I have been watching the series, Bates Motel, on TV since season one. Psycho (with Anthony Perkins) was one of my favorite movies of all time so I Decided to check out the book by Robert Bloch, 1959. I didn't even know that it was a book first. I just thought it was a screenplay, but had no idea who wrote it. Now I am searching for the original movie to come on TV. You would think that with the number of channels we all get these days that it would be playing somewhere. We just recorded the remake, but I want to see the original. I may have to buy it, but that's okay. I own Psycho II, so I guess I need the first one too. The movie was close to the book. One thing that surprised me was the description of Norman Bates. Do you know how he was different in the movie than he was in the book? Go ahead and guess. Have fun!
