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

6 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 is 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' Recap, Episode 3: 'Edward Mordrake, Pt. 1'

11 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 »

6 Secrets We Learned From American Horror Story's Costume Designer

18 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When it comes to fabulous costumes, American Horror Story has no shortage of iconic looks. While seasons one and two had their fair share of beautiful outfits, Lou Eyrich, the show's resident costume designer, really hit her stride in season three, better known as Coven. "Wear something black," Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange) says as she welcomes the newest group of young witches, and everyone talked about Madison Montgomery (Emma Roberts) in that red dress, saying "Surprise, b*tch." Everyone talked even more about Myrtle Snow (Frances Conroy) burning at the stake in another red dress, screaming, "Balenciaga!" And that's just the tip of the iceberg, which led to an Emmy win for best costumes. To celebrate the release of American Horror Story: Coven on DVD and Blu-ray, we recently joined a group interview with Eyrich about her creative process, during which she revealed exciting tidbits about Coven and Freak Show. »

It's a special top ten day. List mania all day long...

10 Renée has reemerged again but there's still no firm word on future movies other than The Whole Truth with Keanu Reeves, directed by Courtney Hunt (Frozen River) which is due next year supposedly

09 Sarah Paulson looks Ahmazing

08 Long rectangular table at these events are terrible because you only get to talk to a couple of people except when everyone is milling about. 

07 If you squint really hard you can pretend Sarah & Renée are non-identical siamese sisters they're so squinched together...

06 Bet you anything they talked about American Horror Story - weird that Ryan Murphy hasn't asked the Zeéeeee to do it? (Although his tastes do run a little more 1980s/1990s than 1990s/2000s as actresses go.)

05 Everyone in this photo has major trophies except for Sarah Paulson and that ain't right!

Guillermo Díaz is a really nice guy—he really is. But the actor has us a little worried. Not only does he play a tormented, face-licking ex-assassin on Scandal, but he now reveals his dream role. "I would love to do more horror films," Díaz says in the new issue of FourTwoNine magazine. "I'm really hoping something great in that genre will come along. I want to be the bad guy. I want to be the killer. I would love to do something with clowns. Some sort of demented clown." News: Clown club bashes American Horror Story for its clown portrayal Paging, Ryan Murphy!

21 October 2014 11:13 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

What began as a shortened episode to bridge the gap between episodes 2 and 4 turned into a full-blown discussion of sports, television, and the world of social media. Join co-hosts Randy Dankievitch and Sean Colletti as they lament the death of real human activism (after their weekly dose of bashing NBC and Ryan Murphy, in no particular order), discuss whether The Walking Dead is turning into a good show before our eyes, and then pay our respects to Star City’s fallen vigilante assassin. Then the guys nerd out on some video games and basketball, and prepare your ear tongues for what’s coming your way later this week. In other words, it’s a full-length, off-day, unorganized episode of The Mid-Season Replacements – enjoy!

‘American Horror Story: Freakshow – Episode 1′ Review

21 October 2014 4:59 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

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 duo developing comedy horror anthology Scream Queens

21 October 2014 3:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What happens when you cross American Horror Story with Glee? You’d get Fox’s new comedy Scream Queens

Here’s one that sounds like it came from an end-of-week meeting where everyone at Fox picked a popular TV element out of a hat, glued them together on an official memo, called it a job done and headed home for the weekend.

We’re talking about Scream Queens – Fox’s new anthology horror/teen comedy series.

When you dig a little deeper though, it seems that this idea might be a little less off-the-wall than it sounds. It’s brought to us by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (pictured) – two of the very versatile chaps behind creating both Glee and American Horror Story. Ian Brennan, from the Glee side of the fence, is involved too.

Murphy has said that “we hope to create a whole new genre – comedy-horror – and the »

"Glee," Ahs Creator Plans "Scream Queens"

20 October 2014 7:39 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Once "Glee" wraps up, show creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are sticking with Fox for another project. The network has given the pair a straight-to-series, fifteen episode order for the comedy-horror anthology "Scream Queens".

Like Murphy's "American Horror Story" on FX, completely new settings and storylines will be featured in each season of the anthology series. One commonality though is that each season will revolve around two female leads.

The first season is set on a college campus rocked by a series of murders. Casting is already underway for the two women and ten other key supporting roles.

20th Century Fox Television will produce the project which will premiere around this time next year. Murphy, Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Dante Di Loreto will executive produce.

