great review - oh, and concerning your "when animals attack"-topic... what about "Swarmed" with Michael Shanks. This movie has my personal horror - it is much more frightening then ghosts, aliens and monsters (because there is no real prove, that they exist)... it is about "paravespula germanica" - the (made up) german wasp.

This review was made better by the Blockbuster Chick narration. I'd love to see her do more narration work for the Booth. I never did like birds, especially the asshole crows, magpies and seagulls.

I agree. I really thought Blockbuster Chick's contribution upped the level of this review. Which I really enjoyed, by the way. I read that story way back when, I think in high school, and I remember it being pretty chilling stuff.

Glad you two liked it. =)

Nice thoughtful comparison! Super tiny nit-pick based on a personal pet-peeve, but screenwriters tend to get short shrift -- the screenplay wasn't written by Hitchcock, though he did work with and give notes/feedback/instructions to the guy who wrote it (Evan Hunter). Not that you said he wrote it, but I feel like the guy who wrote the screenplay should get some credit for some of the stuff you praised. But giving all credit to the director is pretty standard ever since the development of the "auteur theory" and I can understand you don't have time or interest in discussing every aspect of the movie so I don't blame you for doing anything unusual, just a tiny thing I'm throwin' out there based purely on a minor irritation of mine that's irrelevant to the quality of your video. Thanks for the stimulating discussion. I enjoyed Blockbuster Chick's reading from the book as well, thought it was excerpts from a professional audiobook until I remembered the credit at the bottom of your description.

... I did specifically mention Evan Hunter in this video and more importantly the instructions he was given by Hitchcock before writing. O_o

Apparently my pay-attention-dumbass medication hasn't kicked in.
