From Homestar Runner Wiki
Homestar Hitchcock Presents
Some elements of the Homestar Runner body of work draw inspiration from movies and television programs directed by Alfred Hitchcock, especially the hit Psycho.
- An old loading screen that featured the outline of Homestar Runner's profile was modeled after Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
- Experimental Film — The swinging lightbulb and the oscillating shadows it creates are from the famous penultimate scene in Psycho, and Strong Sad falling into a descending spiral of presidential faces references Vertigo.
- That a Ghost — The Old Pietimer Place looks inspired by the Bates mansion from Psycho.
- Email retirement — Marshie telling his mother to walk away references Psycho, and the painting of her resembles the caricature seen in the opening for Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
- Jibblies 2 — Coach Z's line about a shower being the safest place for a "pretty young thing" references such movies as Psycho that feature a woman getting killed while taking a shower.
- 8-Bit is Enough — Strong Bad recalls that he and Strong Sad used to play, "Who's hiding behind the shower curtain with a knife" (another Psycho reference) in their bathroom.
