The Bates Motel will open its doors once again following its release in France last month, inviting a new generation of guests to enter one of cinema’s most iconic horror stories as Janet Leigh’s embezzling secretary falls foul of Anthony Perkins’ deranged hotelier.
Newly restored in stunning 4K, Psycho is now available in its original uncut form with 13 seconds of additional footage – previously removed by censors on release. Supported by a publicity campaign, trailer, and poster (above), Hitchcock’s chilling classic can now be seen as the legendary director intended.
