200,000 Views and 'Bates Motel' Featurette!

I just want to start this post off by saying thanks to all of you readers who stop by my blog everyday and support all things horror. Because of you guys, I reached 200,000 views today — a goal I never would have imagined reaching in such a short time. Rhino’s Horror simply started as something to do when I was bored, but it quickly turned into a living breathing beast that took on a life of its own. Through this blog I’ve had the good fortune to meet so many great people that share the same passion, being by far the most rewarding part. I can’t thank you guys enough!Screen shot 2012-12-14 at 4.51.46 PM

Now, onto the horror! A&E’s Psycho prequel, Bates Motel, has finally debuted a featurette that shows the very first footage from the series complete with cast and crew interviews. In the trailer we get a great look at the tone of the series and it definitely seems to be pretty dark. At first I was a bit on the fence when they announced that the series would take place in present day but it seems like they nailed it as far as putting a classic character like Norman Bates in modern times. It was definitely a gamble and so far it looks to have payed off.

Bates Motel” serves as a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film, “Psycho,” and promises to give viewers and intimate portrayal of how Norman Bates’ (Freddie Highmore) psyche unravels through his teenage years and just how deeply intricate his relationship to his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga), truly is.

What do you guys think?

  1. Congratulations, Ryan! I hit the 200,000 mark not too long ago and was quite happy; so I can understand your elation. It’s like being in the Mile High Club or something.

  2. God damn, in less than a year?? Whats your secret man?!

    Congrats, truly well deserved. Love stopping by here, easily one of the best blogs I read, keep up the excellent work Ryan 🙂

    1. Thanks so much man! I’m not sure what the secret is other than a bit of luck. My blog struggled for a while to get views but then one of the posts I wrote spread like wild fire and pulled in an insane amount of viewers so ever since then I’ve been getting steady traffic. Thanks for stopping by as much as you do man; forever grateful!

  3. 200,000 in less than a year? Man, thats serious traffic. I’ll be a year in January as well but im not even a fraction of that. I’m definitely doing something wrong. Congrats anyway man. Well Done!

    1. Thanks man! Hahah, I thought this trailer might turn you around because I knew you were a bit skeptical about it. So far it’s definitely shaping up to be pretty interesting.
