American Horror Story, Ep. 4.03, “Edward Mordrake (Part One)” movingly explores character emotions

1 hour ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show, Episode 3, “Edward Mordrake (Part One)”

Written by James Wong

Directed by Michael Uppendahl

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Et on FX

Despite having a premise that would appear to push the high camp of this season even further, “Edward Mordrake (Part 1)” features some of the most touching and genuinely emotional moments seen in the season thus far. The titular character (Wes Bentley) is an English nobleman and talented composer. While these biographical details would appear to put him on the path to success, the second face on the back of his head lands him a stint in an insane asylum, followed by a gig as a freak show performer, which ends abruptly when he kills his fellow cast members and hangs himself (a tale creepily recounted by Ethel). His ghost is rumored to haunt freak shows that perform on Halloween, which is when the episode takes place. »

American Horror Story: Freak Show Recap: “Edward Mordrake (Part 1)”

3 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show could have been better.  “Edward Mordrake (Part 1)” is clearly being used as a build-up to next week’s “Edward Mordrake (Part 2).”  We’ve got characters doing things that are in stark contrast to what previous episodes have established, there are loads of great scenes but few have satisfying payoffs and, overall, the first part of the coveted Halloween episode just isn’t all that scary.  But does that mean I didn’t enjoy it?  Absolutely not.  The entertainment value of American Horror Story: Freak Show is through the roof.  At this point, no logic or structural issue stands a chance against the outlandish fun that’s to be had with these characters in this setting.  Hit the jump for more in my American Horror Story: Freak Show recap. Wes Bentley’s Edward Mordrake is at the heart of this episode.  It’s »

The Disturbing True Story of American Horror Story's New Villain Edward Mordrake

13 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show is freaking us out, and we're only a few episodes in. The big villain this year is a killer clown named Twisty, but Wes Bentley is playing a creep of another sort. He appeared for the first time in this week's episode as Edward Mordrake, inspired by a real person who has been the subject of a very famous horror myth for centuries. "It was a man with two faces," creator Ryan Murphy described to Entertainment Weekly. "A normal face and then a face on the back of his head that would whisper evil things and force the forward-facing entity to commit horrible crimes." So far, it appears the character stays true to the myth, but we had to know how much of it is real - especially because so many of this season's freak show characters are based on real circus acts.

American Horror Story Freak Show episode 3 review: Edward Mordrake (Part 1)

13 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This season of American Horror Story has found the right balance between crazy ideas and their crazy execution...

This review contains spoilers.

4.3 Edward Mordrake (Part 1)

The cops are still sniffing around the camp, Jupiter is under a curfew as Twisty continues his bloody rampage, Meep is dead and buried with a pile of chicken heads to see him through to the great beyond, and once again the camp finds itself dealing with new arrivals. First Bette and Dot, then Dell and Desiree add to the dysfunction, and now Esmerelda the spiritualist (Emma Roberts) is there to liven things up a bit. But Esmerelda is more con artist than spiritualist, and she's working on a plot with her conspirator Stanley (Denis O'Hare) to enrich themselves by any means necessary. As if that wasn't enough, the ghost of a long-dead sideshow attraction turned demon is just looking for any excuse to crash the party. »

American Horror Story: Freak Show Recap: Truth or Scare

15 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In this week’s kickoff of American Horror Story: Freak Show’s Halloween two-parter, most of the superstitious carnies refused to perform on October 31, for fear that doing so would conjure up Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley), a two-faced bogeyman who, based on his description, you’d think would fit right in.

At the same time, a potentially even more terrifying situation was developing: With the arrival of faux fortuneteller Maggie Esmeralda (Emma Roberts), Dot suddenly had competition for Jimmy’s attention.

Here’s your rundown of all the treats (and tricks) that the episode held in store…

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap: Edward Mondrake Is Summoned; Dot Wants To Kill Bette

15 hours ago | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show opened in Philadelphia at the American Morbidity Museum where Dr. Mansfield (Denis O’Hare) is attempted to sell a fake Baby Sasquatch alongside his partner in crime Ms. Rothschild (Emma Roberts). The proprietor, though calling Mansfield out on his fake specimen and fake degrees from Harvard, suggests that should he find something authentic, the Morbidity Museum would pay handsomely for it, and directs him and Rothschild to a freak show.

'Ahs: Freak Show' Recap

At one of the last two freak shows in the country in Jupiter, Fla., Jimmy “Lobster Boy” Darling (Evan Peters) is mourning Meep’s death. Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson) suggest they dedicate the night’s show to his memory, but Ethel (Kathy Bates) informs them that no freak show performs on a Halloween.

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 3: 'Edward Mordrake, Pt. 1'

18 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's entirely appropriate that "American Horror Story: Freak Show" would have two episodes devoted to Halloween, that time of year when everyone gets to play pretend that they're whomever they dream of (or fear) being. As Jimmy says over Meep's grave, the dude loved Halloween. "It was the one day he felt like he would have been one of them... But he wasn't one of them. He was better," Jimmy said, adding that Meep would occasionally sneak the odd chicken head into some unsuspecting trick-or-treater's bag. What a rascal that Meep was. Poor Meep.

Tonight's episode introduced the last few main characters: Emma Roberts as the spiritualist/grifter Maggie Esmerelda; Denis O'Hare as Maggie's partner in crime, Stanley; and last but definitely not least, Wes Bentley as the two-faced monster Edward Mordrake. Mordrake is a dapper gentleman ghost with fine manners and many talents; he also has a demonic face »
