See Uncut Scenes from Alfred Hitchcock's PsychoReally interesting stuff has slipped online today pertaining to Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece of terror Psycho. Apparently longer, bloodier, and racier scenes exist in the German cut of the film, and we have every one of them for you right here.

An extended and unrated cut of the film has aired on German television that was home to a few scenes that were just too much for U.S. censors back in 1960. This longer cut has never been available on Blu-ray or DVD anywhere, and it’s a real treat seeing these lost scenes in their full gory glory. Now that these excised moments have seen the light of day and are officially out there, we wouldn’t be a bit surprised if that doesn’t change A.S.A.P.

      The footage does a bit more brutality to the scenes. I am with you Vanvance1, I wonder what Hitchcock’s opinion on the cut scenes was?

      The thing that strikes me is how could Universal not have known/had this footage in the vault to include with the Legacy Series Special Edition release? It amazes me how extra footage from such important and popular films can still be ‘discovered’? Seems like there would be a few full time employees who do nothing but organize the vaults?

      Very cool.

      I’m purposely not watching these because I want to see them in the context of the whole movie.

      The next blu of Psycho should definitely give us an alternate cut. I’d also love to know if Hitchcock wanted these scenes in the film.
