A&E has released five rather disturbing teaser posters for the upcoming new drama series Bates Motel.  The show acts as a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s horror classic Psycho, as it centers on the relationship between a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother (Vera Farmiga).  These posters show that there’s much more going on in Bates Motel than meets the eye, and I continue to get a strong Twin Peaks vibe from the series.  Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Friday Night Lights alum Kerry Ehrin are running things behind the scenes, so here’s hoping the full series delivers.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser posters, and click here to watch the first full trailer for the show.  The series also stars The series also stars Nestor CarbonellMax ThieriotOlivia Cooke, and Mike Vogel.  Bates Motel premieres on A&E on March 18th.

Here’s the synopsis for Bates Motel:

In “Bates Motel,” following the tragic death of her husband, Norma Bates buys a motel on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of White Pine Bay, seeking a fresh start. As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn’t quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive – and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets.
