Psycho House (sometimes referred to as Psycho House: Psycho III) is a 1990 novel by American writer Robert Bloch,[1] a sequel to his 1959 novel Psycho and 1982 novel Psycho II.[2]

The novel is not related to the 1986 film Psycho III or the 1990 film Psycho IV: The Beginning. However, it may have been inspired by the telefilm Bates Motel.

Plot summary[edit]

Ten years after Norman Bates' death, a local entrepreneur has rebuilt the Bates Motel in Fairvale as a tourist attraction. Amy Haines travels to the infamous "Psycho House" to write a book about Bates when mysterious murders begin to occur. Haines faces resistance from the community when she enlists the help of a group to investigate the murders.

The book didn’t receive much critical acclaim as did Bloch’s first Psycho installment.
