"RiffTrax, please riff '_________________'"

The Bates Motel (1987)

Bud Cort (MASH) and Lori Petty (TANK GIRL) star in this failed 1987 Feature-Length Pilot for an Anthology Series revolving around the Bates Motel. Bud plays Alex West, a man recently released from an asylum, and friend to the late Norman Bates. He inherits Norman's supposidly haunted estate, and decides to re-open the business. There's a strange subplot involving a suicidal motel guest, and a silly SCOOBY-DOO style ending, but this film isn't actually all that bad. If they can riff PSYCHO II, this one is more than worthy.
