I certainly did, this was the first Night film I had watched, I was like, man the way he is filming it, there is something up there, but then no, and I relaxed, and then all of a sudden an alien was there, it scared the crap out of me.   :o

Yeah, that scene is really well done. It's shows Nights level of craftsmanship as a film-maker. Very Hitchcockian.

Yea, he likes Hitchcock's style.  But, I think he is better than Hitchcock, :gasp:  :o.  I think the work Hitchcock does is good, but not that good.

To tell a feature leangth film, all from a window, without going anywhere is amazing!  You cant deny that!  The only time they left the window was when he fell onto the ground outside, but then they were back in in the morning.  Brillant!  Hitchcock was ahead of his time!

That was Rear Window right, I'm not denying that he was good, I'm just not that big a fan of him.

I am a pretty big fan of Hitchcock. I would suggest watching some of his films that aren't exactly the ones most folks know him for. I highly recommend I Confess, Dial M for Murder, and Strangers on a Train.

Younger people that make an effort to watch Hitchcock usually go for stuff like The Birds, Rear Window, Psycho first. However, I recommend the first list of films because I believe they allow people to slip into the hot bath that is Hitchcock a bit easier.



and now back to the original topic...  ;)

Allright, thanks for the tip, and back to the topic, but basically my question has been answered.

Strangers on a Train, what's that about, I've never heard of it.

No, I will.  I like how Night took out the sound of the axe,  because I forgot it was even there until I watched it the last time.  So I think it worked.

Why does Night get comparisons to Hitchcock?  Did hitchcock ever do any writing?

I think it is the style of the tow directors.  Not neccesarily horror, but scary, suspensful, very clear cut, good pacing, and just making good all around films.
