Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman join writer-director-co-star comedy genius Mel Brooks in this hilarious homage to Hitchcock. After a Harvard psychiatrist (Brooks) takes over the Psycho-Neurotic Institute for the Very, Very Nervous, he realizes his predecessor died under suspicious circumstances. And when he winds up accused of the crime, he gets a serious case of High Anxiety.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this spoof on Hitchcock movies contains some adult themes, such as mental illness, bondage, and some violence (a fall from a great height and a gunshot wound). But since it's a spoof, the real Hitchcockian suspense and tension is replaced with silliness.
