"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

Total Film's 50 Sequels That Were Radically Differ (50 movies items)

"The Original: Black-and-white classic from Alfred Hitchcock. The proprietor of the Bates Motel, Norman (Anthony Perkins), turns out to be a crazy loon who kills people while dressed as his dead mother. The Radically Different Sequel: Much-belated (Technicolor) follow-up. Norman has spent years in a mental institution. When he's released, it's considered a good idea to let him return to the house that turned him crazy in the first place… Biggest Change: This time, Norman is the trouble hero o"

"1.5. Sequel that's not that bad. Has plot twists to last minutes. Still, kinda lame filmmaking. Visually boring, no tension nor scary moments. "

the giraffe's Movie Exchange Program in review (35 movies items)

"First viewing - Oct. 31st jaytoast's thoughts Xanadon't's thoughts 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"

Portlander's 31 Days Of Horror (31 movies items)

" Day 24: Favorite horror movie sequel Psycho II While I did like Jaws II, another horror movie that I am one of the few fans of, I am picking Psycho II because it dared to make a sequel to the greatest horror movie of all time and turned out to be a surpisingly well written, thought out and well acted film."

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

"Though far from a worthy successor to the original (but why make impossible demands?) the film clearly could have been much worse. - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader It is a craftsman-like piece of filmmaking with a suitably flaky performance by Perkins, but it isn't really a sequel to Psycho. It continues the story, but not the spell. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times"
