Arrow Video’s The Psycho Collection 4K UHD & Blu-ray Arrives Sept 2023

The Psycho Collection 4K UHD & Blu-ray

If you’re wanting all of the Psycho movies on 4K Ultra HD or Blu-ray then Arrow Video has a treat in store for you this September 2023. The UK is getting The Psycho Collection on 4K UHD and Blu-ray which includes Psycho, Psycho II, Psycho III and Psycho IV: The Beginning.

I’ve always thought Psycho II was somewhat underrated, it doesn’t really try to compete with Hitchcock’s classic, and instead it does its own thing. The second film is by far the best of all of the sequels in my opinion.

I’ve added the Psycho II – IV trailers at the bottom of the page.

THE PSYCHO COLLECTION 4K UHD

The collection includes 4K Ultra HD (2160p) presentations of all four films, with new 4K restorations of Psycho II, Psycho III and Psycho IV from the original camera negatives.
