1.1 First you dream, then you die
I hope somebody’s been keeping score because I’ve lost track. Do the sequels and alternative versions of Psycho outnumber Norman Bates’ victims, or is it the other way round? Whichever is in the lead, both tallies are set to increase with Bates Motel, a kind of ‘reboot prequel sequel', covering the grim events at the titular motel after Psycho IV: The Beginning but before Psycho while shifting them to the present day.
Still with me? Good. Bates Motel introduces us to a seventeen year-old Norman Bates as he and his mother start a new life in California after the death of Mr. Bates Senior. It may be a reboot, but young Norman’s destiny is inescapable. »
