"For decades, aspiring filmmakers had to play detective, poring over
archival footage and interviews to discover clues to Hitchcock's
success. How to Turn Your Boring Movie into a Hitchcock Thriller puts an
end to such sleuthing. Here, Jeffrey channels Hitchcock's voice,
gathering his scattered wisdom and putting it all together in one
package that's as neat and tidy as the perfect crime."
-- Joel Gunz, Founder, Alfred Hitchcock Geek
"Jeffrey has wisely gone straight to The Master, Alfred Hitchcock,
for the many astute principles in this book. A recurring idea is, 'Keep
it simple'. For example, Chapter Six, on editing, advises: if you're
showing an innocent man walking through a spooky house, avoid fancy
angles. Study carefully Bays' explanation. He writes good sense! His
'how to' book will assist any filmmaker, beginner or advanced."
-- Ken Mogg, Author, The Alfred Hitchcock Story
"...an exciting page turner for any filmmaker who wants to channel
their inner Hitchcock. Writing in the style of 'The Master' himself,
Jeffrey takes the reader through the principles of suspense,
storytelling, characterization and much more, with Hitch's dead-pan
humor and lugubrious wit, so that exposition never becomes a dull
moment. Highly recommended."
