The Rating System

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.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Bates Motel, Season 3 (2015)

Starring: Vera Frarmiga, Freddie Highmore, Olivia Cooke Max Theiriot, Nestor Carbonell, Kenny Johnson

A mother and her unbalanced son run a motel in a small town. She battles with the city and a rich developer who is trying to move the highway. And then there is the random deaths which keep popping up.

My Take:
This season turned it up a notch in weirdness and uncomfortable scenes as Norman's relationship is finally more deeply explored and the viewer sees how unstable the young man actually is. Still for me the whole Norman and Norma dynamic is the least interesting of the show. I am far more intrigued with Dillon's estranged relationship with his mother Norma and brother Norman and his father-uncle and his trying to be a legit marijuana grower. This season was a make or break season for me and it did just enough to keep me on board for season four.

Rating: In the middle

Watched: Hulu / A&E
