Just in time for Halloween, movie makers have recreated the famous Bates home and motel at the former Jackman Landfill site in south Aldergrove.

The 10-part A&E TV series will explore the reasons for Norman Bates’ obsessions that led to the killings he committed in the famous 1960 Alfred Hitchcock movie, Psycho.

The filming at the site has begun, often at night under powerful lights, and it has also become a popular landmark for passersby who recall the original horror-thriller flick.
