Alfred Hitchcock wanted Psycho to be a comedy

Few things are more subjective than comedy; to some, ‘Arrested Development’ is hilarious, while others like it when a transvestite stabs a girl to death in a shower. According to the Daily News, Alfred Hitchcock was the latter.

It is one of the most critically-acclaimed horror films in cinematic history, but Alfred Hitchcock says he was ‘horrified’ when moviegoers took his subversive 1960 classic Psycho seriously.
In a 1964 (interview newly discovered) in the BBC archives, the director says he intended the film to be a dark comedy made ‘rather tongue-and-cheek’.
Hitchcock took the helm on a screenplay based on serial killer Ed Gein.

Oh well then he should have focused more on Gein making dresses out of the women he killed. There could have been a ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ or ‘Three’s Company” moment where Gein has two dates on the same night at the same restaurant, and he’d have to run back and forth to each table all flustered. And at one point his vagina could fall on the floor as he approaches the table, and his date would be like, “Good heavens!” But then Gein would play it off and put his keys it in like it was a purse. This is just off the top of my head but you get the idea.

    There are times where being illiterate could end up being a blessing.

    Instead of bitching about every post, try one of the other half billion sites in the world if you don’t like it here.

    Thx kubo. Do you have any recommendations? Or should I just tell you to lick my balls? If you can give me one good link I will bow down to you. If you just say search the Internet, then fuck you.

    If you want stuff in the same vein, try any of the UPROXX sites. WarmingGlow and FilmDrunk are two of my favorites. If you want similar stuff related to sports, WithLeather and KissingSuzyKolber are good. KSK is the “heavier” of the two.

    If you’ve seen them before or disagree, then you should probably just search the Internet.
