Horror classic: One of the most legendary uncut versions in film history will soon be available for little money

After many, many years, the wait finally came to an end in 2019: “Psycho” was officially published completely uncut for the first time – but only in an expensive collector’s edition. Now the inexpensive standard version follows.

“Psycho” (1960) is without a doubt one of the greatest horror milestones in film history – and not only because the Hitchcock classic was the first American film in which a toilet flush could be seen and heard.

Almost as famous as the film itself is also the fact that “Psycho” was only available in the cut version for decades. Uncut fetishists didn’t have any peace of mind, just like the 40 minute longer Director’s Cut of “Batman Forever” or the lost original version of “Event Horizon”. “Psycho” was at least repeatedly shown in full length on TV until the official home cinema premiere followed in 2019 – in the comprehensive “Psycho – Legacy Collection” *, for which fans had to or have to dig deep into their pockets .

From September 8th, the uncut version of “Psycho” will finally be available as an affordable standard version on Blu-ray * and for the first time in 4K *.

If you’ve always wanted to see the classic in the notorious version, whose reputation has almost resembled a gloomy legend over the decades, but can confidently do without the three sequels, the remake and background documentaries, the new edition is without all of them Extras just right for you. Because you can pre-order it now for 10 euros. Just make sure to get the right version – this * is the well-known, cut version.

For everyone else, there’s still the new edition of the “Legacy Collection” *, which was added after the first limited edition.

There are no lavish expansions in the form of completely new scenes or even storylines. Because there are only a few brief moments that once pissed off the censors – but these are hardly worrying nowadays.

The well-known theatrical version does not show the shot in which Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) takes off her bra while Norman (Anthony Perkins) watches her through a hole in the wall, as well as Norman’s bloody hands after he removed their light. In the uncut version we also see several punctures on Detective Arbogast (Martin Balsam), which were removed for the cinema Fmovies.
