A wealthy San Francisco socialite pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town that slowly takes a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people there in increasing numbers and with increasing viciousness.
A mentally disturbed man, who roomed with the late Norman Bates at the state lunatic asylum, inherits the legendary Bates Motel after the death of Norman and tries to fix it up to make it a respectable business.
Now declared legally sane, Norman Bates is released from a mental institution after spending 22 years in confinement over the protests of Marion Crane's sister Lila Loomis, who insists that he's still a killer and that the court's indifference to his victims by releasing him is a gross miscarriage of justice. Norman returns to his motel and the old Victorian mansion where his troubles started, and history predictably begins to repeat itself. Written by

This is the most frightening movie I've ever seen. I was expecting it to be kind of funny in a bad horror movie way but it plays with your mind to such a masterful extent that every time I've seen it I've been shaky afterwards. Anthony Perkins does such a good job of playing the rehabilitated Norman Bates who for 2 hours you have to decide if what's going on is in his head or really going on. That puzzlement stays suspenseful for the entire film until the very involved ending. This is really a top notch psychological suspense/horror movie which is very underrated.
