Revisit the Psycho shower scene with the 78/52 documentary trailer

Psycho Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock was horrified to find that people were actually taking his movie PSYCHO seriously. With the new documentary 78/52, director Alexandre O. Philippe is taking the film's shower murder sequence very seriously. Although the sequence only lasts 45 seconds, Philippe has built an entire feature around it, examining the 78 shots and 52 cuts that were used to put the sequence together.

78/52 is 

an in-depth look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" - composed of 78 setups and 52 cuts - and the screen murder that profoundly changed world cinema.

The documentary features interviews with Walter Murch, Peter Bogdanovich, Guillermo del Toro, Eli Roth, Elijah Wood, Danny Elfman, Bret Easton Ellis, and PSYCHO shower victim Janet Leigh's daughter Jamie Lee Curtis.

IFCFilms will be releasing 78/52 in theatres and On Demand on October 13th, and have released a trailer for the documentary that can be seen below.

As a fan of PSYCHO, I will be checking this out once it's available. Chris Bumbray got a chance to watch 78/52 a few months ago and gave it a 6/10 review.
