The region 1 USA DVD has a decent picture quality, 1hr-33mins, no special features. 1986.
The UK DVD from the 1-4 box set has a same quality picture and is the same uncut version, no features either.
Fantastic Carter Burwell score that is so overdue for CD release. Come on Universal. I've had the vinyl for 28 years. Too long.
It's 1.85:1 widescreen and the pretty
good picture fills all of a modern TV screen.
So Norman's creeping about again, twitching
his face & giving us plenty of one sided smiles
as only Perkins can. A big thank you to the
reviewer(s) who've stated this print is uncut &
so is the one in the UK Psycho box set (i think).
1986, wig/check. old biddys frock/check. dirty great knife/double check
Taking place weeks after the conclusion of it's predecessor, Psycho III starts with a terrific scene that sets the tone for the whole movie. As the immortal words "there is no god" are screamed across the soundtrack we see young, disillusioned nun Maureen(Diana Scarwid) attempts to take her own life by hurling herself from the bell tower of her convent. Despite desperate attempts by her mother superior and fellow sisters the hysterical Maureen only edges perilously closer to the gaping window. Tragedy ensues as a well meaning sister reaches out only to slip and fall to her death herself. The troubled Maureen is ostracised from the convent with only the clothes on her back and a small suitcase and makes her way across the arid desert where she finds a lonely highway. She is soon picked up by grungy, drifter musician Duke (Jef Fahey) who is on route to California to make his fame and fortune("Hey!!! Mind the guitar"). After an impenetrable nighttime rain storm Duke decides it would be safer to park up for the night and rest until the weather clears. Not knowing anything about Maureen's background the sleezy Duke makes his move on her which she quite rightly rebuffs prompting the slime ball to throw her from his car into the cold, dark rainy night miles from anywhere. The next day Duke pulls into a deserted motel just off the main highway, a motel with a familar name and an even more familiar manager. Bates Motel and of course Norman.Read more ›
