A contemporary prequel to Psycho, giving a portrayal of how Norman Bates' psyche unravels through his teenage years, and how deeply intricate his relationship with his mother, Norma, truly is.
Dylan Massett (Max Thieriot) did not exist in the novel or film Psycho, nor did Norman Bates have a sibling.
It's just a dream, Dylan.
Dylan Massett: You wouldn't want to actually hurt anybody though, would you?
Norman Bates: Of course I wouldn't want to. I've never wanted to hurt anyone. Except you once in a while.
The audio for Norma's car is always that of a diesel engine but the car, a Mercedes 280 SE 4.5, is a gasoline powered V8.
Names in the main credits have one letter (in each part of the name) in blue neon, like the Bates Motel sign. The letter is usually at or near the middle of the name.
