From Recreating Hitchcock to Motion-Activated Shower Curtains

 - Jun 13, 2011
Alfred Hitchcock's genius is going strong long after his demise and hese Psycho-inspired innovations demonstrate that the film buff left a lasting impression on the world of pop culture.

Recreations of the famous Psycho shower scene are abundant, and these finds show just how many varieties can be done on the same subject. A bloody editorial has hints of the scene with a model posed in blood-soaked attire, knife in hand. Although other films have been done with similar themes since then, Psycho was the first to inspire these bloody attacks with a razor-sharp knife in such graphic detail. Advertising agencies are also using Psycho to sell goods such as shower curtains. These Psycho-inspired finds demonstrate just how much influence Hitchcock still has after death.
