Psycho II


1h 53m 1983

Brief Synopsis

After 22 years in an asylum, Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins, reprising his most famous role) is released and allowed to return home over the objections of Lila Loomis (Vera Miles), sister of one of his victims in PSYCHO. Although Norman is somewhat apprehensive about returning to the old house and motel where he committed his murders, he seems to be completely recovered. He is given work at a local diner, where he meets Mary (Meg Tilly), a cute but spacy waitress who seems completely ignorant of the earlier horrors. As Norman gets close to Mary, strange things begin to occur. He finds notes signed by Mother, receives phone calls from Mother, even sees Mother standing in her bedroom window. Then the bodies begin to pile up.
