After a few fairly disturbing teases, the first trailer for the A&E original series, "Bates Motel," has given us our best look yet at the boy who would "Psycho," and he likes his Apple products.

The trailer (via Twitch) features Freddie Highmore as a modern-age Norman Bates, and while there are small flourishes that remind us of the classic Anthony Perkins performance, this reinterpretation of the Alfred Hitchcock classic does look like its interested in creating a unique world and vision for the myth.

"Bates Motel" premieres on March 18. Let's hope we don't have another Gus Van Sant debacle.
