So I just started the greatest show. It’s called Bates Motel, and it’s a modern-day prequel to the Hitchcock classic, Psycho. I was looking for something super-creepy to replace American Horror Story during it’s off-season, and I think I’ve found it.
I’m not going to say too much about it other than that it is soooo creepy. It’s like Hitchcock meets with Twin Peaks (and how amazing does that sound???). It’s on Netflix and I highly recommend that you check it out.
One thing I noticed while I was watching it was that I loved the clothing. Norman Bates and Norma, his mother, both look straight out of the film Psycho, while everyone else in the town seems relatively modernized. It’s a really cool dynamic. I really recommend watching Psycho before you watch the show though, because I definitely appreciate things more since I’ve seen the film. There are a lot of really cool Hitchcock nods. Also, the supporting characters are really interesting on the show. Just watch it.
Since I was so inspired by the show’s visuals, I put together a little lookbook/inspiration post from the show. I just love it.
