Psycho - Homage to Hitchcock
Davy & Kristin McGuire’s intricate homage to ‘Psycho’ features a scene lifted straight from the iconic movie, and re-created using paper and light.
The short retells the pivotal moment in ‘Psycho’ when the female character is stabbed to death by an unknown assailant in the shower. But in the McGuire’s version, the violent murder is witnessed by the audience through the shadows in the windows of the house where the crime takes place. The soundtrack of screeching violins, violas, and cellos has an imminent sense of foreboding that Hitchcock laced all of his films with. Made for The Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award, this adaptation to paper and light illustrates the enduring nature of a film made more than 50 years ago.
