The film starts two decades after Norman Bates was first arrested for murder. He is now sane and ready for normal life. Normal life is not ready for him! Lila Crane-Loomis doesn't want to see Norman released and she would do anything to make sure that he's not-- and she does. (Possible Spoilers) Norman gets a job at a diner as a part of a rehabilitation program, there he meets Mary Samuels, a girl with "boyfriend troubles" Norman notices that she no longer has a place to stay because her boyfriend kicked her out of his house. Norman offers Mary to stay at his motel F.O.C. of course, so she does and soon "mother" is talking to the so-called stable Norman. Mary Samuels turns out to be Mary Loomis the daughter of Lila and Sam (from the original Psycho). Despite all of the killings that take place Norman is always vindicated by the town sheriff. In the middle of the story we learn that Mary and Lila are trying to make Norman go crazy again calling the house as his mother, leaving him notes, and yes-- even killing people. Also, in the end we learn that Norman's mother is NOT dead, Mrs. Bates just took care of him-- Mrs. Spool-- the lady from the diner is in fact Norman's real mother. Well-- like a loving son, Norman poisons her tea and kills her, and like his stuffed birds, stuffs mother and starts doing just what he did before. Believe it or not, this film has some dramatic moments and you actually feel sorry for Norman in most of the film (watch for the "Toasted Cheese Sandwiches" scene) don't get me wrong the film has suspensful moments and is much more intense than the original. Anthony Perkins does such a good job in this, as in the first one and the two next sequels. Psycho II gets a WELL deserved 10/10.
Mama we're all crazy now.
With the gory slasher craze in full swing, it's not all that surprising that the early 1980s saw the return of Norman Bates, the granddaddy of all knife wielding psychos; what is surprising is how good this belated sequel turns out to be.Rather than simply mimicking the dumb 'teenagers in peril' format so popular at the time, Psycho II actually proves to be an intelligent sequel worthy of the original, benefiting from a smart script by Tom 'Fright Night' Holland that introduces clever twists and turns aplenty, excellent direction from Richard Franklin, who respectfully pays homage to Hitchcock's genius while adding in some nifty tricks of his own, and terrific performances, with cutie Meg Tilly impressing as 'girl in peril' Mary, and Perkins putting in a wonderfully twitchy central turn as neurotic nut-job Norm.It was always going to be a very tall order for the film to measure up to the original classic, but this is an extremely good effort, providing atmosphere, thrills, a couple of inventive kills, some dark humour, and one hell of a memorable ending. Hitchcock would have been proud. Oh, and for those wondering if lovely Meg Tilly strips off for a shower scene . yes, she does (a body double providing the T&A), but unlike Janet Leigh, she makes it out of the bathroom alive.
