Psycho 3 (III) Review

Synopsis:

Norman Bates falls in love with a nun - which makes his "mother" jealous - who has visited the Bates Motel alongside a drifter and a curious reporter.

Anthony Perkins is running the Bates Motel again and it becomes quite apparent that his thirst to kill is about to come back. A drifter (Jeff Fahey) and a suicidal former nun (Diana Scarwid) are the newest occupants. Soon a nosy journalist (Roberta Maxwell) starts hanging around as well and the suspense builds to a fevered pitch. Can Perkins keep his mother’s skeleton in the closet one last time? "Psycho III" is by-the-numbers all the way. Those who saw the second installment came back for this blood-bath while traditionalists who refused to view anything but the original turned away once again. Perkins’ direction is suspect and the screenplay is mediocre at best. Ends up being a typical slasher flick with little creativity or innovation.
