"Just, don't let them take me back to the institution."

It's one thing to create a sequel to an unremarkable blockbuster like The Fast and the Furious, but it's something else entirely to attempt a follow-up to one of the most legendary, acclaimed movies of all time. For all intents and purposes, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho didn't need a sequel; it's in the same league as films like L... read more

Irrelevant sequel...

Psycho II is a fairly good sequel to the classic thriller Psycho. It is a sequel that is basically the first film all over again because Norman plays the innocent and "mother" kills. The only difference is that we know that Norman is the killer whereas we didn't in the first film. Psycho II is the sequel of a classic that not many people seem to fully appreciate. No, it isn't good and it isn't bad... read more

Initial Thought: I really enjoyed the first of this series. I didn't care for the remake though. I thought it was very distasteful and ruined the chilling atmosphere of the original. So I didn't really want to watch these due to that. Now I figured I would go ahead and see them. I'm sure they will be much more enjoyable than the remake of course.

Characters/Acting: Anthony Perkins returns as the iconic serial killer. It's always good when an actor can return for the sequels instead of getting replaced by someone who doesn't have the same charisma. Vera Miles also returns for this sequel. Virginia Gregg contributes her voice as Norma Bates again as well. I thought it was interesting how Norman Bates is the killer yet he is kind of pushed back into his old ways by people who just ” read more

“"Just, don't let them take me back to the institution."

It's one thing to create a sequel to an unremarkable blockbuster like The Fast and the Furious, but it's something else entirely to attempt a follow-up to one of the most legendary, acclaimed movies of all time. For all intents and purposes, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho didn't need a sequel; it's in the same league as films like Lawrence of Arabia, hence a follow-up sounds like madness, especially one released 23 years after the 1960 original. Robert Bloch, who wrote the Psycho novel on which Hitchcock's film is based, actually penned his own sequel novel in 1982, prompting Universal to pursue their own follow-up. Psycho II was apparently planned to be a television movie with Christopher Walken as Norman Bates, but Anthony Perk” read more

October 2012 Horrorfest (34 movies items)

"First viewing - Oct. 31st - DVD from phillydude's collection First off, Psycho never needed a sequel. It's a perfect film as it is & at the end of it there's nothing else left to explore. That said, this sequel is pretty good provided you can get over how unnecessary it is. The cast does an excellent job, the suspense is handled well, the story is decent, and the soundtrack is pretty good. On the downside, most of the effects aren't very well done & look cheesy as a result. Also the film freque"

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E8 - August 2012 (33 movies items)

" Ah, the classic Bates Motel. I'm pretty sure that I watched this many years ago on cable tv. As a horror film sequel this does manage to stand apart from the rest and added several twists and layers to the story. The 80's were littered with so many bad horror film sequels that I'm typically avoid them. However, this film isn't your typical, low budget slasher in the woods, kind of film."
