Norman Bates is back behind the desk at the Bates Motel.

Psycho II (1983) was the first of several sequels of the infamous Psycho. For reasons unknown mad Norman Bates is finally let out of the funny farm despite the objections of many people in the community and seeks out his old job (proprietor of the Bates Motel) and goes back to the family homestead. Whilst he get's the motel manager's position he decides to resides in the family pad, something from his past comes back to haunt him. He also meets a strange young & pretty lady (Meg Tily). Her presence lights something deep inside his psyche and It doesn't take him long to get his groove back.

An okay sequel to the first film. A lot better and well made than I expected it to be. Funny thing about the sequels. They're quite interesting and well made. They could have easily given up and made them as sleazy and schlocky as most of the crap that was produced during this time period. But thanks to the steady guidance of Anthony Perkins they never do get out of hand. I recommend this one and the rest of the series (sans the dreadful Bates Motel). Just don't expect too much from them or you might be disappointed.
