Old School Fridays: Psycho

It's Black Friday, so why not choose something a touch befitting for this edition of Old School Fridays! I'm keeping up the trend of Hitchcock classics with the original theatrical trailer for Psycho. Check it out:

I love how this trailer is hosted by the Master of Suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock. Hitch was at top of his game with Psycho, it was kind of one of those films that just suited him perfectly. This trailer, while a touch on the lengthy side, really sets up the movie well, and if I saw it back in the '60s I'd probably go see it. Of course, nowadays audiences would want the trailer to make this look like a gory-slasher flick rather than a psychological thriller.

And that does it for this Friday. Tune in next week for another exciting edition of Old School Fridays!
