Movie Summary

Director:
Anthony Perkins
Released:
1986
Rating:
R
Anthony Perkins stars in and directs the most shocking Psycho film of all: Psycho III. After years in prison, Norman Bates returns home to the Bates Motel. When a pretty young woman (Diana Scarwid) runs to the motel - and Norman's open arms - to escape a scandalous secret, he finally gets a chance at a new life. But he has one murderous skeleton in his closet that will do anything not to share him. It's a new day at the Bates Motel, but the nightmares are just beginning...

Metacritic Score

  • 75

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    The movie was directed by Perkins, in his filmmaking debut. I was surprised by what a good job he does. Any movie named Psycho III is going to be compared to the Hitchcock original...

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Jay Scott

    Psycho III, directed by Perkins himself, is years behind the Hitchcock original in quality, it's light years ahead of Psycho II. [27 June 1986, p.D1]

    If you have a twisted sense of humor and like cheap thrills, you'll probably love Psycho III. [14 Aug 1986]
