Two decades after the original murders at the Bates Motel, Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) completes his treatment at a mental institution and returns home to find his hotel run down under the management of Warren Toomey (Dennis Franz). Despite a new friendship with a waitress (Meg Tilly) and a job bussing tables at a diner, Norman begins to hear voices once again. No matter how hard he tries, Norman cannot keep “Mother” from returning and coaxing him to unleash the homicidal maniac within.

“For while a part of us hopes that sweet, sensitive, sincere Norman can stay on the straight and narrow… the other part — the depraved, voyeuristic, perverse part — simply wishes to see the old Norman back, dressed in drag and stabbing with abandon the way he did when we first fell so darkly in love with him.” —Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
