Icons Of Fright Productions has begun shooting 'THE PSYCHO LEGACY' - an independently
produced documentary project, which chronicles the entire PSYCHO franchise - including
the original movie, but focusing on the sequels, as well as the TV movies, the Robert Bloch
novels and the Innovation comic books. It's meant to examine and look at the complete
history of a pop culture icon. Norman Bates. And more importantly... Mother. Interviews
include several people involved in the making of all the PSYCHO films, as well as various
professionals currently in the horror industry whom were inspired by PSYCHO and its
sequels. The object of the film (Being produced by ICONS OF FRIGHT co-creator Robert
Galluzzo) is to both reflect and remind people that the PSYCHO films have their set place
in horror history and are still relevant and loved by genre fans of today.

Rob explains,
“I was inspired to start this documentary for a number of reasons. The
main one being a lack of one. Like many current horror filmmakers out there now, I was
at the ideal age when all the sequels came out, and there’s very little material out there
documenting the stories behind the making of those Psycho sequels. I will cover the
original movie, but there’s already so much out there about Hitchcock’s PSYCHO. I’m
really interested in answering all the burning questions fans have had through out the
years about the sequels. And I can confidently say that I’ve already uncovered never-
before-heard stories from the filmmakers involved.”

Completed interviews to be featured in THE PSYCHO LEGACY thus far include MICK GARRIS
(Director of PSYCHO IV, Creator of Masters Of Horror), TOM HOLLAND (Writer of PSYCHO
II, Director of Fright Night & Child’s Play), LEE GARLINGTON (Myrna of PSYCHO II &
PSYCHO III), KATT SHEA (Patsy in PSYCHO III, Director of Poison Ivy, The Rage: Carrie 2),
CYNTHIA GARRIS (Ellen Stevens in PSYCHO IV), Coming Soon.net journalist RYAN
"ROTTEN" TUREK, Filmmakers & PSYCHO fans ADAM GREEN (HATCHET, SPIRAL), ROLFE
KANEFSKY (There’s Nothing Out There, Nightmare Man), DAVE PARKER (The Dead Hate
The Living) and Author HAROLD SCHECHTER (DEVIANT: The Shocking True Story of ED
GEIN, The Original "PSYCHO")  

Also scheduled to appear – HILTON GREEN (Assistant Director on PSYCHO, Producer
PSYCHO II & 3, Executive Producer on PSYCHO IV: THE BEGINNING), JULIETTE CUMMINS
(Red in PSYCHO III), SHAREN CAMILLE (Holly in PSYCHO IV: THE BEGINNING), TONY
TIMPONE (Editor of FANGORIA Magazine), "SPOOKY" DAN WALKER (Bloody-Disgusting, The

Check out the official
Myspace page for more info as well as a video message from director
Mick Garris.

Currently, this documentary is a completely independent production and a labor of love for
filmmaker Robert Galluzzo.
“I’m doing this because I love these movies and it’s something I’
d personally want to see. All the other famous horror franchises have gotten either box
sets or the special edition treatment, and there’s no reason we shouldn’t be celebrating
the PSYCHO movies as well. The sequels in particular are very underrated and often
looked upon as footnotes to a masterpiece. It’s really time to examine ALL the films again
and show their relevance. Everyone I’ve spoken to so far has shown such an affinity for
PSYCHO and the prospect of a documentary about the series, so I can’t wait to share
this with the fans.”
Christopher Garetano (Horror Business, Cottonmouth) will be acting as
an associate producer on The Psycho Legacy.
