bates motel is so fucking good and hardly anyone that i know watches it it’s so infuriating what’s wrong with you people!! last nights episode took on the iconic shower death scene from the original psycho but in such a modernized and radicalized way (no spoilers but it was so fucking good) everyone needs to stop what they’re doing and watch 🗣 bates 🗣 motel 🗣
Honestly??? When he slammed the door too loud, and you screamed, he started screaming because you were screaming
He scared his poor bean??? Unacceptable!
Probably scared of loud noises himself, to be honest
Both of you were scaring the other to the max
Finally you calm down, and he asks you why you screamed like that
“Well,,, you startled me,,” you smile awkwardly. “Sorry.”
He instantly feels bad x100
Lots of hugs and apologies (even though you told him it was no big deal)
ITs A bIG DEaL tO HiM!
Always opens door quietly, and greets you in a soft voice.
Vows to do his best to never scare you again, no matter what
Very loving and understanding of it all
Found out when you guys were watching a scary movie
You were good at not showing how scared you were
But you w e r e
After that you couldn’t sleep for awhile, and when he asked you told him that you’re scared of a lot of things, movies being one of them
Of course, it’s hard to convince you that there is no threat because you’re just scared of the bad people in the world.
Zen finds your caution and jumping kinda cute tbh, but he takes it very seriously
He always knocks before entering, he even has a special knock so you know it’s him
When you’re showering you can’t help but think of the scene from Hitchcock’s Psycho, so Zen brings up a great idea!!
While you’re showering he’ll rehearse his lines in the bathroom with you! And sometimes he’ll speak softly while you go to sleep, since he knows you don’t like silence
Honestly? Kinda surprised
I mean, you’re you, in her eyes you’re so brave, and daring, and courageous, and fearless, she never would’ve guessed that you get spooked easily!
She actually kinda likes it, it reminds her that you’re not a godly being and that she can’t expect you to be Strongx10 all the time
She is very gentle with things, like setting things down and opening doors
She honestly just loves you so much, and will protect you like you protect her no matter what
In public she is like,,, so protective, even when you aren’t spooked
She sees someone shady? Gotta get MC away from them!!
She kinda likes the feeling of protecting you, and she lo v e s when you grab onto her arm when you jump
She just,, is in awe at how cute and kind and soft you are
She’s just full of love for you, man
He has the best security in the world, why on earth are you afraid?
He doesn’t really get that you’re just jumpy and easily spooked, tbh
Just because he doesn’t get it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t activate Jumin Protection Mode right away!
He gets very very upset when one of the guards causes you to jump, he even threatens to fire them for not being more careful
Takes you a long time to convince him to not, because it was just an accident anyways!
During Jumin and MC cuddle time he’ll stroke your hair softly whispering about how he’ll always be there to protect you
He may or may not be slightly aroused by you clinging to him whenever you get spooked
Loves when you go to him for anything, this being one of them
Offers to get even more security (if even possible)
Totally down for the idea of you never leaving the apartment?? Like sign him up for that, Jumin Han will 100% agree to that
He holds you really tightly at night so you don’t get scared
Very quiet and gentle in his actions, and doesn’t raise his voice ever, even if he’s stressed, bc Trustfunkid loves you with all his heart and would never want to be the cause of you jumping or getting spooked (even if its kinda cute)
Desensitizes scary things, to help it be less scary to you, and is actually really good at it?
Okay but he literally shows you how impossible it is for someone to break in, so that you feel a bit safer
Attack hugs! He loves the little squeal you make when he sneaks up behind you and wraps his arms around your tummy
He understands that there are some fears that it’s pretty hard for you to get over, and when you come across one of them he is very sincere and serious about it. Joking only helps with certain things and he knows that
When shady people are on the street he wraps his arm tightly around your waist and shows you endless affection to get your attention away from the scary people and back to him
One time he did go too far and put on a scary mask and jumped out at you
You cried instantly
He felt horrIBLE so he took you outside and burned the mask as proof that he would never do that again
And the sweetest and cutest thing he’s done for you????
