Creepy Bates Motel teaser trailers

While we might have been a little bit unsure when the series was initially announced, we're starting to warm up to the idea of a TV-based Psycho prequel.

These new teaser trailers have helped somewhat. The two menacing promos for Bates Motel promise a pleasingly sinister and stylish show that will give us a modern-day look at a young Norman Bates.

The show stars Freddie Highmore as Norman and Vera Farmiga as his infamous mother.

Do you think it might work?
