The Psycho Collection – Limited Edition 4K UHD and Blu Ray

psycho blu ray collection

Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho changed cinema forever when it was released in 1960, shocking audiences and being one of the most successful horror films of the era. It took twenty years for a sequel to be made by  Richard Franklin and it was an excellent successor to the classic original.

Psycho 3 took a new direction with the film’s star Anthony Perkins making his directorial debut which was a very stylish take on the original story. Psycho IV: The Beginning, written by Joseph Stefano (screenwriter of the 1960 original) and directed by the master of horror Mick Garris, returns to the primal scene to show us how it all began in Anthony Perkins’ final franchise appearance.

Now presented together for the first time in the UK on 4K UHD and Blu-ray, featuring all-new restorations of Psycho II, III and IV from the original camera negatives, Arrow Video invites you back inside the Bates Motel and wishes you a very atmospheric stay.
