Storyline

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 alfiehitchie

Goofs

When Norman and Toomey have their face-off in the diner, there is a kid playing a video game in the corner. We hear the sound effects, which are clearly from the game "Pac Man", but when we see the video game it's a cabinet for "Ms. Pac Man", which had completely different sound effects from the original.

Underrated
26 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

What a pleasure it is to see good old Norman in this rather decent sequel to the acclaimed the movie 'Psycho' - Anthony Perkins' role in this film is one fantastic, also an interesting and unpredictable plot buffers up the quality of this film, a great film, and a hidden gem....RECOMMENDED
