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?
