Good sequel with some 80's slasher elements added

PSYCHO III (1986)

directed by: Anthony Perkins

starring: Anthony Perkins, Diana Scarwid, Jeff Fahey, and Roberta Maxwell

plot: One month after the events of PSYCHO II, Norman (Anthony Perkins) is still running the Bates Motel along with "Mother". Things are going fine until Norman falls in love with a fallen nun (Diana Scarwid), takes in a greedy drifter (Jeff Fahey), a nosy reporter (Roberta Maxwell) sticks her nose where it doesn't belong and a series of murders begins once again.

my thoughts: Although not as great a sequel as PSYCHO II, this is still a good sequel. With Anthony Perkins directing himself, you can expect a good addition to the PSYCHO series.

Now, Norman Bates is dealing with a lot. He's falling in love, a reporter is poking around, and a new employee is close to discovering his secret. The mystery and atmosphere of the first two are still here but it's 1986, the middle of the 80's slasher era. More sex and violence have been added.

We have gorier kills and even Juliette Cummins (FRIDAY THE 13TH PART V: A NEW BEGINNING, SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE II) playing a slut who is picked up at a bar by Duke (Jeff Fahey), kicked out of his room, and then murdered in the actually pretty cool payphone scene.

These 80's elements do not add much to the film, but certainly do not take away.

Perkins also does a fine job directing, and adds a lot of dark humor to the film.

Definitely check this sequel out, it's not as good as the first two but certainly better than the fourth installment and the remake.

Good with a moment of genius

Psycho 3 is one of those "it's not as bad as you think" type of movies, again, from what I was expecting, I thought it was going to be trash. But I bought the triple feature DVD pack of the Psycho sequels, I watched Psycho 3 last night, it wasn't that bad. The only complaint I have is that it felt a little too Friday the 13th to me, a little too slasher. From the first Psycho, we had more left to the imagination and a little more thriller/mystery, Psycho 3 doesn't use that same formula, but it still leaves you in chills. It is almost kind of a tribute in some of the shots and lines from the original, I think that is thanks to Anothony Perkins, it was interesting to see him direct the film, not the worst I've seen for a horror sequel, but the story itself is alright.

Norman is back in business, running the Bates Motel, he needs a helping hand, so Duane Duke, musician bum, is his new assistant manager. When a former nun, Maureen, comes to stay in the motel, she reminds Norman of Marian Craine, he falls for her. But it's a question if his mother will let him be with Maureen. Duane is also bringing problems back into Norman's killing spree of bar fly's and a homecoming party.

Psycho 3 is worth the look, believe me, when you've seen so many horror sequels that were just beyond horrible, this was a breathe of fresh air. The story does keep your interest, if you are into blood and gore, you will not be disappointed on that note. But I'm looking at this as to what should be a tribute to the first film, the slitting of the throat to me wasn't Norman Bates. But if you want to see the sequel, I wouldn't hold you back, the sequel is worth the watch if you are curious about the sequels, just this was a little too bloody for my tastes.

4/10

Highly impressive sequel effort

"Psycho III" is a lot better than what one might think.

**SPOILERS**

After deciding to leave the Church after an accident, Maureen Coyle, (Diana Scarwid) winds up at the motel run by Norman Bates, (Anthony Perkins) and his assistant Duke, (Jeff Fahey) and decides to stay for a while. Still battling the demons that caused her to leave the convent, she stirs the emotions in Norman and he constantly feels the urge to kill. Soon, a rash of disappearances plague the visitors of the motel, alerting Sheriff Hunt, (Hugh Gillin) and sleazy reporter Tracy Venable, (Roberta Maxwell) to the issue. Investigating the disappearances, they find a shocking secret about what's the true nature behind the motel.

The Good News: Another entry in the long running series initiated by the classic original, this one isn't all that bad. The fact that it's far more generously shot gives it a far better technical appearance. In one dazzling scene, there's a re-staging of the shower murder mixed with a vision of the Virgin Mary, wherein he enters a shower room just as someone attempts to commit suicide, where the sudden sight of the character in drag holding a knife becomes a vision of the Virgin Mary holding a crucifix. There's also a classic moment where the sheriff opens the ice machine and pulls out a cube to suck on in the blistering heat, whilst Norman Bates watches on in horror as the ice cubes are covered in blood. A really intense moment as well comes from a daring escape from a drowning car and comes across a really unexpected entity. The fact that the slashing came into the film more here is a nice bonus, and we get some really nice deaths. One is beaten with a guitar until it splinters, another gets sliced up with a knife that's framed to imitate the shower scene from the first one, another is decapitated, and there's also a brutal impaling with a knife. There's a few more kills here, making this one fit in pretty well with the more kill-happy crowd. This one wasn't all that bad.

The Bad News: There's really only a couple small comments against this one. For as much of an opportunity as there was to kill, very rarely does it show through. It's not as big of a body count as there really could've had, and it probably could've done a little better had it off a couple more here and there. The other major beef is that the film tries way to hard to mix in several different themes and ideas that some of them get shuffled around and get a little confusing. The religious angle for the events was a big one. It serves it's purpose, but it is melded into the other storyline and it becomes a mess. However, other than those, this wasn't all that bad of a film.

The Final Verdict: The real secret to enjoying these sequels is that they shouldn't be compared to the original. View them separately and objectively and they're actually decent films. If that sounds like a fine viewing agenda, then give this one a shot, otherwise there's no need to view it if you've already determined it won't stack up to the original.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Nudity, Graphic Language, a sex scene and drug use
