Universal Pictures has given four iconic films an upgrade as The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection is now available to bring home in 4K UHD.

The four films included in this set are Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho, and The BirdsPsycho includes two different versions in the 4K UHD release.  You have the widely seen version but here for the first time on home video is Psycho Uncut.  Hitchcock fans who didn’t see the film during the initial theatrical release can finally watch the Master of Suspense intended.

The films star the likes of James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Tippi Hedren, Kim Novak, and Rod Taylor to name a few.  There are hours upon hours of bonus features included with the films.  You can probably expect to spend at least a full week or more watching not only the films but all the bonus content.  This depends on your own schedule, of course.  This set is a must-own for Hitchcock fans.
