  1. The movie Hitchcock really dives into the origin of the movie Psycho. It even begins with an Alfred Hitchcock presents style reenactment of Ed Geins first murder

I’d always heard the Texas Chainsaw Massacre was created after the creator saw a chainsaw display while standing in line at Montgomery Wards, and fantasized about using the chainsaw to clear his way through the line. Leatherface was created based on a story director Tobe Hooper heard from a doctor about making masks from a cadaver in his pre-med days.
