I believe that Norman bates displayed sinister nature threw his attitude, the camera angels of when he is being filmed and the lighting. Everything is put together to portray Norman bates and a very evil and sinister Character. This adds a lot of suspense to the movie. 

Norman bates has a very evil attitude whenever he is alone with his mother and he thinks that it is ok because no one has told him otherwise.

I believe that the lighting for Norman's character showed how he was a evil and sinister person. Again the scene where he sits down with his first victim shows how the light makes him sinister.

Also in that same scene when he stands up then there is a line down his face that is perfectly down the middle of his face which means he has him inside of him and his evil mother which symbolizes that he is a evil character inside of him. 

To conclude I believe that Norman Bates was a very evil and sinister character by how he was...
