All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Bates Motel, Season 2 (2014)

Starring: Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke

A teenage Norman Bates moves to a small town after his mother buys a motel.

Season two consists of Norma trying to get the city to stop the new highway which leads her to strange bedfellows, Norman gets a girlfriend whom Mother does not approve, Dylan becomes deeper entrenched in the local drug war, and the Sheriff Romero begins to think Norman may have more to do with the teacher's murder than originally suspected.

My Take:
The two main characters, Norman and Norma, are starting to get annoying to me. Most of the season they bicker and fight and become too needy and demanding to each other. It gets tiresome rather quickly. I find the more intriguing storyline to be with her other son Dylan and his drug dealing ways. However the last two episodes started to get really dark and intense by revealing how messed up Norman and his relations with Mother actually might be.

Rating: In the middle
