“I’ve always thought that on screen you have to show the minimum to get the most out of the audience. Sometimes it is necessary to show some violence, but only if there is a strong motivation. For example, this impressionistic murder in a shower is present in Psycho […]. Now, once that scene was shown, I instilled an apprehension in the minds of viewers about the existence of a killer so that, as the film progressed, I could reduce and practically eliminate the further violence because I wanted the threat to be only. perceived “. (Alfred Hitchcock)
