A person would have to be as crazy as Norman Bates to even think about helming a sequel to Psycho, but the shocking truth is that this intelligent follow-up in no way soils the memory of its classic predecessor.
You can chide Psycho II for its hubris, and the fact that it won't ever get within shouting distance of a classic. But for a quiet summer escape with an old motel owner we used to know... yeah, it could be a lot worse.
