SHOW NOTES:
After Psycho III's poor box office performance it seemed Norman was being sent away for good. Until July of 1987 when Bates Motel, a made-for-TV movie, aired on NBC. Intended to launch a prime-time series, Bates Motel jettisons the continuity of the two theatrical Psycho sequels, telling the story of Alex West--a boy who befriended Norman in the mental institution. When Norman dies he leaves Alex his namesake motel...but then must face the possibility the hotel haunted--by Mother, or some other supernatural force. Is this a lost classic, or a properly overlooked film? And how does NBC's Bates Motel compare to A&E's current drama series? If you support Now Playing with a donation you can listen and find out!
