The exterior of the Bates' house is a faithful reproduction of the design for the characters' house in Psycho (1960), which was in turn modeled by Alfred Hitchcock after Edward Hopper's 1925 painting The House by the Railroad. That painting was the very first one that was acquired by New York's Museum of Modern Art (in 1930). See more »
The audio for Norma's car is always that of a diesel engine but the car, a Mercedes 280 SE 4.5, is a gasoline powered V8. See more »

Names in the main credits have one letter (in each part of the name) in blue neon, like the Bates Motel sign. The letter is usually at or near the middle of the name. See more »
The story is exquisite and unique. A perfect combination of love story, thriller, drama, and a little comedy. The talented Vera Farmiga is excellent, along with Freedie Highmore, Max Theriot, and Nestor Carbonell.
