Bates Motel Boss Dissects Premiere Twists, Confirms [Spoiler] Theory

8 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Norman Bates’ final descent into Psychosis has begun.

The fifth and final season of A&E’s Bates Motel got underway Monday night, and it was completely, utterly, gloriously nuts. It was also heartbreaking. And on at least one occasion, slightly mystifying.

Below, showrunner Kerry Ehrin tackles some of my burning questions about the premiere, while also teasing what craziness awaits in the remaining nine episodes.

‘Bates Motel’ Review: Season 5 Does Right By Alfred Hitchcock By Ditching His Original Ending

22 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Bates Motel” could not exist without “Psycho,” but soon it could feel like the other way around. Part of the brilliance within Kerry Ehrin’s deep exploration of Alfred Hitchcock’s characters is how even in the modern day — and even while always promising an ending independent of the film’s narrative — it feels as though we’re being given crucial backstory to a character we only came to know as a pervert, murderer, and psychopath — in that order. Fifty-seven years later, “Bates Motel” is filling in the details by fleshing out Norman’s motivations, psychological state, and ultimate descent into madness.

[Editor’s Note: The below analysis contains spoilers for “Bates Motel” Season 4, but not the new season.]

The final season is steeped in more Hitchcockian lore than ever. There’s a subtle nod to the iconic shower scene in the first episode, when Norman mentions how he just finished installing new curtains. We get our first glimpse of Norma’s permanent residence, or at least »

Executive producer Kerry Ehrin also revealed a little bit more information on the character: “Is there a shower scene? All I can tell you is that we pulled Psycho into Bates Motel, not vice-versa. That was always the goal and the fun of it. You will have to watch and find out!”

“Let me just preface by saying it’s one of my favorite films,” Ehrin continues. “But Marion is a woman written in the ’50s by a guy. It was very  much our goal to show you what’s going on in her head to give her more complexity… »

Rihanna Makes Fiery 'Bates Motel' Debut as Marion Crane -- Watch Her First Scene!

31 January 2017 2:34 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Rihanna is checking in to Bates Motel.

One day after the first photo of RiRi in the all-female Ocean’s 8 was unveiled, new footage of the singer’s official debut on Bates Motel is here.

The 28-year-old entertainer will play Janet Leigh’s iconic role of Marion Crane from Psycho in the A&E drama’s fifth and final season, and her anticipated introduction -- released via a minute-long trailer on Tuesday -- is a doozy.

“Can I get a room?” Marion (Rihanna), soaked to the bone, asks Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) one stormy evening.

“Yeah, absolutely,” Norman responds, taking his pick of the room keys, before we see him peeping through a haphazardly-drilled hole in the wall. Creepy.

First look at Rihanna as Marion Crane in Bates Motel

31 January 2017 11:02 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Bates Motel gears up for its fifth and final season, Entertainment Weekly has shared the first images of Rihanna as Marion Crane, the character portrayed by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic Psycho. Take a look here…

“We’re taking threads of [the Psycho] story and definitely using them so it’s recognizable, it’s just where we go with it is very different,” said executive producer Kerry Ehrin. “It’s tough to be in a situation where you’re in love with a guy, and for whatever reason, he keeps stalling. You still have all this hot sex with him, and he’s saying he loves you, but he’s stalling. The internal story of that, for a woman, is a really interesting one. We never really got to see that. In Psycho, you just see the outside of that more. »

9 January 2017 3:39 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

‘Bates Motel’ Trailer: See What Norman Is Up To In Season 5

9 January 2017 2:00 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

There’s very little dialogue in the trailer for the fifth and final season of A&E’s Psycho prequel Bates Motel. Six words to be exact — a call from ‘Mother’: “Norman… dinner” to which Norman (Freddie Highmore) replies, “I’ll be back soon.”  There is much suspense, however, set to the tune of Rosemary Clooney’s 1950s hit “Come On-a My House.” From writers/executive producers Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse, Bates Motel Season 5 picks up almost two years after the death of… »

Derek’s Favorites of 2016

6 January 2017 5:43 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Lurking within pages, displayed on the big and small screens, and at home on the airwaves, the horror genre thrived last year. 2016 was packed with great genre offerings, and although it's difficult to filter through the creepy contents of such a banner year for the genre, I forced myself to choose the moments that stuck with me the most... and still haunt my nightmares.

Green Room: Never did violence feel more real onscreen to me this year than the scenes in Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room. The third feature film from the Blue Ruin and Murder Party director is ripe with palpable frights in its depiction of a vicious battle between a punk band and neo-Nazis led by Patrick Stewart’s calculating Darcy. You can practically feel your sweaty palms wrapping around a broken fluorescent tube as the Ain’t Rights prepare for their most important performance yet as »
