Artist Christian Marclay is no stranger to mixing the worlds of film and fine art for his video installations, which usually involve impeccable timing and abstract mixing of sound and dialogue. His 1995 video, 'Telephones,' featured a montage of film scenes in which actors answer the telephone. His 2010 single-channel video, 'The Clock,' samples thousands of film clips that demonstrate the passage of time, featuring snippets of clocks, wristwatches, alarms, etc. An Ultra Culture writer created a similar video -- made in art school before Marclay's time piece, the writer jokes -- and it shows 36 Hitchcock movie deaths happening at once.
Hitchcock's talents for suspenseful timing, expert editing and crafting the perfect kill scene are highlighted in this video, which builds into one giant death orgasm. His earliest films like 'Blackmail' and 'Murder!' are represented here, leading all the way up to 1976 and 'Family Plot,' about a con artist couple and a few kidnappers.
A frenzy of death and mayhem awaits you in the video below.
