The sister of Psycho
16 May 2018 | by talonjensenSee all my reviews

A frustrated sister, unable to establish her own romantic relationship, turns psycho on her handsome, actor brother whom she lives with. Which is what you would expect from Hitchcock. The IMDB Storyline, along with my short hint is about as far as I can go without spoilers.

The twist at the end is predictable, one of three I thought of, but the acting is good. Worth watching, but I would have liked a better twist at the end.

This is mentioned as the last of the half-hour Hitchcock shows, but there is one more after this, so not sure how that happened, maybe the next one, The Sorcerer's Apprentice (1962), wasn't shown originally? Or maybe just a mistake. In general I prefer the half hour shows, which move along quite quickly, more similar to many modern shows who think something must happen all the time. However, I do still appreciate character development rather than constant action. Character development can give you better conflict, tension and emotional attachment.
