I agree with Mavis that one of the main character, Norman who suffered from necrophilia. But he also suffered from schizophrenia in this film too. Actually, these two mental illness had a very close relationship between Norman on account of Norman's mother. It was because Norman's father was died when he was young, so he was fostered by his mother. However, his mother met a man accidentally some years later, thus she cold - shouldered to Norman gradually. Later, Norman discovered his mother didn't care about him again. Although he couldn't accept this fact, he still loved and respected his mother very much. Therefore, he killed his mother because "The obsessive thought to murder a person meant to enjoy love of a person." I thought this was the pre - Oedipal stage between he and his mother because he wanted to occupy his mother's love, that's why he killed his mother and his mother's lover.
