Customer Reviews of Psycho II/Psycho III/Psycho IV-Beginning
Surprisingly Not Bad6/14/2011
Usually sequels to very popular movies come up way too short. The sequels to psycho aren't bad. The second movie sees Norman released back into society, while Lila Loomis and her daughter try to drive Norman back into the institution. Psycho 3 sees the continuing story of Norman as he runs the motel and meets a former nun who looks very similar to Janet Leigh's character in the first psycho. The fourth movie sees Norman calling into a talk radio show saying he has to kill again. Psycho 2 is on a disc by itself while Psycho 3 and 4 are on one single sided disc.
