I am notoriously not a fan of being scared. Haunted houses leave me in tears. Horror movies give me nightmares. Suspense movies, though, I can handle. And one of the most haunting examples of suspenseful cinema is Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo," kicking off Hitchcock month at the Gateway Film Center. Their weekly Nightmares on High St. series screens genre picks every Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday. First up is the Jimmy Stewart-Kim Novak psychological thriller, followed by "North By Northwest" and "Notorious." The series ends on a high note with a 50th-anniversary presentation of "Psycho" for Halloween weekend.
