    Ditto. It was actually good where OMEN IV was so-bad-it's-good.

    I love Psycho IV: The Beginning. It has many priceless moments and is a worthy sequel. Omen IV is just awful.

    I'm not a big fan of either but PSYCHO 4 at least had the wonderfully twitchy Anthony Perkins,it gets my vote.

    Man... if it's been 4 years since my last rewatch of something, I flat-out don't trust my opinions anymore. (Well: other than on The Burning.) But I do believe The Awakening is a better sequel than Damien or The Final Conflict. Easily. I'd also love to say it follows the formula of a remake a lot less. But I can say it feels less pressure to live-up to the original than either parts 2 or 3.

    Psycho IV again makes me wish Mick Garris were a better director. His films tend to be extremely visually pleasing.

    I voted for PIV.

    Psycho IV - and Olivia Hussey as Norman's mother. I loved it.
