Two members of the public re-enact the famous shower scene from Hitchcock’s Psycho. The re-enactment takes place in a hotel room, but before they get into the shower they play a short homage to Kubrick’s The Shining in one of the hotel’s hallways.
The scene: After calculating how she can repay the money she has spent, Marion flushes her notes down the toilet and begins to shower. Suddenly, an anonymous figure enters the bathroom and stabs Marion to death.
In Dry Psycho the public members keep their clothes on, there is no water, no blood, no shower curtain, just good old-fashioned acting.
