Psycho II

Synopsis: Now declared legally sane, Norman Bates is released from a mental institution after spending 22 years in confinement over the protests of Marion Crane's sister Lila Loomis, who insists that he's still a killer and that the court's indifference to his victims by releasing him is a gross miscarriage of justice. Norman returns to his motel and the old Victorian mansion where his troubles started, and history predictably begins to repeat itself.

Oh! No!

No, no!

Mother! Oh, God, Mother!

Blood! Blood!

Are you stating, Counsel,

you're not gonna offer any

contradictory psychiatric testimony?

Yes, Your Honor.

On the basis

of this staff report,

Norman Bates is judged

restored to sanity

and is ordered released


What about his victims?

Don't they have any say?

Can you restore them?

Madam, please sit down.

This matter

is being represented

by the District Attorney.

Your Honor, my name

is Mrs. Lila Loomis.

I have a petition here

signed by 743 people

against Norman Bates' release,

including the relatives

of the seven people

he murdered.

Doesn't that give me

the right to speak out?

Has the District Attorney

advised Mrs. Loomis

about her rights

in this matter?

Yes, Your Honor.

I explained that her petition

had no effect

on these proceedings.

Did you explain to her

that this hearing...

Why are you people

just sitting here?

Don't you realize they're going

to release a homicidal maniac?

I must ask you to sit down

or I'll have the bailiff

remove you

from this courtroom.

If you've

any further questions,

please discuss them

with the District Attorney

after this hearing.

Why bother?

It's all too obvious,

our courts

protect the criminals,

not their victims.

Congratulations, Norman.

Turning now

to calendar number 71143.

Is that all there is

to it?

That's all there is

to it. Let's go.

Let the record reflect

that the defendant

is present with counsel.

Just like I said,

they let him go.

I'll call you later.

Are you satisfied,


Turning a murderer loose

on an innocent public?

Mrs. Loomis, Norman was

not convicted of murder.

He was found "not guilty"

by reason of insanity.

And since he is

no longer...

That is just

legal hocus-pocus

and when he

murders again,

you will be

directly responsible.

Well, this belongs

to Mr. Toomey

who runs the motel.

Want me to find him?

I'll introduce you.

No, no. It'll... lt'll wait.

What's the matter?

Uh, I saw someone.


L-ln that window.

They haven't had a tenant

in the house for years.

I guess

I'm just nervous.

Well, that's understandable

under the circumstances.


Well, this is it.


You don't have to

stay here, you know.

I could find you

a place in town.

No, no.

L... I want to stay here.

Then as long

as you realize

that the memories are

more likely to reoccur here...

But you know how to handle

that now, don't you?


You start work at noon today.

Don't forget.

No, I won't.

I don't suppose you will.

What's wrong?

Oh, nothing, really.

I just wish there hadn't been

all those cutbacks,

there'd be

a trained social worker

looking in on you

from time to time.

Well, I have you,

don't I?

Damn right you do.

I had the phone


Any trouble, use it.


Thanks, Doctor,

for everything.



Norman, what did you put

in my tea?

I'm gonna get you

for this, Norman.

I'm gonna show you

what happens

to bad little boys

who poison their mothers.

I'm going to kill you!

Can I help you?

I'm Norman. Norman Bates.

The new cook's helper.

Oh, yes.

Doctor what's-his-name

called about you.


I'm the one

who urged Mr. Statler

to give you the job.

I think

it's very Christian

to forgive and forget,

don't you?

I sure do.

So do I. Myrna.

This is Norman Bates.

That's Myrna, Norman.

Come on, I'll introduce you

to Mr. Statler.

He's in the back.

Ralph, this is Norman Bates.

You have to tell me what.

Just give me...

Ralph, this is Norman Bates,

your new helper.

Hi. Get him an apron,
