Set the Stage Better, So It Works
26 May 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The young guy who is at the center of this episode is so unlikeable that I never cared what happened to him. He seems to be the hard case in his family. All he wants to do is go to movies and vicariously live them. I think if this were not a fictional presentation, the guy would need to spend time in an institution. In his reverie, he finds himself facing zombies, being attacked by Norman Bates, and all manner of fears. Eventually, he will wake up screaming. His parents want him to get a girl. I wonder if that was the advice Jeffrey Dahmer received from his mom and dad. Apparently, there is a girl in the neighborhood who has no sense priorities who wants to spend time with this guy. She is cute but he blows her off when she asks him to come to her birthday party. After this encounter, accosted by his family, he runs out of the house and ends up in a movie theater that he thought had closed years ago. When he enters the the auditorium, he finds he has been put down at the motel, run by Norman Bates. He is in the first room (ask Janet Leigh) and on the hill is that creepy house. Amazingly, his clothes disappear and he is wearing a dress, the one worn by Marion Crane, Bates' victim in the shower scene. It is all so haphazard and lacking in a kind of continuity that little suspense builds. The whole Hitchcock thing could have been lots of fun, but it just dies on the vine.