Sleepy Hollow Recap: Witches Be Crazy

20 October 2014 6:59 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

If there’s one lesson to take away from this week’s Sleepy Hollow, it’s that everyone should know CPR — especially if you’re a charter member of Team Wtf.

If there’s a second lesson to take away from this week’s episode, it’s that you really don’t want to mess with Katrina, because redhead will mess you up, lie about it for centuries and then claim the moral high ground when confronted.

In between, there’s Jenny, Hawley, Jenny on Hawley (mrrow), a tasty bit of Ichabod’s back story and one truly unfortunate Revolutionary War re-enactor. »

Gotham Recap: A Secret Spilled, an Agenda Revealed and a Bossy Bruce

This week on Fox’s Gotham, Jim Gordon’s non-murderous secret got out, Fish Mooney’s plan for her comely chanteuse became evident and Master Bruce did some nifty detective work.

On the heels of what I felt was a stronger episode, “Arkham,” this week’s hour felt flat to me. And I’m starting to ask myself why this show isn’t quite clicking for me, several weeks in.

Sure, we had some plot movement. In a bid to cement a bigger role with Maroni, Penguin came clean about his real name and criminal roots in the Fish via Falcone organization. »

Have 'The Walking Dead' fans become numb to all the atrocities?

Have “The Walking Dead” fans become numb to all the atrocities? "'The Walking Dead' has always lived in uncharted television territory, and you can’t say that viewers weren’t warned that this season was determined to go even further beyond Thunderdome,” says Jeff Labrecque, adding: "But is it too far? And is 'The Walking Dead' getting a free pass because its explicit depictions of violence are framed within a zombiefied landscape?” “The Real World" Season 30 is going with a "Skeletons” format The Chicago-set "Real World: Skeletons" will feature "skeletons" from the housemates’ past, who move in to "drum up secrets and dark memories.” “Gossip Girl’s” Penn Badgley will romance Mary-Louise Parker on NBC’s “The Slap” He’ll play her much-younger boyfriend on the NBC miniseries about a   slap gone wrong.

Fox Orders Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens

20 October 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Fox is loving Ryan Murphy still, hence why they ordered a new series by him. Scream Queens will be following the steps of American Horror Story. The show will cover a new story line each season, with the first one set to be about a college dealing with murders. It will be a dark comedy that will be put out by Ryan and his team of masterminds of their soon to be over Glee days, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Dante Di Loreto. Here is what he had to say about his new show.

I knew I wanted to work with Brad and Ian again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing Scream Queens. We hope to create a whole new genre – comedy-horror – and the idea is for every season to revolve around two female leads. We’ve already begun a nationwide search for those women, as well as 10 other supporting roles, »

Fox Moving Forward with Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens TV Series

20 October 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Students on a college campus are stalked by a malicious murderer: horror film fans have seen this setup in many films like Final Exam, Scream 2, and Urban Legend, but we’ve never seen Ryan Murphy’s take on this story setup. That will change by next year, though, as the American Horror Story co-creator is moving forward on a university-set horror-comedy series called Scream Queens for Fox.

Set for a fall 2015 premiere, the first season of Scream Queens will consist of 15 one hour-long episodes. Similar to the American Horror Story structure, Scream Queens will tell a different story in a new environment each season.

Press release via Yahoo: “Los Angeles (Reuters) – Fox has ordered anthology series “Scream Queens” from the creator of ‘Glee” and “American Horror Story,” the U.S. television network said on Monday, as broadcast TV takes a cue from a format largely successful on cable networks. »

Comedy-Horror Anthology Series Scream Queens On The Way From Glee Creators

20 October 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s nothing stopping producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk in their quest for complete domination of the alternative TV docket. The pair first made waves when they introduced the world to the destructive lives of plastic surgeons in Nip/Tuck before they redefined serial television with the hugely popular American Horror Story for FX.

For their mainstream musical venture at Fox, the duo rounded out their “sound” by bringing in producer Ian Brennan for teen comedy Glee. With that show currently tying up its final season, Fox isn’t letting their winning trio slip through their fingers, as they’ve just given Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan’s next project, Scream Queens, a 15-episode straight-to-series order.

Slated to be a comedy-horror anthology, the show will debut in fall 2015 and revolve around a similar framework to American Horror Story. Each season will begin with a brand new story, set in new locations with entirely different characters. »
