Favorite Norman Bates quote - "You're sicker than I ever was!"

You know, you'd honestly think that after waiting 22 long years to make a sequel to the original Psycho (1960), this film's producers (who had a sizable budget) would've seriously made an effort to put together a horror picture that was at least on par and somewhat respectful of its predecessor. But, no, this didn't seem to be the case here with Psycho 2.

This utterly dismal excuse for yet another inferior slasher film was made strictly to cash in on Hitchcock's unrivalled original. And, if you ask me - With Psycho 2 being a total cash-grab, this made it the worst and most damning reason for releasing such a sequel of this one's below-average calibre.

As expected - Not only was Psycho 2's wafer-thin storyline predictable to the extreme (with its repeated focus on big, sharp, shiny knives), but there really wasn't a single character in the story who was worth caring about, either. No. Not even that unlovable, little loony, Norman Bates.

What also lost Psycho 2 some serious points was the completely unwelcome, in-your-face product placement of both Lipton Tea and Pepsi Cola.

All-in-all - This was certainly one movie sequel that was not worth waiting twenty-two years for. No way, Jose.

For a sequel to a really famous movie, it isn't bad.
