I gotta say, I'm really pumped for this one. Nothing like a great story about a mother's love. Sure Norma Bates screwed her kid up a bit, but it could be worse, right? I mean he could've run off and joined the circus or something. No... he stays close to his momma. And as we all know in later years loves his momma sooo much he hears her voice and keeps her corpse around long after she's dead and gone. Kinda sweet in a psychotic sort of way.
But seriously, I love the whole mother / son dynamic. Obviously, I wrote it into the Lily Drake series, but a twist on the norm like between Norman and his mother just fascinates me. I really hope this does the original Psycho justice.
I've posted a video below that I just found on youtube. Hadn't seen this one while I surfed around, so thought I'd share. Tell me this kid playing Norman isn't the perfect little mini Anthony Perkins!
