Trailer for Documentary ’78/52′ Dissects the Shower Scene from ‘Psycho’

Jason McDonald

This sounds uniquely ambitious.  Imagine take one scene from one movie and devoting a whole documentary to it.  That’s what director Alexandre O. Phillippe has done with the legendary shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.”

Documentary “78/52,” named so for the 78 set-ups and 52 cuts in the scene, will examine the shower scene frame by frame and present analysis and commentary from the likes of Eli Roth, Guillermo Del Toro, Jamie Lee Curtis, and more.  Check out the first trailer below.

“78/52” will hit theaters and be available for VOD on October 13th.
