'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 3: 'Edward Mordrake, Pt. 2'

29 October 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Although there were some serious let-downs in this week's episode of "American Horror Story: Freak Show," it serves as a reminder of just how far the show runners are willing to push past the boundaries of taste and sanity on basic cable. Of course, the Grand Guignol gore and straight-up weirdness is why most of us watch it, so kudos to everyone involved for making this episode the stuff of nightmares.

Spoilers start here. Let's get this show on the road.

Taking Off the Masks

This week's episode caps off, so to speak, the story of Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley) and solves the mystery of who he was looking to take with him into the greenish fog. Edward, as directed by the demonic face on the back of his head, continues peppering each of the performers with questions about their deepest secrets and darkest shames, which is a cool narrative »

29 October 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Though his long-standing stint as Barney Stinson on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother has ended, Neil Patrick Harris’ excursion into other TV realms is just beginning, and American Horror Story: Freak Show fans may be excited by the news that Harris and his husband, fellow actor David Burtka, will guest star on Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology show later this season.

TVLine reports that Harris will guest star in the 11th and 12th episodes of FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show, while Burtka will appear in the season finale. Harris will play a “chameleon salesman”, with Burtka set to partake in a storyline involving Jessica Lange’s Elsa Mars.

“Season 4, Freak Show, is set in 1950s Juniper, Fl, and centers around one of the last remaining freak shows of the time.

Who Is Twisty the Clown? Get To Know the Creepiest Villain of American Horror Story: Freak Show

29 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

There’s no doubting that the new season of American Horror Story is the most frightening and perverse yet. While a number of creator Ryan Murphy’s actors — Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters — have returned, the fourth iteration of the series has also featured a number of new faces. Among them are newcomer Finn Wittrock as the devilish man-child, Dandy Motts, Michael Chiklis as the freak show’s resident strong man, and Wes Bentley as the two-faced Edward Mordrake. While all three have made their own impact on Freak Show, none of them have been more severe than Twisty the Clown played by John Carroll Lynch.

“It’s great to play a character that is so starkly drawn, and it’s really fun to be a bad guy,” Lynch tells La Times. “In this case I really like that Ryan and the writers »

‘American Horror Story: Freakshow – Episode 2′ Review

28 October 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Michael Chiklis, Denis O’Hare, Even Peters, Emma Roberts, Minn Wittrock, John Carroll Lunch, Patti Labelle | Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk

This show has officially ruined other TV shows for me.

A curfew is now in effect in the little town of Jupiter after one of their detectives (i.e. the one killed by Jimmy and the others last episode) has gone missing, meaning the freak show can’t play evenings any more. Enter Dell Toledo, a strong man from New York who has history with Ethel, and his three breasted hermaphrodite wife Desiree (yup, I kept thinking of Total Recall too), who turn up to ask Elsa for a job. Initially she makes him head of security but soon realises she’s made a mistake when he organises a matinee against her permission with the surprisingly talented »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: Batman vs. Superman vs. Captain America vs. Iron Man

27 October 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Two weeks ago, in the span of about 24 hours, the universe of superhero movies rapidly expanded in a series of bizarre new directions. First came news that Marvel was actively considering making the next Captain America movie into the next Iron Man movie, in a story arc that would cull material from the mid-2000s mega-crossover "Civil War." Coincidentally or probably not, Warner Bros. chose that precise cultural moment to announce that they were planning a whole bunch of DC superhero movies. Wonder Woman? Aquaman? Cyborg? Check, check, checkeroo! Several readers wrote in with their own thoughts on the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes. »

22 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | 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.

FX's American Horror Story: Freak Show continues tonight with the all-new episode 'Edward Mordrake: Part 1,' the first half of a two-part story that revolves around a Halloween tradition the carnies are not at all interested in breaking.

Emma Roberts will finally make her Freak Show debut tonight as Maggie Esmerelda, a fortuneteller who might not be who she claims to be. One thing she will be is the apple of Jimmy's eye, so I don't think it will take long for Jimmy to start to put the moves on her, lobster hands and all.

For the last couple of years, American Horror Story has been one of the most frequently recommended TV shows from my friends, and like most TV trends I blissfully ignored it so I can sink yet more time into Civilisation V and nuking Ghandi because, well, it’s Ghandi. Eventually though it got enough of my attention through the power of the internet and I decided to give this season a try.

