TBHM: Celebrating the life of Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock year. As most Horror Fans should know already, Sir Hitchcock was a master of suspense and hailed from London. He invented the "MacGuffin" plot element that drives thrillers to be extra suspenseful. He contributed vastly in the film industry with his innovative cinematic concepts and with his staple movies. We will always celebrate his life through watching movies like "The Birds", "Vertigo", "Psycho", "The Man who Knew too much", "Notorious" and "Strangers on a Train" among others. Mr. Hitchcock is our Horror Giant of 2013.
