Psycho II killer (spoilers)

I've read quite a few posts on imdb.com debating whether Mrs. Spool was able to do all the killings since they require her to move around quickly and have the strength to lift bodies as heavy as Toomey's. but why couldn't Norman be the killer of one of them other then Mrs. Spool? He was doing all the killings in part 3, maybe he already regained his Mother half of his identity before Lila's death? He was not completely normal at the beginning since he had a hallucination of his mother talking to him right when he got home before the phone calls started. Plus the diner manager in part 3 mentioned Spool never missed a day of work and 2 of the killings ( the boy and Lila) happened in daytime not to mention the phone calls. Norman could have easily gone completely mad halfway through the film not any better than in part 3.

Some interesting thoughts: assume Norman killed no one in this one other than Spool and Spool never went up to Norman's house at the end of part 2, would the killings have happened in Psycho 3? I mean then there would be no "Mother" at the house for Norman to talk to telling him what to do. What if Spool, Lila, and Mary never bothered Norman in 2, then would Red, Patsy, Duane, and Maureen have lived in part 3's timeline?

Sorry if this has been discussed before but I'm really hyped for the upcoming blu ray release that I want to read some feedback on this while waiting for the commentary on the BD ( hopefully there will be one!)

I always had the impression that Norman killed
Spoiler:
Lila in the cellar
besides
Spoiler:
killing Mrs. Spool at the end. Who I always thought, (Spool)didn't kill anybody in Psycho 2


BTW, Psycho II is one of my favorite sequels. And I'm also looking forward to the Blu-Ray too.


Even though I have seen Psycho 3 (and 4) I really don't remember the film that much to comment on those points you brought up. Sorry about that.

I agree with your statement about who Norman killed since they were both in the same location at that time and Norman is turning insane by then. Psycho 2 is also one of my favorite sequels. 3 is much weaker imo compared to 2 since it's more of a slasher. Also, even though 3 takes place 1 month after 2, Norman seems much different in both age and behavior.

I've always been fascinated by the fact that Psycho 2 was released 22 years after the original. Starring the original Norman, Anthony Perkins. All the while being a dam good movie.

Not bad at the box office to boot. Made for around 5 million, pulled in close to 35 million. And that was 1983. One of the best horror movies to come out that year along side of Christine & Cujo. Only horror movie that did better (money wise)was Jaws 3 in 3-D. And people were in for a surprise with that fair/poor entry to the Jaws series.


Teaser trailer: (that's the late great Percy Rodriguez voice over)

And remember, there wasn't any internet, you found out (for the most part) the first time about new future movies from trailers in the theaters. How great was it to see this little teaser for the first time.
