PSYCHO III
1986, Universal, 93 min, USA, Dir: Anthony Perkins

Anthony Perkins directs and stars in this final theatrical installment of the PSYCHO saga. As Norman Bates, he’s still dealing with the fallout from the last group of killings in the form of a nosy journalist and a disgruntled motel employee. On the plus side, he’s fallen in love with a suicidal nun (Diana Scarwid) - but Norman’s over-protective mother never did think much of his taste in women.


PSYCHO II
1983, Universal, 113 min, USA, Dir: Richard Franklin

Two decades after the horrific events of the Alfred Hitchcock original, Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) is paroled from a mental institution and returns to the family business, which has been turned into a sleazy adult motel. With a victim’s relative (Vera Miles, reprising her earlier role) vehemently opposed to his release, the pressure hits Norman from all sides, and it’s not long before “Mother” reappears and the bodies start dropping again. With Meg Tilly, Robert Loggia and Dennis Franz.


THE BLACK HOLE
1979, Disney, 98 min, USA, Dir: Gary Nelson

It is the year 2130, and the spaceship Palomino and its crew come across a lost vessel at the edge of an immense black hole. The vessel is manned by robots and one human, Dr. Hans Reinhardt (Maximilian Schell), a prestigious scientist who plans to enter the foreboding void. This terrifically haunting sci-fi gem was nominated for Best Cinematography and Special Effects Oscars in 1980.
