It started out as one of the worst ideas we'd heard in a long time. A contemporary set "re-imagining" of Alfred Hitchcock's seminal serial killer flick, PSYCHO? Hell no! But when LOST co-showrunner Carlton Cuse came on board, it was pretty clear that this wasn't to be the lazy cash-in one expected. Then the casting was announced - Freddie Highmore as Young Norman Bates? Inspired. Vera Farmiga - always excellent. The two teaser trailers promised an uncompromisingly dark tone. And now the first full trailer has hit, count us in! Watch the promo below - and stick around for some intriguing behind-the-scenes talking heads. Oh, and that episode 1 spoiler they repeatedly mention... I'm gonna call it right now. Scroll down to the very bottom of the post if you want to read it. But first, enjoy...

* MY SPOILER THEORY? Norman kills his mother in the first episode. Farmiga then sticks around as a "projection" of Norman's thoughts ala Harry Morgan in DEXTER. I'll put a tenner on it!

That kid grew up to look a helluva lot like a young Sam Neill.
