8-Bit Nintendo Box Art for Alfred Hitchcock Classics

Here's a great series of 8-bit style Nintendo box art featuring three of Alfred Hitchcock's classic movies, Psycho, The Birds, and North By Northwest. These are incredibly fun designs, and I wish these movie games actually existed! I bet they'd be awesome. The illustrations were created by Joe Spiotto for for an upcoming show at Gallery 1988, Suspense & Gallows Humor: A Tribute to the All-Time Greatest. Here's a note from the artist:

Alfred Hitchcock was a true master. His work was so chilling and visually captivating, there are many options for an artist to interpret his work, which is why i'm so excited for this show! Below is my contribution.

Had Hitchcock been just a few years behind I'm almost certain that Nintendo would have jumped on the chance to make video-game adaptations of some of his most iconic films. I'm almost certain that their game boxes would have looked a little something like this:

What other movies would you like to see get a classic Nintendo box art make over?
