I have just watched a film called Hitchcock, it is based on Alfred Hitchcock who was an English Film director. The film is about how he made one of the first ever horror films, Psycho. He had to fund the film himself due to the production companies disbelief in that horror films would be a hit, they also only let him screen it in 2 cinemas but he hyped the film up so much, using speakers outside the cinema warning people about the film, how scary it was. He also hired security guards to stand around the screenings just to intimidate people and make them want to go and watch it, in the end people were queuing down the streets to go and see his film even though they didn't know what it was going to be about. Psycho has one of the most iconic moments in horror film history where the actress is stabbed in the shower, this scene caused the whole audience in the cinema to jump and scream.
