Fern Siegel

A psychologically unnerving tale, one of Alfred Hitchcock’s most celebrated films, returns this week — the 1954 classic Rear Window on Amazon Prime Video.

Acting legend Jimmy Stewart is sidelined with a broken leg. So he spends his time staring out his Greenwich Village window into his neighbors’ apartments. But when he spies a possible murder, will anyone believe him?

Another psychological thriller comes to Netflix from South Korea this week: The 8th Night.” It tells the story of a monk, prayer beads in one hand and an ax in the other, who hunts down an evil spirit.
