its an original sequelBy DorkKnight (58 reviews) from London , 24 Jun 2010following on from the taut thriller, it is the best way to experince the mystery in some ways as like many i knew the ending of Psycho way before seeing the film.
while not a great movie and sceams 80's b feature.
it is an interesting conceit and plays the plagued Norman in a more symapthetic light then the original in some ways.
Psycho 2By SilvaSurfa (17 reviews) from London , 10 Aug 2009I never did understand why it took so long to make a sequel of the 1960s Hitchcock classic. This isn't a spark on the original, but that would be an unfair comparision, but two sequels were to follow and this is the best amongst them. It is worth watching just for Perkins' role as the original serial slasher, with good support from NYPD Blues Dennis Franz and Meg Tilly (what happenned to her?) plus Vera Miles also renewing her role from the original.
Worth the effortBy Pugeater (182 reviews) from Leicester , 07 Jul 2008Rented for nostalgia as remembered watching at the cinema on its release. Above average story for a sequel to one of the most famous films. Wouldn't buy it though.
Well made sequelBy a customer from Lancashire , 13 May 2007I had forgotten how much I used to enjoy this film. Although it is not a patch on the original it is a great sequel that does not go for the easy options. True, it is a bit of a cash in and does replicate some of the famous scenes and shots of the original, and it also has the feel of a generic slasher from the early 80s (because it is) but the slow pace, limited dead count and eerie atmosphere is fantastic. Ignore the Terminator style rubber hands and heads and enjoy brilliant 80s horror at its finest.
not badBy a customer from England , 19 Sep 2006not too bad worth a watch, is a bit slow in parts
