The Bozeman motel is eerily similar to the Bates Motel
Psycho is a 1960 suspense/horror film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and was originally inspired by the crimes of Wisconsin serial killer Ed Gein. The film depicts an encounter between a secretary who is in hiding after embezzling from her employer, and lonely and profoundly disturbed hotel proprietor.
- The establishing shot of the motel is very similar to the establishing shot of the Bates Motel in Psycho, including the "Vacancy" sign outside.
- Both motels contain mentally disturbed killers.
- Sylar and Mohinder check into rooms 22 and 23, respectively. Marion checks into room 1.
- Some have found Sylar (especially as Gabriel Gray) and Norman Bates (especially as Anthony Perkins's portrayal) to be similar in appearance: both have an unassuming look and a simple haircut. They both appear to be in their early-to-mid-20s. They are both tall, slender, and handsome. The relationships they have with their mothers are similar as well--their dysfunctional relationships help motivate Sylar and Norman to murder.
The Bates Motel from Psycho is eerily similar to the Bozeman motel.
Sylar as Gabriel Gray
Norman Bates from Psycho bears a distinct resemblance to Gabriel Gray.
