TEASER FOR BATES MOTEL SEASON 2

Bates Motel Banner

 

While things got off to a bit of a slow start in the first season of BATES MOTEL, the story slowly began to escalate into madness; not just Norman’s but the psychosis of the entire town as well. It’s the kind of show that grows on you as it takes things slow to build character and story (a rare thing in modern horror/thriller films and television). In addition to the relationship between Norman Bates and his mother Norma, we’re treated to all kinds of weirdness within the picturesque town itself. While not exactly Twin Peaks, there are definitely some elements of that show thrown in as well.

Synopsis:

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.
