Having examined, investigated and completely broken down the ins and outs of the entire 'Psycho' franchise for my documentary project 'The Psycho Legacy,' I’ve managed to become pretty well versed in the mythology and time-line of all the events as they take place within the universe set up by Sir Alfred Hitchcock in his 1960 adaptation of the Robert Bloch novel 'Psycho' right through to the final prequel/sequel of that particular franchise with 'Psycho IV: The Beginning.'
We are less than a week away from the hotly anticipated premiere of Bates Motel, A&E’s “prequel” to Hitchcock’s masterpiece Psycho. We will have our full review Monday morning, with recaps and dissections every Tuesday morning, but for now, here are five little teasers to look forward to.
Are you ready for a modern version of Norman Bates? Well, ready or not, A&E is ready to roll out it's new original dramatic series loosely based on Alfred Hitchcock's infamous film 'Psycho' and setting the story of Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) in present day.
Ready for your first good look at A&E's upcoming series 'Bates Motel'? Ever since the project was announced, it's been met with much scrutiny and doubt, especially among die-hard Psycho fans and Hitchcock enthusiasts.
