British-born Master of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock had a way with words, a dark way with words. Here are a selection of his more macabre quotable Alfred Hitchcock quotes …


“I’m a typed director. If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.”


“There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.”


“I have a perfect cure for a sore throat: cut it.”

“Always make the audience suffer as much as possible.”


“T.V. has brought murder back into the home where it belongs.”


“Fear isn’t so difficult to understand. After all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It’s just a different wolf. This fright complex is rooted in every individual.”


“There is nothing so good as a burial at sea. It is simple, tidy, and not very incriminating.”


“Give them pleasure. The same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare.”


“Blondes make the best victims. They’re like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.”


“A glimpse into the world proves that horror is nothing other than reality.”
