    Anthony Perkins stars in and directs the most shocking Psycho film of all: Psycho III. After years in prison, Norman Bates returns home to the Bates Motel. When a pretty young woman (Diana Scarwid) runs to the motel - and Norman's open arms - to escape a scandalous secret, he finally gets a chance at a new life. But he has one murderous skeleton in his closet that will do anything not to share him. It's a new day at the Bates Motel, but the nightmares are just beginning…

    Another wonderful sequel, its hard to keep a series like this good this long, I felt all the sequels to this point have been well worth watching.

    Went from Norman killing as Mother and thinking it WAS Mother, trying to hide her murders, to this movie with Norman just doing the killing not even dressed up.
    Deborah McGiffin
    The duality of the Norman Bates character that Hitchcock presented so well in the original is clearly what gives the sequels so much to work with.

    Picking up where Psycho 2 left off, Norman Bates is a free man living in his old home behind the Bates Motel, his new stuffed mother his only roommate. He lives a quiet life managing the less than successful business, spending most of his time practicing taxidermy on the local birds that eat from his poisoned feeder. But things get all shook up again when Maureen Coyle, a young, runaway nun, enters his world. Maureen's short, blonde hair reminds Norman far too much of his most unforgettable victim, Marion Crane, causing a myriad of conflicting feelings to well up within him. But Norman is not the only one who is disturbed and confused. Maureen has left the Church because she has so lost her faith that she recently attempted suicide and caused the death of a fellow nun who attempted to stop her. With her feelings of hopelessness and guilt, Maureen still hasn't given up on the idea of taking her own life. And Maureen is not Norman's only problem. Duane Duke, a pretty boy, would-be singing star with a dark side on his way to L.A., has come by the Bates Motel looking for a job. Norman immediately makes him Assistant Manager in charge of the day shift. But while Norman should be keeping a close eye on Duane's improper interests and activities, it's Duane who's keeping a sharp eye on him. And Duane isn't the only one. A nosy reporter has turned up in town and is asking questions about Norman, who wants nothing but to be left alone to TRY to have a normal life. Things aren't looking good for Norman at all. It's hard enough for him to battle off his mother's urges while he attempts to start a relationship with Maureen, without having to deal with all the watching eyes springing up around him.Read more ›

    I just thought I would shed some light on the quality of the DVD disc technically speaking. Out of the entire presentation I was extremely surprised by the quality of the audio. The Dolby Surround track is well used, mostly by Carter Burwells unique score. All the speakers are used occasionally adding to the dark mood that some of the scenes convey. The sound is always clear and noise free. The dialogue driven scenes stay close to the center channel and move only from time to time. The video print seems to have aged well and doesn't show any large amount of dust or scratches. Colors are saturated very naturally and there doesn't appear to be any distracting pixelation. Some of the titles do appear to slightly shimmer, but it looks as if it was just the old fashioned techique used to make them. The letterboxed picture feels wider than the 1.85 ratio stated on the case, but only slightly. Overall a very nice DVD by itself. The added theatrical trailer does feel dated, both in quality and design, but it is added treat for a value priced disc. A good buy for a decent price if you're a fan of the series.

    It's about time Universal got around to releasing a decent disc of Psycho 3. The film, directed by star Anthony Perkins and released theatrically in 1986, has widely been regarded as a marked decline in quality for the Psycho series. And I admit, I once regarded it the same way. Unlike the relatively tame Psycho 2, the third film in the series ups the sex & violence level considerably. This was probably a conscious attempt to compete with films of its time...remember, "splatter" films were big in the mid-80's.

    But, like Hithcock's original masterpiece, there's more going on here than meets the eye. Perkins the Director appears to have studied not only Hitchcock (the opening scene is straight out of VERTIGO), but other contemporary filmmakers like John Carpenter and Dario Argento. Psycho 3 is almost equal parts fright film and black comedy...a combination that certainly describes many of Hitchcock's most successful films.

    Though hardly a perfect film, Psycho 3 is a worthy successor to its predecessors and a delighfuly twisted horror film in its own right. Give it another look, and I hope you'll agree.

    3.5 stars - Reasonably well done second sequel to Hitchcock's masterpiece marks Anthony Perkins' directorial debut. This one plays it tongue in cheek at times- Eg: The sherrif on the lookout for a missing girl helps himself to some ice cubes from Normans motel freezer neglecting to notice that they are bloodied - the girls corpse lies underneath!!. Film is as competent as Psycho's 2 and 4 - just a differing style. Much better than the Psycho remake (1998). If Psycho's 1-4 aren't enough for you, check out Robert Blochs interesting novel 'Psycho House' which was never filmed and is available in paperback from Amazon.

    Recently, I saw this movie for the very first time and enjoyed it tremendously. It is dramatic, over-the-top, suspenseful and perhaps even comical in certain parts. Anthony Perkins (may he rest in peace) plays the classic role that he made famous more than 25 years prior as Norman Bates. Mr. Perkins gives a first-rate performance as everyone's favorite kook because he is believable and there is almost a sad quality to this pathetic creature, Norman Bates. Rounding out the cast is Jeff Fahey portraying Norman's skirt-hungry motel manager and b-movie queen Diana Scarwid, playing the harried excommunicated nun who finds solace in a welcoming Norman. What I enjoyed most about this movie is that we really got to know the characters. It wasn't a bloody horror picture, instead "Psycho 3" is a finely crafted work of cinema.
