Neon text applied flawlessly upon a black background is the perfect look for the horror genre of the show.
Added to that is a mother and son who look as if they are very close--just a little bit too much too close.
Neon signage has always been the ideal setting for horror flicks. Go ahead, comment on your favorite slasher flick that took place in an old motel.

|Blank sign taken on film and scanned|
To be sure, while that is seemingly the case with this shot, it's filled with interesting elements among all of the "nothing."
Consider the bricks on the side of the building, the perspective, the people out front, the building's isolation, color and text on the glass windows.
Just gotta love this sign.

|Villa Sur Motel is as retro as you can get|
Here's the Villa Sur Motel, a retro motel with lots of pink and red on the US/Mexico border in Calexico. To the south of this small town is Mexicali, a sizable Mexican metropolis about 60 miles east of Tijuana.
This is one of the border cities were Americans go to the dentist and doctor because they pay half the price for care.
Its population is nearly 700,000.
