We ask UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HOLLYWOOD to undertake a complete restoration of "The Psycho House" and in the process save the greatest surviving movie set in the world, SAVE THE PSYCHO HOUSE!

    1. Petition by

      Save The Psycho House

"THE PSYCHO HOUSE" as it has come to be known was constructed in 1959 on the Universal backlot for ALFRED HITCHCOCK's most famous film and the grandaddy to all modern horror movies, "PSYCHO" (1960). The house was home to "Norman Bates" and his overbearing Mother and stood menacingly on the hill behind the "Bates Motel"

Over the years the house has made hundreds of appearances in Movies, TV Shows, Documentaries, Music Videos and even Cartoons! So much so that the "Californian Gothic" house itself is now as famous the movie it featured in and has become an iconic piece of movie history.

Through the years the house has had several upgrades (It went from being just a two sided facade to three then four and finally it was given a roof to top it off!) and has gone through at least two renovations and twice it moved location completly!

Sadly however, it has been over a decade since the hollywood legend last had a nip n' tuck or a fresh slap of powder and paint and the old girl is starting to look her age... Visitors to the house today will see evidence of warped, rotting timber... Gaping holes in the woodwork with large sections of missing planks of wood... Decorative woodwork damaged and some sections missing completly from around the porch... Shingles rotten, damaged and missing from the roof... All in all it's not a pretty sight and if something is not done soon to help stop the decay, we feel it may pass a critical point of no return!

We urge UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HOLLYWOOD to listen to our pleas to undertake a complete and total restoration of the building and in the process preserve an iconic piece of Hollywood history. 

Save the greatest surviving movie set in the world... SAVE THE PSYCHO HOUSE!

      This set was behind the movie "Psycho" which is still today probably the most scariest and most well known movie ever produced and with remakes being made today, wouldn't it be incredible to make use of this set once again.

      This set is a piece of motion picture history. It is also a part of Universal Studios history. The Psycho House is also a "major draw" for tourists to visit the Studio, an take the tour.
