Watch: A&E Releases Teaser Videos For ‘Bates Motel’


Now that the psychological thriller Psycho is enjoying a big of a resurgence thanks to the amazing new film Hitchcock, the time is right for AMC to begin promoting the forthcoming premiere of their new series Bates Motel. As you may know, Bates Motel is a prequel TV series that tells the story of young Norman Bates (played by Freddie Highmore) and his complicated relationship with his mother Norma (played by Vera Farmiga). Check out the teaser video above and then click below to see a second teaser to see if this show tickles your fancy.

If A&E goes for American Horror Story type creepiness (which is a possibility, based on the look and feel of these teaser clips), then I think they’ve got a hit on their hands. I’m intrigued. I will deffo be tuning in when Bates Motel debuts on AMC in March of next year. Are you intrigued?

    This looks really spooky and I like the idea of it being a prequel of sorts.

    Also, when I watched the first teaser I totally thought/wanted the hands shown in handcuffs to start up the “snap, snap” from the Addams Family.
