As much as I admired the directorial stamp of the late Richard Franklin, Psycho II (’83) was not a good film. The main problem, or so I recall, was Tom Holland‘s script. Alfred Hitchcock‘s original Psycho (’60) was based, of course, on a 1959 novel of the same name by Robert Bloch.
It was suggested yesterday that Bloch’s novel, which Universal suits hated, might have been worth shooting back in the day. I read the Wiki synopsis last night. It struck me as a slasher flick told by an idiot. Please read it and share whatever reactions come to mind.
