Art and ExperienceAlfred Hitchcock and Brian De Palma are two iconic directors that have made incredible films that are cemented in cinema history. It’s no secret that the “Carrie” helmer is a big fan of Hitchcock and over the years has used his work as source of inspiration.

In a new video essay by director and writer Peet Gelderblom, titled “Hitchcock & De Palma: Split Screen Bloodbath,” the filmmaker shows a side-by-side of Hitchcock’s “Psycho” compared to scenes from De Palma’s filmography. As we take a closer look, it’s easy to see that De Palma’s work is not an exact imitation, rather an homage to Hitchcock, re-envisioned in his own special way.

Among De Palma’s features that are used in the comparison are “Passion,” “Femme Fatale,” “Carrie,” “Phantom of the Paradise,” “Mission: Impossible” and “Dressed to Kill,” among others.

Gelderblom is known for his re-cut of De Palma’s 1991 film “Raising Cain,” which he restored and later released on Blu-Ray by Shout! Factory this year.
