greatest director in history. His 1958 film Vertigo recently supplanted Citizen Kane as Sight and Sound magazine’s greatest of all time, and as the years pass, his stature only seems to grow.

He invented practically every trick in the book but one that is instantly recognisable as Hitchcockian is the super-tight close-up, particularly evident in his horror masterpiece Psycho.

So, pay attention all you would-be film directors out there, London-based editor Matt Anderson has helpfully done a supercut of all the close-ups used in that film and the effect is both chilling and educational. 

Study hard and be careful in the shower.
