The Winning Continues!

by Lillian Csernica on July 1, 2014


Still looking for answers to yesterday’s Contest Question.  That prize is still available, so go ahead and post your answer in the Comments!

Today’s question concerns that master of cinematic suspense, Alfred Hitchcock.  His movie, “Psycho,” is considered by many to be one of the scariest horror movies ever mad.  Based on the book by horror master Robert Bloch, “Psycho” has become a classic.  In my opinion, it’s the best of the many stories and movies based on the life of Ed Gein.



Now for today’s Contest Question!

What did Hitchcock’s special effects crew use for blood?

How much of it did they have to use?

Why did Hitchcock tell them to stop using it?

Get all three answers right and you WIN!

Today’s PRIZE:  In my next short story I will name a character after YOU!

    Bear is not keen at all about blood — even if it is chocolate blood. Especially this soon after breakfast! Yuck!

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

    The “blood” was chocolate syrup, and he stopped using it because Psycho was his last black and white film – dark brown syrup doesn’t substitute as well in color movies. Not sure how much was used, but a can or so, at a guess.
