Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Psycho IV: The Beginning. Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) calls into a talk radio show about serial killers and tells the host Fran Ambrose (CCH Pounder) all about his twisted childhood.
Made for Showtime and directed by horror maven Mick Garris (Critters 2), this is the only Psycho sequel written by Joseph Stefano, the screenwriter of the original. The modern day wraparound plot is a bit weak, but it's nice to see Anthony Perkins playing Norman one last time. Olivia Hussey is especially creepy playing Norman's incestuous abusive mother.
