The series comprises of fountain pens and roller ball with 3000 pieces of each. The pens have 925 sterling silver rings engraved with many a hatch marks representative of the year of release of the movies and their characteristics. Even the body finish, black lacquer creates a special pattern suggestive of the most rejoiced scenes from the two films.

The blood laden murder scene from Psycho leaves a deep and intense impact on the viewer and the pen uses red enamel to replicate the same effect.
