Hey Creeps! Did you fiendish ghouls check out the 2014 reboot of proto-slasher classic  The Town That Dreaded Sundown? Let me tell ya, that fright flick was the gruesome goods!   And ‘cuz I dug the flick so damn much, I was pleased as poison punch to have the opportunity to put the screws to the film’s die-rector, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon!

Famous Monsters. With all of the reboot/remake/sequel action goin’ on in the horror biz, were you nervous to do a new take on  such a cult classic flick?

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. It wasn’t a remake, so I wasn’t scared. It was an original film that paid homage to Charles E. Pierce’s classic. I wasn’t trying to remake it, it was a character as important a character as anyone else in the story. It was a movie about a town defined by a movie. It wasn’t »

Supermodel Naomi Campbell Checks Into American Horror Story: Hotel

24 July 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Supermodel and actress Naomi Campbell has joined the burgeoning cast of American Horror Story: Hotel in a multi-episode part.

News come by way of TV Line, who reports that Campbell’s role will be that of a fashion editor who will seemingly go “head to head” with Lady Gaga. Entering its fifth season, Ryan Murphy’s dark and twisted anthology series has only grown in popularity with each new chapter, and the fact that it has the clout to attract true star power in the form of Gaga and Campbell is a testimony to its success on FX.

What will really get fans intrigued, though, is that Campbell’s editor will reportedly “pay the ultimate price for her critiques,” and many of her scenes – due to begin filming next week – will include both Gaga and series veteran Angela Bassett. In a post via Twitter, Campbell expressed her excitement about joining the fray. »

Another American Horror Story alum has signed on for the show’s newest season, Hotel, and Ryan Murphy wasn’t even the one to tweet out this casting announcement. According to EW.com (and then seemingly confirmed by the show’s Twitter), Ahs veteran Lily Rabe will appear in the latest season of the horror anthology series, playing a character that will be reportedly be a serial killer (because every season of American Horror Story needs at least one of those).

The title of Ryan Murphy’s new horror comedy series “Scream Queens” just may refer to the four girls at the center of the show, and a new series of videos introduces audiences to the Chanels. Emma Roberts stars as Chanel Oberlin, who’s such a Queen Bee that she named her clique and her three best friends after herself. “She’s a bitch, for lack of a better word,” Roberts said in her video. She’s flanked by Chanel #2, played by Ariana Grande, who’s described by the star as “the safest, least daring one of the group,” Chanel #3, played by newcomer Billie. »

Introducing the Chanels: The Mean Girls of Scream Queens

22 July 2015 7:03 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Scream Queens debuts in September, it'll introduce a fresh brand of hell to college Greek life with the ladies of Kappa Kappa Tau. They're called the Chanels, after their "bitch" of a tyrant, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts), whom we get a closer look at in a new series of character profiles. As Roberts puts it lightly, she's not exactly "warm and fuzzy." We also meet the rest of her mean-girl clique, starting with Ariana Grande's Chanel No. 2. Creator Ryan Murphy felt Grande might enjoy the role because she's into all that "messed-up horror, Gothic, crazy, weird stuff." And then there's Chanel Nos. 3 and 5 (the fate, or even existence, of Chanel No. 4 remains a mystery). They're the Gretchen and Karen of the group, played by Billie Lourd and Abigail Breslin, just two of the many "super-good-looking and chill" sociopaths you'll presumably love to hate this fall. »

Meet the Chanels, The Scene-Stealing Stars of ‘Scream Queens’

21 July 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Allow us to introduce you to the Chanels, the similarly named mean girls at the center of executive producer Ryan Murphy’s new horror series on Fox, “Scream Queens” — come fall, you’ll be dying to be part of their clique.

Emma Roberts stars as Chanel Oberlin, the queen bee of Kappa Kappa Tau. “She isn’t exactly the nicest person, definitely not warm and fuzzy,” says Roberts. “She’s a b—-, for lack of a better word.” Never fear, though, Roberts promises there’s still plenty of humor in store. “‘Scream Queens’ is horror, but it’s a dark comedy,” she adds. “We were surprised by how funny the script is.”

Ariana Grande plays sorority sister Chanel #2. “She’s a loyal friend… she’s the most timid of the group,” says Grande. “She might be the safest, least daring one of the group.”

Contemporary Costumes from ‘Mindy Project,’ ‘Gotham’ Feted by Fidm, TV Academy

19 July 2015 2:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The breadth of costumes displayed from 24 popular television shows at the Television Academy and Fidm’s ninth annual “Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design” exhibition launch on Saturday seemed to visibly depict exactly why a crucial change to the 2015 Emmy costume categories — grouping work by period rather than show format — was implemented.

“There were always two categories; we just shifted from genre to costume type,” said the Television Academy’s Costume Design & Supervision Peer Group governor Sue Bub of the new groupings, which will recognize outstanding costumes in “period/fantasy” and “contemporary” categories, rather than under “series” and “miniseries/movie” umbrellas. Instituted so as to give contemporary shows “a more balanced opportunity and playing field” in an arena populated by a growing number of period pieces, Bub was happily able to decree, “There will be at least one contemporary show that will win an Emmy this year.”
