Conclusion: 'Psycho III' returns Norman Bates to his homicidal roots and gives plenty of nods to Hitchcock's original, but this third installment of the venerable franchise, despite another interesting plot, shucks the elegant tone that distinguishes its sister films in favor of a more gratuitous approach, and the result is a disjointed effort that more closely resembles 'Halloween' and 'Friday the 13th' than the spine-tingling Hitchcock classic.
Conclusion: Scream Factory has done a bang up job with their Psycho releases that highlight their “Fall of Fear” series going on. The films both look great and have picture qualities in sync with each other. Psycho III ’s release features 4 interviews made exclusively for this Blu-ray, making this Blu-ray more than worth your while. If you’re a fan of this series, you’re going to be really happy with this release.
Conclusion: There's always been a law of diminishing returns with regard to repeated sequels of any property, and that somehow seems to only be magnified when the first film is of such legendary status as Psycho is. But Psycho III is much better than it really has any right to be, and that's due to some subversive comedy which keeps the proceedings both horrifying and funny simultaneously—something that harkens back to Hitchcock more authentically than any recreation of a set piece.
