Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection Now Available on 4K Ultra HD with Uncut Version of 'Psycho'


Announced earlier this year, Universal has today released The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection, a 4-film 4K Ultra HD set containing some of Hitchcock's finest works, including Psycho, The Birds, Vertigo and Rear Window.


Undoubtedly one of the biggest home media releases of the fall, the collection includes the uncut version of Psycho, which features around 4 minutes of additional footage that was cut from the original film. Released in Germany back in 2018, the uncut version of the 1960 horror classic is now available on home video for the first time ever here in the states.


"This collection with collectible Discbook packaging includes hours of bonus features such as documentaries, expert commentaries, interviews, screen tests and much more," Universal details.


A brand new Psycho 4K Ultra HD Steelbook is also available exclusively from Best Buy, but it's currently unknown if that release contains the uncut version.
