Gallery: Pop Culture Artists Pay Tribute to Hitchcock’s Legendary Films

“Gallery 1988 — purveyors of all things pop culture — is hosting a gathering full of gallows humor and shadowy mayhem. The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, is the subject of the California gallery’s latest exhibit, which features over 100 artists paying tribute to one of cinema’s most iconic directors. Suspense & Gallows Humor: A Tribute to the All-Time Greatest focuses on the pioneering filmmaker’s psychological thrillers and twisted tales of terror — including Psycho, North by Northwest, The Birds, and more.”- By Alison Nastasi on Apr 2, 2012 6:00pm



“Bates Motel is an American drama thriller television series developed for television by Carlton Cuse, Kerry Ehrin and Anthony Cipriano, produced by Universal Television for A&E.[1]

The series, being a “contemporary prequel”[2][3] to Hitchcock‘s 1960 film Psycho (based on Robert Bloch‘s novel of the same name), depicts the life of Norman Bates and his mother Norma prior to the events portrayed in Hitchcock’s film, albeit in a different fictional town (“White Pine Bay, Oregon,” as opposed to the film’s “Fairvale, California“) and in a modern setting. The series begins after the death of Norma’s husband, when she purchases a motel located in a coastal Oregon town so she and Norman can start a new life.” (Wiki)

    Bates Motel is a very good show. The writers are pretty good at staying true to major themes/motifs of the movie (such as taxidermy, a mother-son dynamic, Norman’s blackouts) but they also put in some creative twists, like the addition of Norman’s brother, his (and his family’s) extensive body count, and making the relationship between Norman and his mother more complicated than the movie portrays.
