"A boy's best friend is… his mother."

- Norman Bates

Norman Bates is the antagonist of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho and the protagonist of the Psycho film series. He was a recurring character throughout Halloween Horror Nights. He has appeared in his own line of Psycho houses, as well as a few guest appearances elsewhere.

Storyline[edit | edit source]

Orlando[edit | edit source]

A man with a nice demeanor, if somewhat lacking in social skills. Unfortunately behavior by a dominating mother has driven this man’s mind insane- literally. He would have episodes where he would believe that HE was the Mother. He is one of the many monsters under Adaru’s command to ensnare terror from guests.

Hollywood[edit | edit source]

A man with a kind heart, but a insane split personality. Freddy, Jack, Pavel, Jogsaw, and Ghostface welcomed him and his “Mother” for their own events. He still resides; perhaps called by the mysterious forces of darkness.

Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood[edit | edit source]

Norman Bates always appears in the Psycho section of the annual Terror Tram. Later years had him relegated to a wait in line photo op.

  • In 2012 it was revealed that Norman Bates was a part of The Strengoit Legion, most likely because of his ability to lure victims into his motel.
