London, February 28 8 (ANI): Alfred Hitchcock has revealed in a newly unearthed interview that his iconic horror film 'Psycho' was intended to be a comedy.

Hitchcock told the TV programme Monitor in July 1964 that he had once made a movie, rather tongue-in-cheek, called 'Psycho,' whose content was rather amusing and a big joke.

He said that he was horrified to find that some people took it -seriously as it was intended to make people scream and yell and so forth - but no more than screaming and yelling on a switchback railway, the Mirror reported.

"So you mustn't go too far because you want them to get off the railway giggling with pleasure," he added.

The interview is featured in the audiobook 'Alfred Hitchcock: In His Own Words,' which has been re-released with new passages this week to coincide with release of the biopic 'Hitchcock,' starring Anthony Hopkins. (ANI)
