The Psycho Legacy in the works

A new documentary on the making of the classic franchise


In addition to a new Alfred Hitchcock biopic – starring Anthony Hopkins – we’re also going to be treated to a spiffy new documentary on the master of suspense.

“The Psycho Legacy”, conceived by the gang behind the ‘Icons of Fright’ website (Robg is the producer), is a documentary chronicling the entire “Psycho” film franchise – including the original movie, the sequels, the TV movies, the Robert Bloch novels and the Innovation comic books. It’s meant to examine and look at the complete history of a pop culture icon. Norman Bates. And more importantly… Mother.

Interviews include several people involved in all the films, as well as various professionals currently in the horror industry whom were inspired by “Psycho” and it’s sequels. The object of the film (Being produced by ICONS OF FRIGHT co-creator Robg.) is to both reflect and remind people that the PSYCHO films have their set place in horror history and are still relevant and loved by genre fans of today.

Its believed that Lee Garlington, Mick Garris, and Tom Holland are just a couple of the “Psycho” folks that have been interviewed.
