Read from the Book

Two strangers meet on a train and plan a criss-cross murder; a wheelchair bound photographer passes the time by spying on his neighbors through his rear window; an American couple’s son is kidnapped while vacationing abroad and they get embroiled in an assassination plot; a young woman is stabbed to death in the shower by an unknown assailant; flocks of birds inexplicably attack a seaside town. All of these ideas films have the indelible stamp of one director – Alfred Hitchcock, a master of suspense and the macabre. He said, “I think of the films I make as fantasies. They are not slices of life, they are slices of cake.”
