Much like Jerry McGuire had us at "Hello," American Horror Story: Hotel had us at Lady Gaga. The new installment of Ryan Murphy's FX anthology series premiered on Oct. 7 in a wash of mystery and macabre, and the inaugural episode was a joy for horror enthusiasts — not to mention Little Monsters. (Not to be confused with the actual little monsters/child cannibals in this episode). Keep reading for the biggest, weirdest, and craziest moments from Ahs: Hotel's premiere, and be forewarned: graphic content below. Things Are [...] »
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel.] Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s anthology horror series American Horror Story returned to FX Wednesday for its fifth chapter, set in a haunted hotel where guests don’t really get a check-out option. The premiere introduced an onslaught of new horrors, with something dark and disturbing waiting behind just about every door of Hotel Cortez, owned by the enigmatic Countess (Lady Gaga), who isn’t exactly a vampire but does have a thirst for human blood. Her lover Donovan (Matt Bomer) also enjoys slitting people’s throats to

American Horror Story: Hotel checks in for the franchise's fifth Ahs season tonight with the aptly titled premiere episode, 'Checking In.' The series' central star is gone and replaced with a pop star, a move some argue might sink the series after a polarizing fourth season. The first Ahs: Hotel episode 501 premieres tonight exclusively on FX and will be available to watch online free streaming on computers and mobile via the FX Now app as the hotel opens for business.
Scores of American Horror Story fans will tune in tonight and immediately wonder where Jessica Lange, the heart and soul of every previous Ahs season, is at. The unfortunate truth is that Lange has moved and left a void that will be nigh impossible to fill.
We love it when movie stars cross over into TV, which is why American Horror Story's four seasons have been so perfect thus far -- show creator Ryan Murphy's casting of Jessica Lange in a starring role opposite such venerable actresses as Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates and Frances Conroy was a stroke of genius. F/X's fourth season, American Horror Story: Freak Show, was released on DVD and Blu-ray this week and L.A.'s Hero Complex gallery held a special fan art show with more than 100 originals, prints and sculptures to celebrate. Check out some of what was displayed, below. The show runs through Oct. 18 and prints are available for purchase. The Feeding, Orioto Jessica, David Mahoney Twisty the Clown, Chris Oz...
This week on Scream Queens the plot thickens as questions are answered and more arise. In a hilarious opening poking fun at Taylor Swift’s “squad” of fans (what’s Ryan Murphy’s obsession with T-Swift anyway?) we find out every year Chanel gives gifts to girls she feels are dumpy and needy, so all of them, as a way […] »

Welcome to the Hotel Cortez. Centered in Los Angeles, where some guests check in, but they don't check out. Ryan Murphy and company have promised a dark, scary season five for American Horror Story: Hotel. And quite frankly, nothing is scarier than creepy children running around a hotel, which Ahs seems to be full of so far.
"Checking In" lays out the land of hotel, which is filled with drug addicts, creatures and employees who may or may not be dead. As strange things continue to happen in Room 64, the Countess feeds her hunger and greets the new hotel owner. Meanwhile, Detective John Lowe tries to track down a serial killer.
We’re just hours away from tonight’s premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel and Ryan Murphy is already thinking about the next iteration. He tweeted an invite to Lady Gaga to return for Season 6.

Say yes @ladygaga! — Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) October 6, 2015 No word yet if she said yes, but all eyes will clearly be on her tonight when she debuts as The Countess… »
Welcome to the Hotel Cortez. Your room is nearly ready... That's right, American Horror Story fans, it's almost time to check in to this year's Hotel! While you gather the necessary accessories required for tonight's first visit—we suggest a paper bag because the scares and sex will have you hyperventilating, for sure—let us fill you in on what to expect during your stay, with the help of Ahs masterminds Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. A View To Die For This season's exploits, the comings and goings of the inhabitants of Los Angeles' most intriguing hotel, harken back to season one's Murder House—especially for Murphy. "I think it's very similar to »
Are you obsessed with Scream Queens yet? The show is scarily good, and one of the best things about it has to be the sassy, slightly evil sorority president Chanel Oberlin, who is expertly portrayed by Emma Roberts. Back in August before the show's premiere, creator Ryan Murphy talked about his inspiration for the queen bee character and credited much of it to the writer of a viral sorority email that made the rounds in 2013, saying, "It was jaw dropping, the language that this particular young woman used. She was pretty much a despicable person. And we were interested in mirroring that idea, but, unlike that girl, who apologized, sort of bringing our queen bee character to some sort of awareness about her behavior and why she is doing these things." In case you forgot about the now-infamous letter, it was written by the chair of a sorority at the »

