For SCREAM OF FEAR the producers even went as far as to mimic the success of Psycho's advertising campaign, using the caption "Management and staff of this theatre have been pledged to an oath of secrecy concerning the electrifying climax! For maximum excitement, we earnestly recommend that you see this motion picture from the start!"
