Hitch’s Psycho – Janet Leigh recreated

From http://www.vanityfair.com, where some classic Hitch poses are recreated with modern actors.

Man, some of these actors are so bad that they don’t even convince in snapshots!

Some of the shots are OK though.

Here’s Edith Piaf or someone taking a shower and soon regretting it!

Is it difficult to imagine Frenchies taking a shower? Course not!

The original shot of Janet Leigh is infinitely better though! Demented, nay Demonic! Iconic. Classic. Fucked up!

Hitch really knew how to make his leading ladies nigh insane! Alfie boy had more than a few mommy issues!

The 2008 Hollywood Portfolio

Hitchcock Classics
Alfred Hitchcock left a peerless legacy of the stylishly macabre. In this year’s Hollywood Portfolio, Keira Knightley, Javier Bardem, Seth Rogen, and other stars channel iconic moments from the director’s greatest hits. Here are the results.
Don’t miss Jim Windolf’s behind-the-scenes report.
Plus: video from the making of the portfolio.

A lot is made of the influence on Hitchcock’s films of his father, “a rather nervous man” who once locked his six-year-old son in a local jail for misbehavior. Less is known about Hitchcock’s mother. We do know that they had a close relationship; so close, in fact, that she accompanied him on holidays with his wife. Older women in Hitchcock’s films are rarely treated with kindness, however, and tend to be scolding, obnoxious, doddering. But it was not until Psycho that a mother was treated as a homicidal maniac, even if by proxy.

The original still: Janet Leigh.
