It is a craftsman-like piece of filmmaking with a suitably flaky performance by Perkins, but it isn't really a sequel to Psycho. It continues the story, but not the spell.

Though far from a worthy successor to the original (but why make impossible demands?) the film clearly could have been much worse.

There are one or two effective surprises, but this still feels like the kind of sequel which should have been left alone.

Franklin's consummate handling of suspense, black humour and several paradigm-shifting twists mak[e] this a worthy sequel to the original, and a convincing evocation of the old master's ghost.

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.

[It's] a sequel that supports its predecessor instead of diminishes.

Director Richard Franklin deftly keeps the suspense and tension on high while dolling out dozens of shock-of-recognitions shots drawn from the audience's familiarity with Psycho.

Scary and fun, it's as worthy a sequel as one might reasonably expect.
