Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Premonition

Hitchcock Presents is that perfect thing when I feel like watching some old-fashioned suspense but don’t want to sit still for more than half hour. And I have to admit I am especially fond of black and white movies (or photographs). These short dramas are often full of twists and (good-looking) people gone mad for desires.

Premonition is one of the first episodes I watched and it remained my favorite. Love the haunting and puzzling feel through out the whole show and the final revelation – so natural yet unexpected at a time. Watching it a second time made me marvel even more at the excellent plotting.

The theme “premonition” is a fascinating one. How many times have we had this weird sensation that intrigues us into something unknown, links us to a mysterious territory of ourselves?
