5.0 out of 5 stars For all Psycho fans!, 17 Sep 2012
This review is from: Psycho 1 - 4 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
Here we have a nicely packaged collection of the four 'Psycho' movies at an affordable price, therefore enabling you to follow the story of murderer Norman Bates from start to finish - what more could you ask for?

The films:
'Psycho' (1960): The original black and white and undeniably the best, this is by far the greatest film in the collection. With this, Alfred Hitchock made an all-time classic. Who could forget the legendary and much spoofed scene in the shower? If you enjoy suspenseful films, this classic horror is second to none! (includes bonus features) 5/5

'Psycho II' (1983): This is a surprisingly worthy sequel. No movie will ever beat the Hitchock film, but if there ever was a sequel that was in with a chance - this is it. It's another gripping story that me glued to the screen from start to finish. It also has one of those endings where you just know that there is going to be another sequel. 4.5/5

'Psycho III' (1986): I have read many mixed reviews for this one. Personally, I really like it and have watched it many times. This third installment in the series carries on from where the previous left off, is full of black humour and lots of 80's slasher elements are added. A good film worth seeing. 4/5

'Psycho IV: The Beginning' (1990): This made for television movie really doesn't get my vote at all. Some people seem to like it but I found it rather poor. Here we hear Norman Bates calling in on a radio station to contribute to the subject of "Why boys kill their mothers?" He talks about his early experiences and his fractured childhood. We also find out that he has a pregnant wife now and is scared that the baby will grow-up to be like him. I watched it twice and just couldn't get into it. Still, it is good to have on the set for completeness sake. 2/5

Thankfully, this release omits the poor 1998 remake of 'Psycho' (some things just can't be beaten).

The late Anthony Perkins is consistently fantastic as the crazed Norman Bates in all four of these movies. It's a brilliant boxset and a must for all fans of horror films.
