Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 black-and-white, low-budget film Psycho gave birth to the modern psychological thriller. Instead of using the expensive production crew from his previous North by Northwest, Hitchcock used the TV crew from his budget-minded weekly television series and crafted a classic that broke standard Hollywood conventions both visually and in screenplay. Quite unexpectedly, star Janet Leigh was brutally murdered one-third of the way through the movie and then teenage heartthrob Anthony Perkins was cast as a stuttering, mild-mannered psycho-killer. In addition, the always-lurking police detective (played by Martin Balsam), instead of solving the crime, becomes a victim of the sexually confused youth. Instead of his usual symphonic orchestra, Bernard Herrmann used only the string section to generate dread and suspense. Director Jeff Herberger stitches together the film's production history using seldom-seen archival footage and commentary from current film historians, bringing the film's preproduction, production and postproduction to vivid life, demonstrating why Psycho is one of Hitchcock's greatest films. Featuring live interviews with Janet Leigh, Patricia Hitchcock (Alfred's daughter) and Dorothy Herrmann (daughter of composer Bernard), True Fear: The Making of Psycho is a feature documentary containing onscreen commentary from film historians David Sterritt, Erik Kristopher Myers, George Stover, Gary J. Svehla, Gus Russo, Aaron Christensen and Michael G. Mack. Director Jeff Herberger and Midnight Marquee Productions demonstrate why Psycho has become one of Alfred Hitchcock's defining classics.
