Addendum: To truly scare an audience, Alfred Hitchcock believed that secrecy over a plot should motive the audience in suspense. Psycho had its moments, Janet Leigh’s scream sent chills, I beg to differ

Note: A wife’s tail. When diluting a fruit drink, alway add the main ingredient first. Juice + water, never water + juice
