YMMV: Family Plot
  • Adaptation Displacement: The film is loosely based on The Rainbird Pattern (1972), a thriller novel by Victor Canning. Due to its connection with Hitchckock, it is now better remembered than the novel.
  • Special Effect Failure: The bluescreen work in the driving scenes is exceptionally poor, even for the time. You can often see streetlights through the actors.
  • They Just Didn't Care: The Blu-Ray has an uglier transfer than other Hitchcock movies do. When restoration expert Robert A. Harris reviewed it, he gave the picture quality a 0 out of 5, then bumped it up to 0.75 after realizing overly grainy and fuzzy picture still bests a blank screen.
