Welcome to Skating Buffalo, my blog about movies. I want to share my passion and meet other movie fans on this amazing blog journey. So "fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."
Luana: This is my favorite Hitchcock movie, too. Classic! I like to listen to it with all the lights out. SO COOL!
Zelda: Great pic for a Monday morning. Got my blood pumping.
Brilliant score from a brilliant composer. Have you ever heard the score from the 80's movie Re-Animator? YouTube the credit sequence - and let's discuss.
Craig: I will totally check it out! Thanks!
Craig: I saw the link. Is that legal? It's obviously the Psycho theme...was there a lawsuit?
Scott: My son gave me the complete set of Hitchcock DVDs a few years ago and it was one of the best gifts I've ever received. I really enjoy watching the behind the scenes features. For the record, the role of Norman Bates was tailor made for Anthony Perkins.
Zelda: The music is so compelling. People react. That's what makes it so powerful. I'm amazed at Bernard Herrmann's gift.
Luana - that horror film - Re-Animator, that is - is much beloved - but EVERYBODY complains that the score is a rip from Psycho - even Leonard Maltin in his original TV Movies book's review! I don't think there was a lawsuit, amazingly enough, but the controversy continued on so long that there's actually a special feature on the fully loaded Re-Animator DVD where composer Richard Band tries to defend his choice as an homage. I don't really buy his explanation - but I do love both movies. It's a strange world!
