Paying tribute to master of cinematic thriller Alfred Hitchcock required the Dana Hotel to reference at least two films in its Halloween decor. Obviously, the hotel could be transformed to the Bates Motel of Psycho fame, but partiers also got a theatrical reference to Rear Window with a staged murderous attack made visible from the Vertigo Sky Lounge during the proceedings. Exactly how they convinced the birds to swarm around the building, we're not entirely sure.
