“Ideas come from everything”
Alfred Hitchcock

“Fear isn't so difficult to understand. After all, weren't we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf.

Alfred Hitchcock

“There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.”
Alfred Hitchcock
