Universal 貝茨旅館 驚悚開張

媽寶男孩: 恐怖大師希區考克的經典《驚魂記》被譽為驚悚電影的開山始祖。你可以將這部視為其現代版前傳。Freddie Highmore-大家可以認得出他就是電影《巧克力冒險工廠》的Charlie-飾演青少年Norman Bates,影集描繪在《驚魂記》恐怖的事件發生前,他與聲名狼藉的Norma Bates的生活。 這個月,他們怪異的母子關係就讓你毛骨悚然,這樣的情緒化操控和壓抑管教塑造Norman的殺手特質。由電視影集《Lost檔案》的製作團隊打造出品,觀眾絕對可以期望有很多《Lost檔案》般的迂迴曲折劇情,這樣拍攝手法新潮又令人膽顫心驚的影集將讓人難忘,無法錯過。

 

Mummy’s boy: Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Psycho is widely hailed as the grandfather of horror films. Well, think of this as a prequel set in modern days. Freddie Highmore – most recognizable as Charlie from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – takes on the role of teenage Norman Bates in a series depicting his life with the infamous Norma Bates before the horrifying events of Psycho. This month, let this strange mother-and-son duo get under your skin as you watch the emotional smothering and manipulation mould Norman into the killer he becomes. From the executive producer of TV series Lost, expect “a lot of the twists and turns you might have liked on Lost” and brace yourself for a stylishly shot, bone-chilling series that will be impossible to ignore and even harder to forget.
