Win a night in Australia’s most haunted hotel, Monte Cristo Homestead thanks to the home entertainment release of Bates Motel Season 1.


To celebrate the release of Bates Motel Season 1, releasing on Blu-ray™ and DVD from November 27, Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is giving you the chance to win a night in Australia’s most haunted hotel, the Monte Cristo Homestead.

A modern day prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, Bates Motel Season 1 follows the lives of teenager Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother, Norma (Academy Award® nominee Vera Farmiga). After finding his farther dead, the two purchase a motel and move to White Pine Bay in search of a new life, but they soon discover this idyllic seaside town hides some deadly secrets. Unable to trust anyone but each other, the two indulge in a deeply twisted relationship.

The last person who was shot at Monte Cristo also has a direct link to Bates Motel. In the late 1950s and early 1960s the homestead was rife with squatters and vandals. To help ward them off a local caretaker in his 70s was employed to protect the house. When Psycho was released in Australia in 1960 a young teen (15 years old) became fascinated with the film, watching it once, twice and on the third time he committed a crime he would never forget.  After watching Psycho for the third time he took off and ran up to the big house on the hill and shot the caretaker. Luckily the caretaker survived to tell the tale but the spirit of the boy who was killed apparently still remains at  Monte Cristo, along with the ghosts of the family who originally resided at the house!

The prize includes a night at the haunted house for you and a friend, a ghost tour and a souvenir pack from what has been voted not just Australia’s, but also one ofthe world’s most haunted houses, the Monte Cristso Homestead in Junee NSW.
