I have to admit that I’m having a little trouble getting into this post. Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho is an all time horror classic of my youth and I’m leery of this, and any other for that matter, attempt to bring it into contemporary times. That’s what A&E and executive producers Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights) have done with their Psycho prequel Bates Motel.

It’s the story of Norman Bates in his teenage years portrayed by Freddie Highmore, yep that kid from Johnny Depp’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I have to say that raises the “creep” meter for me right there. The show premieres next Monday, March 18th at 10PM Eastern time.

Highmore is joined by a solid cast with Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed) as his mother, Max Thieriot (Disconnect), Olivia Cooke (Blackout), and Nicola Peltz (The Last Airbender).

Check out the first six minutes and a teaser and some other stuff we’ve collected below.

What do you think, will you give it a chance? I’m hearing some good things when I have looked around the Internet, but I hope it starts off quick, I don’t know how long I can hang around with some of my other favorite shows returning to television in the coming weeks.

What’s up Bastards! After having some damn problems we are back and so is DVD Tuesday! Since Tuesday has just passed on, I decided to do a “lite” version and pretty much recommend what came out last week and this week as well.

In other words, I’m only going to list the stuff that you should at least check out. You can expect a full return of DVD Tuesday next week but for now, check after the jump to see what came out and see if there is something you want! (more…)

Hitchcock Movie Posters Re-done

thebirds2Once again, another artist shows off his awesome skill and does his own rendition of movie posters and all I can do is sit here and be jealous as all I can do is a bad rip-off drawing style of Akira Toriyama. Laz Marquez, a graphic designer, released 4 movie posters that are based from Hitchcock’s (insert penis joke, giggity) masterpieces and they are awesome. Have to admit, they are all done well and smart and would be perfect poster art to advertise Hitchcock’s movie to todays young audience. This year has been awesome for people to release their versions of stuff and once again, this just excites for the next batch of peoples rendition of art that already exist. Check after the break for the other three posters. (more…)
