First Look at Norman Bates in 'Bates Motel,' Plus 'Evil Dead' Poster Makes a Bold Statement

Bates Motel Nomran and Norma

A&E is hard at work on its new series Bates Motel, which promises to give us a new perspective on Hitchcock’s classic Psycho characters. EW has snagged a set photo showing teenaged Norman (Freddie Highmore) and a much younger version of his infamous mother Norma (Vera Farmiga). Highmore really looks the part…

The show is set to chronicle how Norman’s psyche evolved while growing up – leading up to the infamous events that eventually transpired at the Bates Motel. The show will air next year.

Evil Dead teaser makes bold claim 

Hollywood horror films tend to play it safe and predictable these days, coming across more like date movies than something designed to disturb and unsettle an audience. Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead remake appears to be heading in a different direction if that first trailer is any indication – a gory, violent and unsettling one based on what we saw in that clip.

The first teaser poster for the film ups the stakes even more – claiming that the new movie will be “The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience.” We somehow doubt that, but hey – in the pantheon of great poster taglines, it’s not too shabby.

We’ll have to wait until April 12, 2013 to see if Alvarez’s film can live up to its own hype and escape the shadow of its famous inspiration, but until then have a look at the new artwork and let us know what the most terrifying film you’ve ever experienced (so far) is in the comment section.
