Now, 22 years later, the Bates Motel is back in business and screams of fear are once again being heard. After two decades, Norman Bates has been released from the asylum where doctors feel sure that the delusional young man, once a brutal psychotic killer, has been “rehabilitated.” Norman returns to his mother’s creaky old mansion, hoping to maintain a normal life…but his hopes are in vain. Soon, familiar voices are calling to him again and no one is safe this time.
This was a great sequel, though it doesn’t live up to the original, but I think that is impossible to do, it’s still a great sequel. Norman is back and is trying to get on with his life as a sane man now, but residents in his town just wont accept him. Then murders start to happen, but Norman doesn’t remember any of it. He says that he used to black out when he killed people, has mother returned and is making him kill again? Or is someone playing a deadly trick on him in hopes to bring him back to insanity? This slasher film is a true classic like the original, and it has one surprise ending you don’t want to miss. I give it 8 out of 10 stars.