When you two were watching a ghost movie, he knew you’d probably get spooked as heck so when you went to bed he literally went around the house and put salt on every windowsill and made sure the environment was ghost free!
When you woke up he showed you all the stuff he did to make sure everything was 100% safe
Just a bean about it all tbh
It kinda startled him when you screamed at the door slamming
But he gets it, he jumps at small noises too because he can’t actually see what’s going on
Holds you very close no matter what
Reminds you that you have nothing to be afraid of, because he’ll always be here for you!
You don’t know this, but every night while you’re asleep he’ll get up and check all the locks, just to make sure that you actually have nothing to be afraid of
Out of everyone, he can relate and understand the most
While you’re scared of little things like loud noises and movies, he’s scared of being alone and losing trust
So you can both help each other out!!
Though he does worry about you, all day every day, even if he doesn’t show it
He wants to know what caused you to jump so badly, but he knows that you’ll tell him when you’re ready to tell him
You don’t push things out of him, so he gives you the same treatment
Says things like, “just me you little idiot,” and, “stop worrying so much.”
Deep down he is concerned for you and knows that if anything happens to you he’ll kill the one who did it
Will honestly never let anybody weird touch you??
You’re his savior, so he has to keep you safe in return
April showers bring May flowers… but film’s most infamous shower isn’t a rainstorm, it’s a 78 shot 52 cut murder! Filmmaker, Alexandre Philippe came to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival with his film 78/52 screening in the Midnight section. The film explores the legendary shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 Psycho. Philippe is pictured above, alongside actress Marli Renfro, who was the body double for Janet Leigh in the notorious thrilling shower scene.
“In 78 setups and 52 cuts, the deliriously choreographed two-minute shower sequence in Psycho ripped apart cinema’s definition of horror. With a shocking combination of exploitation and high art, Alfred Hitchcock upended his own acclaimed narrative structure by violently killing off a heroine a third of the way through his film, without explanation, justification, or higher purpose. Psycho played out like a horrific prank, forcing audiences to recognize that even the most banal domestic spaces were now fair game for unspeakable mayhem.
With black-and-white film-geek reverence, director Alexandre O. Philippe breaks down this most notorious and essential scene shot for shot, enlisting the help of film buffs and filmmakers alike—including Guillermo del Toro, Bret Easton Ellis, Karyn Kusama, Eli Roth, and Peter Bogdanovich. 78/52 examines Janet Leigh’s terrified facial expressions and the blink-and-you-miss-it camera work, not just within the context of the film but also with an eye toward America’s changing social mores—revealing how one bloody, chaotic on-screen death killed off chaste cinema and eerily predicted a decade of unprecedented violence and upheaval.” - Harry Vaughn

I want Kogami to stop being a little shit and come back to Japan and he better apologise to Akane. Also he needs to sort everything out with Gino bc sexual tension and shit. Shimotsuki better sort her act out and stop being a bitch, (or just kill her, I couldn't care less as long as she stops being mean to Gino)DON'T FORGET A GINO SHOWER SCENE PLZ. Kogami also need to meet Sugo, and that's a must. DID I MENTION A GINO SHOWER SCENE?! Hinakawa needs to be protected at all costs and wrapped up like a burrito and I just want them to all be happy ok?!
oh yeah I want a Gino shower scene plz, everyone wants a Gino shower scene.
I think I’ve watched ”Psycho” enough times to recite it in my sleep. In fact, I think I have fallen asleep to it, which doesn’t help that matter. Fun fact about the movie though; the shower scene in Psycho which Anthony Perkins is most known for, wasn’t even him. He was in New York filming a Broadway show. Could you imagine being known for a scene that wasn’t even you? I would feel bad for the person who did it, and got no recognition for it. Damn Anthony Perkins for being so dreamy.
