Product Description

Product Description

A collection of all four 'Psycho' films. In Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho' (1960), Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) goes on the run after stealing $40,000 from one of her employer's clients. Taking a wrong turn in a storm, Marion arrives at the isolated Bates Motel, run by the twitchy Norman (Anthony Perkins), who is constantly at the beck and call of his unseen mother. When Marion takes a shower in her room, a sudden knife attack brings her life to an end. Upon discovering her body Norman covers up the murder, but it is not long before Marion's sister and boyfriend are attempting to track her down. Hitchcock filmed this seminal thriller in a month, with a low budget and a streamlined crew. In Richard Franklin's 'Psycho 2' (1983), ex-motel owner Norman Bates (Perkins reprising the role) has spent most of his adult life in a secure prison, following the murders he committed some 20 years before. Judged sane by a psychiatric report, Norman is released and returns to his gothic family home. However, when he takes in a young, female lodger, the old demons seem about to resurface. 'Psycho 3' (1986) was directed by Perkins. A runaway nun seeks refuge at the Bates Motel, where Norman (Perkins) is still in charge. Unfortunately for her, she has the same initials as Marion Crane, the woman he stabbed to death in the original film, and she triggers off some shower-related memories in him. A fledgling love affair begins between the two, but his demanding 'mother' is not happy with her son's choice of partner and is determined to exert her parental influence. Finally, 'Psycho 4' (1990) sees Joseph Stefano, the screenwriter of the original 'Psycho', return to script this instalment. Perkins again revives Norman Bates, apparently completely reformed and happily married to a psychologist. However, a phone-in show on matricide stirs up all his old problems and he embarks on another stalk and slash crusade.

Psycho - a film that the mere mention of will send shivers down anyone who appreciates the genre and the wonders of Hitchcock. I have grown-up with the film being constantly referenced and it's one of those films where you see spoofs continually for it. I am ashamed to say now that I was one of those people where the film just "passes-by", I hadn't seen the film and hadn't even heard of Psycho II, III or IIII - they are all amazing. This review is just talking about the basic aspects of actual box set, which I thought didn't fail, I must say that Anthony Perkins is a wonderful Norman Baites, and when he's onscreen there's not a moment that disappoints.

Overall, a fantastic film, the type that EVERYONE should have in the collection; Love Horror? Get it! Love Classic Cinema at it's best? Get it! I'm so glad I did!

An great collection that includes all four films from the Psycho franchise. All four films look good and English subtitles available for each, though there are little in the way of extras; this is not really an issue, however.

This is how DVD releases should be. Good quality and accessible to all!

An excellent opportunity to get all four Psycho movies in one box. The first movie of course features the infamous shower scene, the subject of much subsequent parody, although too many focus on the climax of his scene; the lead up, in which the audience can see the killer outside the shower curtain as a silhouette, and the aftermath, with the rotating, drawn out shot of the victim, are both very well done. Some good psychological stuff with Marion Crane's journey prior to her arrival at the Bates Motel as well. Needless to say, the first movie is a masterpiece, but the other three are fair movies in their own right, particularly the second. While they lack some of the insight and directorial skills of the first film, they remain enjoyable, often with moments of black or unintentional humour.

I bought this for the Hitchcock classic which in itself doesn't need reviewing, as for the others, with each film the story of Norman gets weaker ending with Psycho 4 which I believe was a made for TV film. That being said if you are a fan of the series then it's a must have which is full off special features (mostly on the original).
If you are a fan then I fully recommend Bates Motel which is just fantastic.

This set of films is very good and each one follows on well from the previous one. Anthony Perkins is excellent as Norman Bates and it's easy to see how the new Bates Motel series followed his lead in this well known role.