Two hours later and I’ve watched the first two still unreleased episodes of season 4 (I love reviewing things, I really do) and you better believe I’m watching the rest. Episode two’s review will follow, but I honestly couldn’t wait to write about episode one. »

American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 2 Review

Alice Rush reviews episode two of American Horror Story: Freak Show….

This week on Freak Show saw some pretty horrifying scenes unfold as new characters were introduced and the heat was turned up. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon was back at the director’s helm and so we were treated to his signature stylised visual style as well as a mixture of disturbing music and sound effects. It felt like a return to the disconcerting setting of Murder House and Asylum but with its own almost child-like twist as the aesthetics of the circus theme are pulled apart and examined in a beautifully terrifying way.

The main drama this week was fitted in the arrival of Del and Desiree, Michael Chiklis and Angela Bassett respectively, as a classic circus strong man and his more unique triple breasted hermaphrodite wife. We were also treated to the first flashbacks of the season this episode, a signature of American Horror Story, »

American Horror Story, Ep. 4.02: “Massacres and Matinees” proves the fun of camp

16 October 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

American Horror Story, Season 4, Episode 2: “Massacres and Matinees”

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

Written by Tim Minear

Airs Wednesdays at 10:00 Pm Et on FX

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are going for pure camp in the current season of American Horror Story, and it’s working quite well.

Despite the somewhat stately pace of the season premiere “Monsters Among Us,” the sheer inanity of the action happening onscreen created an off-the-wall vibe. Whether it was the special talents afforded by Jimmy’s syndactyly, Ethel’s beard and bizarre accent, or Elsa singing a song that wasn’t released until 20 years after the show’s setting, Murphy and Falchuk made it clear that, in true “freak show” fashion, spectacle would be given precedent over logic. In this week’s “Massacres and Matinees,” the bonkers factor is raised a notch, as is the fun.

The inane feel continues to work well for the show, »

American Horror Story Freak Show episode 2 review: Massacres And Matinees

16 October 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sarah Paulson truly shines in Freak Show, a series that has a great deal else to recommend it, too...

This review contains spoilers.

4.2 Massacres And Matinees

Sarah Paulson is phenomenal. She's been a bit of a workman over the years, putting in solid performances in thankless roles like that of Cordelia Foxx in Coven, but this season she's really showing off what she can do by taking on a very difficult bit of work: playing two roles at once. Bette and Dot are similar enough in look, but completely different in personality, and not only does Paulson have to act out both of them, she has to make it look convincing when playing against herself. Plus, she's got a very good singing voice.

Paulson's expressions and visual tics are really well thought-out. Bette and Dot are two different people who share the same body, and they may be twins, but »

Ahs Freak Show Episode 2 Massacres and Matinees Review

16 October 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

This week the freaks are prime suspects in Twistys murder spree. It certainly doesnt help that they killed the lead detective in the murder of Bette and Dots mother. Now the heat is on and the police have set a curfew in town till the killer is caught taking away all of Elsas customers. Two new characters were introduced this week The Strongman Dell Toledo (played by Michael Chiklis) and Desiree Dupree (Angela Bassett) as a hermaphrodite with three titties lady parts and a dingaling. Ethel isnt very happy to see Dell turns out Dell is Jimmys biodad. Dell tried to kill a colicky Jimmy as a baby but Ethel pulled a gun on him and kicked him out. Surely theres no bad blood after all these years. »

American Horror Story: Freak Show Recap: “Massacres and Matinees”

15 October 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show had the benefit of the shock and awe that comes with introducing viewers to a new vibrant location and fresh crop of curious characters, but now that the initial thrill is long gone, the question is, can Freak Show hold up?  Thanks to the highly intriguing character layers and fascinatingly bizarre scenarios introduced in the season’s second episode, “Massacres and Matinees,” the answer is a resounding yes.  Hit the jump for more on the wealth of mind-blowing oddities in my American Horror Story: Freak Show recap. This time around, a good deal of the episode focuses on Jimmy.  The guy was a rather abrasive jerk all throughout “Monsters Among Us.”  Here, however, we get some more appealing layers to the character.  The show doesn’t do a complete turnaround and force-feed the viewer schlocky scenes of Jimmy being a standup citizen, »
