The holiday shopping season officially kicks off tonight and we know it can be difficult to find presents for horror fans that seem to have everything. To help make things easier, we’ve put together the initial list of our holiday gift suggestions, which include cannibal wine, classic horror shirts, vinyl figures and Blu-ray collections.
While a handful of these items are only available at select websites, you should be able to find some pretty good sales on other items starting tonight. Specifically, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart will have big sales on Blu-ray/DVD titles and video games. We’d like to give Tamika Jones a big thanks for helping put this guide together.

Ben Affleck's enjoyed a career resurgence as well as internet ire of late. Here's a look at a few of his underappreciated films...
Ben Affleck doesn't need us. He's got a directorial career of three strong movies from three outings. He has a movie star spouse. He has two Oscars, one for both his downstairs and upstairs toilet, and he gets to tell his kids that he's Batman without having to lie. Furthermore, it's scary to think how good the boxset of his directorial work is going to be in 30 years' time.
But the resurgence of the Affleck, culminating in his Best Picture winning movie Argo, and his casting as Batman in Batman Vs Superman, overlooks the fact that his CV is hardly short of really good films, really good choices, and some really good performances. Whilst most of the press he's »
ABC hasn't had ratings success on Sundays at 10pm in awhile. Pan Am, 666 Park Avenue, Gcb, and Red Widow were all cancelled. Will Betrayal be a different story and end up renewed for a second season? Time will tell.
On Betrayal, the extra-marital affair of two professionals gets even more complicated when their families end up on the opposite sides of a murder trial. The cast includes Stuart Townsend, Hannah Ware, Henry Thomas, Chris Johnson, Wendy Moniz, Braeden Lemasters, Elizabeth McLaughlin, and James Cromwell.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Ryan Murphy has created the perfect TV drama to showcase the best female actresses around. American Horror Story: Coven continues the tour de force work of Jessica Lange, the "supreme" witch of a coven of witches set in New Orleans. She is electric in every scene. Last year's American Horror Story: Asylum saw Lange as sister Jude, another character that held her own with another acting lion, James Cromwell. Great news for us fans of the series! FX orders a fourth Installment of American Horror Story. The networked has ordered a fourth installment of 13 episodes.

As a horror fan, my initial reaction to hearing Glee creators Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy’s next project would be a horror-themed series was something along the lines of, “Um, what?” Of course, the first season premiered to some surprisingly positive reviews, appeasing both horror fans and critics alike, not only creating a provocatively creepy vibe, but also presenting a story that kept viewers on edge week to week. That was Season 1 though – Season 2 is a completely different story.
No, seriously. American Horror Story: Asylum tells a completely unrelated story to the original season, setting up the anthology collection mentality that Season 3 would follow. Numerous cast members returned and Falchuk and Murphy certainly attempted to push boundaries once again – but this maddening story of psychological horror lacked the wit and flowing storytelling that made American Horror Story‘s inaugural season such a smash-hit.

A famous pig helped James Cromwell to an Oscar-nomination for his role as kindly Farmer Hoggett in the children's fantasy Babe. Now the Los Angeles-born actor is giving something back via a high-profile campaign to end "animal abuse" at a pork supplier for the Us chain Walmart.
In a new video presented by animal rights group Mercy For Animals, Cromwell details a hidden-camera investigation which he says has uncovered "torture" at a pork supplier in Minnesota which is used by America's best-known retailer.

"Walmart likes to tout its low prices, but when it comes to the pork sold in its stores, animals are left to pay the highest price of all: a life filled with misery and deprivation," says Cromwell in the video. »

James Cromwell, who played the benevolent farmer in “Babe,” is continuing his crusade against animal cruelty with a new video targeted at retail giant Walmart. In the video, the animal-rights activist (and more recently star of “American Horror Story”) is accompanied by hidden-camera footage purportedly recorded at a Walmart pork supplier that depicts pigs being mutilated, confined to tiny “gestation crates” and slammed against the ground.

