save the Psycho House!

the “Psycho House”, as its known, is one of the most famous cinematic settings of the 20th Century. since its construction on the Universal Studios backlot in 1959, it has appeared in numerous television commercials, films, cartoons, and music videos. it is most well-known, however, for its appearance in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960). in fact, the creepy-looking abode is almost as central of a character in the film as its deranged tenant, Norman Bates.

over the years, the house has undergone several renovations but in the past decade it has shown signs of wear and tear, as evidenced by missing planks of wood and damaged sections of the roof. a petition has been created on Change.org to encourage Universal Studios to undertake a complete restoration of the house so future generations can enjoy this Hollywood landmark. the petition can be found here.
