Wow. Two of my favorite and over-maligned movies debuted on the same day: Disney’s sci-fi epic, The Black Hole, marking their initial plunge into PG territory, and Spielberg’s ode to calamitous chaos and wonton mass-destruction, 1941.

If you believe the rumors, Robert Bloch, unhappy with the state of formulaic horror films, penned a novel, Psycho II (1982), which showed Norman Bates escaping from an asylum so he can head to Hollywood and knock off those filming a bio-pic based on his homicidal exploits because it wasn’t hewing close enough to what really happened (– but not before he makes a pitstop to take out Lila and Sam Loomis, who married after the grisly events of Psycho, which, you may recall, Bloch wrote the screenplay for.) This, in turn, in a true testament to the box-office results of the Stalk ‘n’ Slash boom that Bloch was aping, found Universal resurrecting the Psycho franchise to cash in on both. And to their credit, not only did they get the rights from Paramount, they also managed to talk Tony Perkins into reprising the role of Norman Bates, and the movie turned out much better than Bloch’s novel, which I found to be pretty freakin’ terrible.

This post is part of the For the Love of Film Blogathon, a new age telethon to raise funds for The National Film Preservation Foundation to help bring The White Shadow (a/k/a White Shadows), an early silent film that a certain master of suspense did just about everything for except direct — assistant director, screenwriter, film editor, production designer, art director, and set decorator, to the streaming masses and help defray the costs of adding a new musical soundtrack.
