Dread Central Present’s own Rob Galluzzo set the internet ablaze yesterday by cluing horror fans into an upcoming re-release of the Psycho franchise in Germany. What makes this especially exciting is that it will include an uncut version of Psycho that most people (myself included) never even knew existed! For a hint at what awaits us, check out the video below; it serves as proof that an uncut version of Psycho actually exists!
As director of the documentary The Psycho Legacy, Galluzzo knows a thing or two about Alfred Hitchcock’s seminal slasher. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for the German re-issues in January 2019. In the meantime, check out the synopsis and trailer for the original Psycho below.
Phoenix secretary Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), on the lam after stealing $40,000 from her employer in order to run away with her boyfriend, Sam Loomis (John Gavin), is overcome by exhaustion during a heavy rainstorm. Traveling on the back roads to avoid the police, she stops for the night at the ramshackle Bates Motel and meets the polite but highly-strung proprietor Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a young man with an interest in taxidermy and a difficult relationship with his mother.
Psycho stars Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, and Vera Miles.
