Psycho getting 60th Anniversary 4K BluRay steelbook release

Alfred Hitchcock’s seminal 1960 horror film Psycho is getting a special 60th Anniversary release. It is available as BluRay and for the first time a very special 4K UHD SteelBook BluRay.

One of the most shocking films of all time, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho changed the thriller genre forever. After its original release in 1960, the film was censored for decades… until now. Join the Master of Suspense on a chilling journey as an unsuspecting victim (Janet Leigh) visits the Bates Motel and falls prey to one of cinema’s most notorious psychopaths – Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins). Featuring one of the most iconic scenes in film history – the famous “shower scene,” Psycho is “still terrifying after all these years” (Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide).

The disc includes two different versions of the film:

PSYCHO UNCUT
The extended version of the movie as seen in theaters in 1960 is exactly as intended by Alfred Hitchcock and now available with additional footage for the first time ever.

PSYCHO
The most widely seen version of the movie was edited for content and subsequently used for TV broadcasts, theatrical re-releases and home entertainment over the last 60 years

There are also several bonus features on the disc including

  • The Making of Psycho documentary
  • In the Master’s Shadow: Hitchcock’s Legacy
  • Hitchcock / Truffaut Interview Excerpts
  • Newsreel Footage: The Release of Psycho
  • The Shower Scene: With and Without Music
  • The Shower Sequence: Storyboards by Saul Bass Feature Commentary with Stephen Rebello (author of Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho)

The set is released 7th September 2020 and can be pre-ordered now on BluRay and 4K Steelbook.
