Horror Icon and Master of Suspense: Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock – By Baron Craze

I suppose it is no surprise that I include Alfred Hitchcock as a Horror Icon and will try and limit myself in writing volumes on his masterful artistic career. The first thing most will retort with is – wait, he didn’t do a lot of horror movies, and you are semi-right, it’s in fine details…
