Coming Soon to a Theater Near You

Trailers sure were different back in the day. Check out this one for Psycho. Alfred Hitchcock takes the viewer on a little tour of the Bates' motel and home. The music is so weirdly cheerful, and Hitchcock alludes to creepy things but never goes very far, at least until the end.

Also check out the rest of IFC's Top 50 Trailers. There's totally an art to the trailer, and these people get it. (And yay for Monday time wasters!)
