Alfred Hitchcock Directing TV Shows From Beyond The Grave?

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Alfred Hitchcock died 25 years ago but it’s not stopping him from directing TV shows from beyond the grave.

At least that’s how Chris Fleming, who co-hosts the A&E supernatural series Dead Famous, sees it.

Fleming and co-host Gail Porter recently spent time in the San Francisco area investigating spots used in Hitchcock movies like The Birds and Vertigo and believes the dead director choreographed some spooky experiences for the show.

For instance, Fleming held a seance in a haunted house that Hitchcock was fond of and ended up opening a Pandora’s Box of spirits who latched onto him and almost made him psycho.

The duo also got a shock when Porter went into a small tunnel underneath a hotel used in Vertigo and they ended up fearing for her life.

Fleming and Porter have since recovered from their terrifying experiences and Fleming says the emotional roller coaster was so similar to scenes in the director’s films that he suspects Hitchcock choreographed the whole thing.

The Hitchcock-themed episode of Dead Famous airs Nov. 1.
