Psycho 3 (III) Review


Norman Bates is back again running his "quiet" little motel a month after the events in Psycho II. Norman meets three new people...

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.