**Trigger warning for survivors of sexual assault – episode contains a graphic rape scene.**
American Horror Story has always represented co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk at their most luridly unrestrained, but the premiere of this year’s installment, subtitled Hotel, is a true deluge of dark decadence, even by their standards.
The only hour made available for critics (an out-of-character move for FX, and perhaps one consequence of Murphy and Falchuk’s very busy schedule this year), it’s a sprawling, over-stimulating smorgasbord of an episode, so consumed with introducing the show’s latest house of horrors, and all its ghoulish inhabitants, that in its entire 62 minutes it barely ever comes up for air. The effect is both exciting, given that American Horror Story‘s knack for highly visual storytelling has never been more evident, and a tad exhausting. Last season took viewers inside an actual freak show, »

When it comes to building allure around high profile actors in mysterious roles, Ryan Murphy has got any other showrunner beat. So it should come as no surprise that the main reason curious viewers will “check in” to “American Horror Story: Hotel” is to see Lady Gaga in all her bloody glory. They won’t be disappointed. In the first season of the anthology horror series not to feature Jessica Lange as a leading lady, Lady Gaga‘s introduction is perfectly timed to replace what would have otherwise been a gaping casting hole. There is a feeling that Kathy Bates as the jaded. »

"American Horror Story: Hotel" has drawn hordes of fans to the real hotel on which the show is based. 'Ahs' die-hards are flocking to Stay on Main hotel in downtown L.A. ... the site of a grisly death in 2013 when it was called the Cecil Hotel. Elisa Lam was found dead in the hotel's water tank after the hotel received complaints the water tasted funny. Her death was ruled an accidental drowning, but »

Scream Queens, Season 1, Episode 4, “Haunted House”
Directed by Bradley Buecker
Airs on Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox
Is Scream Queens scary? Furthermore, does it even want to be? After weeks of establishing the characters and brutally murdering more than a handful, the time has come to finally assess the camp/horror mash-up in the area that counts: Is it at all horrifying for the viewers to watch at home? After “Haunted House”, the beginning of a Halloween trilogy spanning three episodes, the answer is a definite yes. Putting aside the obsession with Chanel Oberlin (who remains insufferable) and a few side adventures (that remain mostly pointless), the central mystery kicks into full gear this week and brings a heaping dose of actual scares along with the extra intrigue. Upending cultural expectations of scary stories or mocking their tropes is one thing, »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Tuesday's episode of Scream Queens, "Haunted House."] Halloween, naturally, provides the perfect backdrop for the horror-comedy of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan’s new Fox anthology series Scream Queens. Tuesday's episode, as well as next week’s “Pumpkin Patch,” celebrate the holiday to the fullest — complete with a murder or two. Continuing their adventures as amateur detectives, Grace (Skyler Samuels) and Pete (Diego Boneta) tracked down one of the “Waterfalls”-loving girls from the bathroom of horrors in 1995. They found an old, unstable woman living in a trailer, who

Gleeks and Lea Michele fans everywhere…buckle up. Tonight's Scream Queens episode, "Chanel-o-Ween," is not for the faint of heart, and based on our wholly scientific experiment, you will burn roughly 90,000 calories laughing until you cry, and shrieking in terror. The episode, which is the first of three Halloween episode, is both hilarious and shocking (as evidenced by this Taylor Swift-inspired open!), and Lea's Hester character, now going by "Chanel Number Six," will say and do things her TV alter ego Rachel Berry wouldn't dream of. It's all just so...dirrrrrtyyyyy. And wrong. And hilarious. And proof that Scream Queens creator Ryan Murphy is a genius when it comes to taking »
We don’t know about you guys, and this is no slight on Lady Gaga, but it seems as if nearly the entire ad campaign for “American Horror Story: Hotel” has been built around her. Let’s hope she can deliver as… Continue Reading →
