Psycho 4 (IV): The Beginning Review


Norman Bates recalls his days as a young boy living with his schizophrenic mother while fearing his unborn child will inherit his split personality disorder.

A WONDERFUL WAY TO END THIS!!! TERRIFIC SERIES!!!!!! Psycho 2 was an amazing sequel but in my humble opinion this one surpasses it it has a great story to it and i enjoyed the flashbacks to Norman’s younger days some twisted things happened back then. this is stylishly directed with neat blotches of red this is suspenseful with lots of cool moments SPOILERS!!!!!! SPOILERS!! like when this girl just wanted to make love with him she sneaks into his mother’s room and BAM SPOILERS!! she gets stabbed to death. also i liked the whole concept of Norman telling his life story to a radio show i thought it was creative and very interesting plus it had AMAZING performances and likable characters plus the characters were developed very well and it had a tense finale and a cool ending SPOILERS!!!!!!! when Norman gets rid of the past for good and it was cool too see a Younger Norman.
