Anthony Perkins returns to the role of Norman Bates and makes his directorial debut in this second sequel to the Alfred Hitchcock classic Psycho.
The Bates Motel is once again the site of something evil as the rehabilitated Norman attempts to help a disturbed young woman, Maureen Coyle (Diana Scarwid – Mommie Dearest), who has left the convent because she can’t find any proof that God exists. Maureen bears a striking resemblance to one-time Bates Motel guest Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) which puts Norman on edge. At the same time, a nosy reporter is snooping around town looking into Norman’s past. Suspense, terror and black comedy worthy of the master himself are in hearty supply in the most shocking Psycho of them all!
Why We Love It
"The scenes that take place outside look great and show excellent color reproduction while skin tones always look nice and natural, never too orange or too pink. Black levels are good and once again anytime we go into the Bates' house we notice a lot of quirky detail and texture in the various rooms, particularly when the camera closes in on some of Norman's taxidermy projects. There are no obvious edge enhancement problems or noise reduction issues here and all in all, Shout! Factory deliver a fine transfer." – Ian Jane, DVD Talk
"Psycho III: Collector’s Edition gives Anthony Perkins a chance to tell Norman Bates’ story from his perspective…The special edition bonus features allow you to appreciate what Perkins put into the movie to make Norman’s story come full circle." – Joe Corey, Inside Pulse
