American Horror Story Freak Show episode 6 review: Bullseye

13 November 2014 11:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Freak Show is starting to pick up momentum, giving its excellent cast more to work with. Here's Ron's review...

This review contains spoilers.

4.6 Bullseye

One of the show's better visual moments this season involves the classic sideshow stunt, the wheel of death. You strap someone in, spin the wheel, and then you throw knives at that person, usually getting close to the head and genitals, but never actually injuring the person. Since this is American Horror Story, that wheel becomes more than just a show. It's a warning, and when the knife thrower is an enraged Elsa Mars, well... accidents happen. Expected accidents happen, that is.

However, just because the knifing of Paul is foreshadowed well—he's Elsa's secret lover, he doesn't trust her as far as the twins go, he's got a girlfriend back in town—doesn't mean it's still not effective when it's actually executed. It's a dizzyingly »

American Horror Story, Ep. 4.06: “Bullseye” develops Elsa and Dandy

13 November 2014 4:47 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show, Season 4, Episode 6: “Bullseye”

Written by John J. Gray

Directed by Howard Deutch

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Et on FX

American Horror Story: Freak Show hasn’t had the slightest bit of subtlety when it’s  come to conveying its themes and images, and this week’s episode, “Bullseye”, is no different. Though this heavy-handed dramatic approach has yielded uneven emotional results, “Bullseye” makes it work through its successful combination of shocking imagery and character development, as well as its clever connections between seemingly disparate elements.

First and foremost in “Bullseye” is Elsa, who is immediately framed as the episode’s center through her voiceover in the cold open. As she rants about the importance of fate and destiny, a wheel spins in the background, thus using a fairly obvious visual metaphor to illustrate her views. While the scene seems to be insulting the viewer »

Review: True Blood: The Complete Seventh Season

9 November 2014 9:26 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

All things come to an end and the true death arrived for HBO’s True Blood earlier this year. This week, HBO Home Entertainment offers up The Complete Seventh Season along with a mammoth complete series box set. In looking back on the series, it probably hung around a little longer than necessary, especially as things spiraled from over-the-top to insane crazy after series creator Alan Ball left.

The seventy episodes veered further and further from Charlaine Harris’s The Southern Vampire Mysteries novels and even she wrapped up her prose stories recognizing the time had come.

Bon Temps is under attack as things open up, picking up where season six dropped us. The Hep V Vampires are running amuck as many of our favorite supporting characters have been threatened. Pam continues her hunt for Eric leaving Sookie as the calming voice of reason and she’s not feeling all that steady. »

American Horror Story Freak Show episode 4 review: Edward Mordrake (Part 2)

3 November 2014 11:47 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

American Horror Story continues to be provocative, depraved and unsettling. It's fantastic stuff, says Ron...

This review contains spoilers.

4.4 Edward Mordrake (Part 2)

One of my hopes for this season of American Horror Story is that it wouldn't be focused on the usual cast members. Sure, I'm always game for Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates to square off with one another, but given that Freak Show has a great deal of participation from actual sideshow-type performers, I really wanted to see them be something other than colour. I'm aware that these people were cast primarily for their differences, to fit in with a proper freak show atmosphere, but I would hope that when given a chance, they could act well, too. Considering the focus of Edward Mordrake Part 2, that ability could make or break the episode.

Fortunately, the show has an ace in the hole in the form of Mat Fraser, »

American Horror Story, Ep. 4.04, “Edward Mordrake (Part Two)” takes a nasty turn

30 October 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show, Episode 4, “Edward Mordrake (Part Two)”

Written by Jennifer Salt

Directed by Howard Deutch

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Et on FX

American Horror Story: Freak Show has been making campy nods towards a variety of horror cliches throughout the season’s first three episodes, and “Edward Mordrake (Part Two)” points towards a new subset of the genre—torture porn. Even the most gruesome moments of the previous episodes carry a comic, winking touch to them that keeps them light (without allowing for a few chills). However, in “(Part Two),” the humor is replaced by a noticeably sadistic streak that’s neither as fun nor as scary as the previous tone.

The contrast is starkest in the Twisty and Dandy scenes. Whereas the Twisty segments in the first three episodes focus primarily on his hunts for victims, his scenes this week are exclusively about his torture of victims. »

Movie Moments: Proclamations of Love through the Medium of Song

21 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

God Help the Girl is a tale of love and despair through the medium of song and dance, starring Emily Brown and Olly Alexander. Written and directed by Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch, the film in part follows Alexander’s bewitched James and his adoration of Eve (Browning,) a troubled, medicated songwriter.

To celebrate the film’s release we take a look at some of the best proclamations of love via the magical form of song in cinema.

Pretty in Pink: Try a Little Tenderness Dir. Howard Deutch, 1986

Admittedly this sequence is mimed, but mimed to Otis Redding and with such panache that Jon Cryer’s Duckie is easily forgiven. Besotted with his best friend and sadly not as bold with his feelings as he is with his sense of fashion, Duckie’s extravagant routine is as a means of impressing his audience; a bewildered Andie (Molly Ringwald)and the quietly impressed Iona. »

Howard Deutch on John Hughes, Shooting Sex Scenes, and How Pretty in Pink Prepared Him for True Blood

18 August 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Note: This interview with Howard Deutch contains spoilers through the penultimate episode of True Blood. Don’t click through until you’ve caught up.The penultimate episode of True Blood seemed to close out a number of important story lines and teed things up nicely for the finale. To find out more about last night's eventful hour, as well as to satisfy our endless need to discuss Pretty in Pink and other things John Hughes, we called up director Howard Deutch, who has helmed many a True Blood episode, including this one. He chatted with us about the rekindled Jessica-Hoyt relationship, how his films Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful prepared him for the show's love triangles, and not letting go on True Blood. You directed three pivotal sex scenes this season: the Eric-Jason sex dream, the Lafayette-Jason encounter at the party, and then, of course, the reunion between Hoyt and Jessica. »

True Blood, Ep. 7.09, “Love is to Die” stages the story for series’s end

18 August 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

True Blood, Season 7, Episode 9, “Love is to Die”

Written by Brian Buckner

Directed by Howard Deutch

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO

On this week’s True Blood, Jessica runs to Hoyt for comfort, Brigette spends the night with Jason, Pam gives Sarah a makeover, and Eric negotiates the peace between Sookie and Bill.

With only one episode left in the series, True Blood makes it clear in “Love is to Die” that it’s ready for the end. Couples are splitting up, reuniting, or just beginning, people are leaving town, and all of this season’s story threads are being whittled down in a promising and reassuring way–it’s unlikely the series finale will be disappointing after a season this good.

“Love is to Die” is mostly a preparation for the end, and it’s a good episode despite very little actually happening (it’s mostly a »

'True Blood' star Nelsan Ellis talks Lafayette's new romance

21 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of True Blood, “Lost Cause,” stop reading now (or, at least read our full recap first). We spoke with Nelsan Ellis, who plays fan favorite Lafayette, about his second favorite scene of the series—when Lafayette asks Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) if she really knows James (Nathan Parsons), and why it’s so unimaginable that he would want a piece of happiness, too. (His favorite Lafayette moment, for the record, remains the AIDs burger scene from season 1.) 

Was Lafayette’s speech to Jessica all scripted?

I didn’t add a thing. »
