The Best Hitchcock Films Hitchcock Never Made Blogathon

How many times have you watched a movie that was clearly saluting the man known as “The Master of Suspense”? Filmmakers from Brian DePalma to D.J. Caruso and so many more have aimed for a Hitchcockian feel in their thrillers—and some of them actually did an amazingly good job of bowing to The Master! So this summer, from July 7th through July 12th, Tales of the Easily Distracted and ClassicBecky’s Brain Food are celebrating filmmakers who love Hitchcock. The idea is to not review Alfred's own films, but those that have a Hitchcockian feeling and Hitchcockian elements in them.  For example, North by Northwest shares a lot of themes with The Prize (1963), Psycho surely inspired DePalma's Dressed to Kill (1980) not to mention more than a couple more. A film doesn't have to be based on or inspired by any particular AH film, either: Charade (1963) and Arabesque (1966) certainly have the freewheeling terror that a great Hitchcock film does.  For more information, click here.
