Sorry. I think it’s a rule that horror bloggers have to kick off these official teasers with the worst pun imaginable. Surprised by the raw power of Bates Motel, season one, I found myself hooked on this dreamy, prophetic horror history. Everyone is familiar with Norman Bates, now we can get to the roots of his motivation, and A&E aren’t dumbing it down. Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga are back as the less than charming Norman and Norma Bates.
Season Two will debut in 2014.
A modern re-imagining and prequel to the movie Psycho (1960), “this story begins with the earlier years of a teenage Norman Bates and his mother Norma who live in an old house overlooking the adjoining motel which they are renovating. The house and hotel both come with secrets of their own as does the new town which the Bates’ now call home.”
