  • FANGO Flashback: “PSYCHO III”

    ,

    Much like snowflakes and fingerprints, you’ll never find two horror fans with the same opinions about the PSYCHO sequels. Perhaps among the most divisive franchises in horror history, it’s difficult to find a critical consensus on the later tales of Norman Bates, whether it be Richard Franklin’s PSYCHO II, Mick Garris’ PSYCHO IV, the variations of BATES MOTEL or Anthony Perkins’ PSYCHO III. And while this writer has never been a fan of PSYCHO III, especially considering my love for PSYCHO and PSYCHO II, the time felt right to give PSYCHO III another shot, hoping to eschew the PSYCHO legacy and take it as a slasher in its own right.

Meanwhile, horror TV is at an all-time high, dominated by THE WALKING DEAD and AMERICAN HORROR STORY while still offering prestigious entertainment like PENNY DREADFUL and HANNIBAL. And horror video games are on the upswing, with UNTIL DAWN and THE EVIL WITHIN filling in the hole left by the dissolution of SILENT HILLS.
