When A&E announced they were going to do a PSYCHO prequel series called BATES MOTEL, it was questionable whether such an iconic character could be reinvented once again (anyone remember the 1998 Gus Van Sant shot-for-shot remake?) However, with the great new previews and an excellent pilot episode, the Carlton Cuse (LOST) executive produced series is as epic and cinematic as you can get with Vera Farmiga playing the domineering Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore playing her jittery high school son Norman. At today’s Winter 2013 Cable TCA’s, Cuse revealed more details about BATES MOTEL and what to expect. Most […]Read On »

Keanu Reeves plays Henry, a Buffalo, N.Y. toll booth operator gamely trying […]Read On »
