Finding the perfect actors for your show is a painstaking art: A few right moves, and you can back up an Emmy truck next to that Brinks truck. A couple of wrong moves, and the whole project is a disaster.

Bates Motel executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin certainly had their hands full when they set out to cast their contemporary Pyscho prequelfor A&E. At Comic-Con on Friday, they treated the audience to a behind-the-scenes look at Bates’ audition process, screening footage of Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke, and Max Thieriot trying on their character for the first time. They show off their acting skills… and Ukranian folk-dancing skills… and Spider-Man impressions. Want to see a true horror show? Watch their auditions below.
