Norman may be still at it, but is it entertaining? We’re checking out the new to Blu-ray release "Psycho III – Collector’s Edition" out now from Shout Factory’s horror label Scream Factory. We review the movie, kills and cleanliness of the motel below!
Grade: 3 1/2
Cast: Anthony Perkins, Diana Scarwid, Jeff Fahey
Director: Anthony Perkins
Runtime: 93 minutes
Release Company: Shout! Factory Home Entertainment
The Flick: What feels like uneven direction by Anthony Perkins himself is fortunately saved by amazing co-stars that steal the show. Meaning all the slasher kills and cheap thrills are given a boost by the likes of Diana Scarwid as a nun with little faith and Jeff Fahey as a sleazy stranger. The rest is just Perkins going through the Norman motions – but then again some Norman is better than none at all.
Best Feature: Love the 'Interview' with Jeff Fahey who talks about everything from Perkins to shooting that lamp sex scene.
Best Hidden Gem: Hearing salacious stories from Brinke Stevens on coming in as Diana’s body double is fascinating indeed. (Did anyone actually like Perkins as a director?!)
Worth the Moola: For some cheap thrills and kills with a pinch of character class, this psycho still has some madness within.
