Teasers for A&E's Bates Motel are creepy and short, so you should definitely watch them

(Video link) Well, color me optimistic. I really wasn't sure about A&E making a "prequel show" to Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, but now I'm wondering if it's better to keep an open mind. Because these two teaser trailers are delightfully spooky, with tiny, amuse-bouche amounts of suspense packed into about 15 seconds each. Enough to pique my interest, at least, but I'll let you decide for yourself. The second teaser is after the jump.

Teaser #2 (video link):

Feels the tiniest bit like both teasers are trying to capture the attention of the American Horror Story audience, but I'll cop to being interested in the story of the young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and Mother (Vera Farmiga). I mean, what happened to that kid, anyway?

    It’s amazing how such brief trailers can be spoiled by the preview images on the youtube videos.

  2. “After the jump” — hee-hee-hee.

  3. That image with the sink makes me think of a Richard Kadrey photo but I just looked through some of his and I couldn’t find a similarity to a particular one.

    Orange & blue hues… Grimy effects… That creepy sound cue… These seem painfully generic. Couldn’t someone just add a “Saw” logo to the end of these & who would know the difference?
