Hot on the announcements of Universal's other fall horror titles comes news of the re-issues of PSYCHO II and PSYCHO III. Both films will be released on September 13th for a meager $12.98, so don't expect any supplements. Both will be in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, and will have English and Spanish sound options, with the third film also having French. The previous releases, the six years old (and now discontinued) Goodtimes discs, were non-anamorphic, and PSYCHO II was previously pan & scan. So there Universal discs promise the first widescreen transfer for PSYCHO II, and the first anamorphic treatment for both. Now that is somethign to go and tell mamma about!

As classic as the origional Psycho was, I think Psycho 2 was more than a worthy follow-up. Part 3 isn't too shabby either.

I already own Psycho 2 and 3 from Good Times, so I won't be double dipping on either one. When Part 4 comes out, I will buy it then.

Actually only the Psycho 2 Goodtimes disc is p/s, part 3 is widescreen. I'll be double dipping on Psycho 2 at least for the widescreen, I'll probably also double up on part 3.

It's me, Billy

Wow. I think the Goodtimes discs are complete shit. Psycho II is MAR - open-matte and Psycho III, while preserved in its OAR of 1.85:1, is non-anamorphic. Not only that, but the quality of the transfers are really bad. Both films need to be cleaned up big time. These new Universal discs sound great. Both films matted to 1.85:1 and 16x9 enhanced - I'm sold! I hope the original Psycho (1960) also gets a new 16x9 transfer. Why the hell isn't Universal releasing Psycho IV: The Beginning on DVD though?

The price is nice ,though I had hoped for some solid extras,of course I had hoped for them with the SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW and DEMON KNIGHT reissues too.
