UPDATE: Some more information released about the "Bates Motel".
"Bates Motel" is a present-day telling of the "formative years of Norman Bates, [his] relationship with his mother, Norma, and the world they inhabit," said the official statement. "Viewers will have access to the dark, twisted backstory and learn first-hand how Norma helped forge the most famous serial killer of them all."
"Psycho" is widely credited with giving rise to the "slasher" horror genre with its tale of a lonely owner of a desolate motel who's responsible for a string of murders.
With all of the recent success with horror on TV, networks are starting to see what people want. But is a show based on Alfred Hitchcock's classic Psycho what we want?
That's right, A&E announced they will be creating a television series set to be a prequel to the 1960 classic.The show is entitled Bates Motel and will give us a better look into the mind of one of the original slashers,Norman Bates.
Here's what A&E announced: Bates Motel serves as a prequel to the most famous fright film of all-time, Psycho. A&E is currently in script development. Bates Motel will give viewers an intimate understanding of how Norman Bates' psyche developed from his childhood through his teen years. Fans will have access to the dark, twisted back-story and learn first hand how his mother, Norma, and her lover damaged Norman, helping forge the most well-known serial killing motel owner in history.
Haven't we seen this before? That's right, after the failed 1987 pilot for the same titled show following the path of one, Norman Bates.
Do you think its a smart idea to resurrect to Psycho world or just leave it be?