American Horror Story: Asylum threw people for something of a loop before it aired, and certainly stirred up the general populace once it did. An unusual spin for something that claims to be a series, each “season” has no connection to the last, apart from the return of some of the actors, Ahs: Asylum nevertheless held its viewers and quickly moved the series as a whole into the forefront of the collective consciousness.
This trend continues with the latest installment, Coven, despite the fact that I think we might be going a little goofy.
The story kicks off in the ’60s with reporter Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson) getting inside Briarcliff asylum, hoping for a story. Like any good reporter, she isn’t honest about what she’s looking to report on, and her real goal is a chance to talk with Bloody Face, a serial killer who has recently been sentenced to the asylum. »

By now, you’d have to have been living under a rock not to know that FX’s American Horror Story is one of the most groundbreaking series to hit the horror scene in a long time. The format of the show finds us following a brand new cast of characters through the twists and turns of a self-contained plotline each season.
Stunning camera work, unique storylines, and breakout acting from talented actors of the likes of Jessica Lange and Zachary Quinto have all combined to make American Horror Story a modern work of art in progress. The show’s second season, American Horror Story: Asylum is an especially noteworthy installment, firmly securing the show’s place as a respected and refreshing contribution that is elevating television to a new level.

FX’s American Horror Story has helped change the way we consume terror tales on television. First of all, each season is self-contained and although some performers can be seen as different characters in each of the three seasons, they are entirely different stories. The limited nature of the premise allows the producers to nab major performers and it has worked with great success, judging by the Golden Globe and Emmy nominations it has been receiving. By having a strong story and an ensemble of repertory players, anchored by the amazing Jessica Lange, the series keeps you from ever getting bored.
With season three now airing, 20th Century Home Entertainment is releasing Asylum, the Complete Second Season. They share the umbrella title but have little to do with one another as Asylum focuses on the inhabitants of an institution for the criminally insane in 1964.

Josh Lucas is an enigma wrapped in charisma as an unnamed businessman who appears in a bayside town and immediately starts working on a battered sailing boat. While channelling his energies into the tub, the stranger arouses the interest of a philosophical waitress (Ayelet Zurer) and her father (James Cromwell), a crusty old mariner with pearls of wisdom to spare.

Last year Fox Home Entertainment held an event at Hollywood Forever Cemetery to celebrate "American Horror Story" Season 1 on Blu-ray that included a murder tour across Los Angeles, a visit to the signature house from the series, and talks by psychics and talent from the show.
So what could they possible do to top that for the home video release of "American Horror Story: Asylum?" Simple: Have us all committed.
For one night, the abandoned and notoriously haunted Linda Vista Hospital was turned into Briarcliff Manor – home to the criminally insane and a select few lucky fans and press. Visitors arrived in the hospital lobby, where they were greeted by the Mother Superior and forced to sign their lives away. Food and booze were served while familiar Asylum tunes “Dominique” and “The Name Game” were appropriately played over a loudspeaker.
Several drinks later, we were ushered into the chapel, where »

With a title like Betrayal, a time slot after Revenge, and beautiful protagonists like lawyer Jack McAllister (Stuart Townsend, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and photographer Sara Hanley (Hannah Ware, Boss), I expected this show to beat us over our heads with outlandish passion scene after passion scene until our eyes bled.
But what we got was a very tame soap opera with none of the high-wattage emotional displays. The premise sounded promising: Jack and Sara are each married with kids and start an affair. But it turns out Jack will become the arch legal nemesis of Sara’s husband in a high-profile murder trial. »

This evening, ABC is unveiling their new romantic drama, Betrayal. Is it a good companion series for Revenge? Will it become a hit, a moderate success, or will it be quickly cancelled? Is it worth watching?
Betrayal revolves around professional photographer Sara (Hannah Ware) and top attorney Jack (Stuart Townsend) who, despite being married to other people, have a torrid affair. Things become even more complicated when Sara's husband and Jack end up on the opposite sides of a murder trial. The rest of the cast includes Henry Thomas, Chris Johnson, Wendy Moniz, Braeden Lemasters, Elizabeth McLaughlin, and James Cromwell.
Sound interesting? Here's what some of the critics are saying:
NY Times: "It would help if Mr. Townsend and Ms. Ware had chemistry, but they’re basically generic-looking actors playing out an unsurprising dynamic."
La Times: "If only we »
