Vate sanitarium rud to be haunted A wild card appears in the persona of Robert Newman Norman's twin brother taken away at birth after the attending doctor pronounced him brain damaged As Robert and Norman grow to know each other Norman senses a darkness in Robert even deeper than that which has lurked in Norman himselfSoon murders begin to occur and a shocking chain of events plunge us even deeper into the deranged madness inside the walls of Psycho Sanitarium. It’s 1960 Norman Bates is in the State Hospital for the Criminally Insane and it’s up to Dr Felix Reed to bring him out of his catatonic state Soon Bates is joined by Robert Newman Norman’s twin brother taken away at birth after a doctor pronounced him brain damaged As Robert and Norman grow to know each other Norman senses a darkness in Robert perhaps even deeper than that which has lurked in Norman himselfPsycho Sanitarium is an intense psychological thriller of murder and deranged madness which gripped me from the first introduction to Norman Bates and his infamous “mother” As anyone who has read or watched Psycho knows Norman is a very complex character to say the least and Chett Williamson manages to portray his character very effectively I couldn’t help but feel some sympathy for Norman as he struggles with the voice of his “mother” inside his head he appeared vulnerable and timid but unfortunately there are many sides to Norman and the author manages to describe the psyche of his character with such conviction that by the end of the book I was terrified This book also explores the treatment of the insane which makes for a dark and uncomfortable read at times some of the treatments were barbaric to say the leastI hold my hands up and admit I have never read Psycho I’ve watched the film numerous times but I never got around to reading the book so I am not in a position to compare the two books Personally I found Psych Sanitarium to be a very a dark and chilling read and thanks to Chet Williamson’s very descriptive writing it was fairly easy to conjure up images of the mental asylum the madness that surrounded it as well as the evil that lurked inside the walls This is very much a character driven book but the plot was well developed with plenty of dark and twisted moments Psycho sanitarium reads and feels like the horror stories I use to read many moons ago atmospheric and full of suspense and intrigue which makes for a very compelling readFirst published at
