Anatomy of a Psycho (1961)


Anatomy of a Psycho is a 1961 film directed by Boris Petroff. The movie is about a teenager named Chet who descends into mental problems after his brother is sentenced to death. I watched it for the first time last night and it is not a bad little movie. What makes it noteworthy in terms of film history (and trivia) is its connection to auteur Ed Wood AND his masterpiece Plan 9 from Outer Space. Ed Wood contributed to the screenplay under the name Larry Lee and the film used music originally used for Plan 9 from Outer Space.
