Making a sequel to Hitchcock's suspense horror masterpiece sounds like a very difficult feat to pull off and yes sequels tends to rehash old concepts and filmmaking techniques which gives people the impression of havin little new to display, but when watching this it is a pretty creepy and unpredictable movie. Lots of twists and turns and they fit into the story well. It is also well shot in colour, and is creepily scored by the marvelous Jerry Goldsmith. The characters are generally very good, the genuinely reformed Norman Bates and the arguably psychotic Lila Loomis are really different from the first film. And I felt sorry for Norman to be subjected to psychological torture (I'm not sure how many people do). The film feels slightly different to the first film, and it's a good thing. Films like Empire Strikes Back certainly benefited from the emotional shift of its predecessor. It also has lots of trademarks of Hitchcock but further enhances Freudian and other psychological themes Hitchcock was getting at. The film is also directed by Richard Franklin who made the underrated chiller Road Games. Apparently the director had contact with Hitchcock himself. And comparing this film with the first, the main weakness of the first is that it had a pretty bland middle section of the victim's sister investigating her disappearance, the Norman Bates and Marion Crane scenes are easily the best in that movie. Compared with Psycho 2, all of its scenes aren't bad at all, they are all interesting to watch and I don't find any scene boring at all.

I highly recommend this film for fans of Hitchcock and suspense movie lovers. Unfortunately the snobbish critics let the film down because as with underrated sequels like Death Wish 2 and Amityville 2, they compared the film too much with its predecessor.

This was truly a great film, a very special sequel indeed.
No sequel will ever beat Hitchcock's shocker but Psycho 2 almost did.
The idea of the film is good, we see Norman bates returning to the Bate's Motel after 22 years but soon after he returns bodies start to pile up again could this mean that the evil is back.
The Film also has one of those endings were you know there is going to be a sequel.
See it, it is really great.

The idea of doing a sequel to Alfred Hitchcock's classic "Pyscho" is not a stupid idea. Doing a shot for shot remake of the original is a stupid idea. But the idea of Norman Bates coming home 22 years later having been declared cured and released from the mental institution where we assume he never even hurt a fly during all that time, is certainly an interesting idea. The only other character it would be interesting to see when they got back out and tried to pick up where they left off from would be Brigid O'Shaughnessy, and that is never go to happen (I have dibs on the first draft).
Anyhow, Norman has been released and is working at a local diner in town, where he makes friends with Mary Samuels (Meg Tilly), a young waitress. But Lila Loomis (Vera Miles), the sister of Marion Crane, who was murdered in the shower long ago, is not happy that Norman is out and about. She predicts nothing good can come of his release and sure enough Norman starts finding notes from his mother at work and sees her sitting in the window of the Bates mansion. Then people around town start dying and everyone is looking at Norman, who insists he is not killing anybody. After all, he is cured.
Director Richard Franklin ("Road Games") and writer Tom Holland ("Class of 1984") seem fully aware of what can happen to those who try to ride the coattails of a classic horror film, because "Psycho II" is a fairly intelligent script. The key is that our sympathies are with Norman Bates. After all, we know from the first film that he really was nuts and that it was "Mother" who did the killing. If she is gone, then he deserves a break and for one of the few times in a splatter flick we are hoping that the original psychotic mass murderer did not do it.

22 years after the murderous and maniacal events at Bates Motel, Norman Bates, freshly released from a mental institution, is back home; and the spectre of ”Mother” is waiting to greet him.

We could say it was a cynical attempt at latching onto the coat tails of the 1980s slasher boom, but in spite of having the unenviable task of being a sequel to a masterpiece, Psycho II is a rather nifty sequel.

Director Richard Franklin is helped by having Anthony Perkins and Vera Miles heading up the cast list, this gives the film instant credibility, and while the mighty spectre of Hitchcock looms large, Franklin doesn’t copy the maestro and brings his own visual smarts to the piece.

Tom Holland’s screenplay doesn’t mimic either, expanding the Bates story with a series of quality twists whilst keeping the mystery element strong and the gripping factor on the high heat. Dean Cundey (cinematography) and Jerry Goldsmith (music) round out the strong points of the film’s tech credits.

Not to be dismissed as a lazy cash in, this is well worth a look. Great ending as well! 7/10
