Alfred Hitchock - Essential Collection contains Psycho, Rear Window, Vertigo and The Birds. It's just 4 previous older DVD versions put together. I didn't mind the fact because I didn't own these films previously. All 4 films are in their own separate cases and comes with some extras.

Rear Window comes with 2 featurettes and some trailers, art gallery.

Vertigo comes with commentary track involving people who worked on the film, 30 min featurette on restoration and production of the film, and trailer.

Psycho has only a trailer and no other extras.

The Birds has 1 hour 20 min long documentary, Tippi Hedren's screen test, Deleted scene + alternate ending( via storyboards and script pages), Universal News reel and a trailer. Picture is 4:3 aspect ratio.

Overall not bad collection for those who want to experience Hitchcock for the first time. But could have used better versions.

Even now these films stand up as well made, scary additions to horror.

Psycho does what it says on the tin succeeding to unsettle the viewer and give them a pathological fear of showers henceforth. 5/5

Vertigo has a good pace and is a quaint thriller that will deffinately entertain through out. 4/5

Rear view window is an intriguing piece of cinema that was been conceived brilliantly. Quite columbo-esque 4/5

The Birds leaves you on a cliffhanger of uncertainty after tearing your understanding of ornithological behaviour to shreds. 5/5

You cant go wrong with master storyteller Alfred Hitchcock. He knows how to set a scene,leave you guessing,and visually stimulate you to pull you into the story.What more can you ask for?

The bix set was good value and well worth watching over and over again. Classical and timeless - good use of suspense

Great Hitchcock box set that groups together 4 genuine classic Hitchcock movies. I have longer reviews on individual releases. Here you get Rear Window, Vertigo, The Birds and Psycho, so a real feel to later 50s Hitchcock. All films are 10/10 material- wonderfully shot and acted. Vertigo was recently voted the greatest movie of all time.

These were great and I loved all the movies. My particular favourite is Rear Window, to be able to create that much suspense from just looking out one window, that is amazing. Anyway fast delivery and everything in good condition, especially since I brought this as a gift for a friend as well. I just wish I could have had a couple more of his films in this collection.

Four films , all classics. Watch them over a four week period with my 15 year old son , who hadn't even heard of Hitchcock before. He loved them , especially 'Psycho'. Technically not up to today's standards but the story telling and the suspense can't be beat.

The pack contains several hours of compelling viewing by the "Master " of Suspense & Thriller. We were well entertained! Reccommended to everyone who knows what they're looking for;like the old days (1960s) Saturday Thriller Nights on BBC2.Enjoy!
