American Horror Story: Freak Show Gets Appropriately Freaky First Teaser

4 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early signs indicate that this October’s American Horror Story: Freak Show, the fourth installment of Ryan Murphy’s acclaimed FX anthology series, may be the show’s strangest, creepiest and downright freakiest to date. In the mix this year are conjoined twins, a clown killer named Twisty, a “dark tormentor” looking for revenge on one of the performers, a collector of freaks and even the world’s actual smallest woman. It’s going to be one hell of a season, that’s for sure.

As we head into the fall, FX is mounting an advertising campaign for Freak Show with a delectably creepy teaser that, in typical American Horror Story fashion, is immediately gripping, enigmatic and completely unforgettable. Check it out below.

Freak Show will include a mix of familiar faces from past seasons and newcomers to the American Horror Story family. Jessica Lange toplines as a German ex-pat who runs the freak show, »

18 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. There are only two weeks left in August, and the summer movie season has started winding down. With that in mind, it’s time to start looking ahead to what’s coming out in the fall and winter. And this week’s Trailer Trashin’ examines what looks like a very promising November release – Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film Interstellar.

Premise: When a wormhole – which theoretically can connect widely-separated regions of space – is discovered, explorers and scientists unite to embark on a voyage through it, transcending the limits of human space travel. Among the travelers is Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a widowed engineer who decides to leave behind his two children to join the voyage with the goal of saving humanity.

My take: It’s strange to think that it’s been almost ten years since Batman Begins (2005) came out, and British filmmaker Christopher Nolan went from »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Sets Its Premiere Date

15 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Quite frankly, the return of "American Horror Story" has come to signal fall (and, more specifically, Halloween) in a way that the changing leaves and seasonal airings of "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" used to. When "American Horror Story" comes back, you know things are about to get spooky. So it's with some jubilation that the return date for the series has been announced by FX (via Coming Soon): prepared to get scared all over again on October 8th at 10 pm. This year's entry, "American Horror Story: Freak Show," is supposedly the last for series mainstay Jessica Lange, which makes it even more unmissable.

Other things we know about this season: it's set in the fifties, in Juniper, Florida, a fabled locale for freak show performers (as we noted yesterday, an influential episode of "The X-Files" was also set here). The series follows one of the last remaining freak shows, »
