First look images from Scream Queens

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We saw a trio of posters last week, and now Entertainment Weekly has debuted four first look images from Scream Queens, the upcoming horror-comedy anthology series from Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan

“Brad and Ian and I, all three of us, were always obsessed with the ’80s/early ’90s slasher genre that was always about young people and always about coming of age,” states Murphy. “So we loved that and we decided to sort of be inspired by that idea. That was sort of the impetus of it. It’s sort of the idea of what would happen if you put something like Heathers meets Friday the 13th to those genre pictures like Massacre on Sorority Row, that early-to-late ’80s exploitation horror thing. I really like the idea of doing a comedy and doing sort of anthological comedy. What I love about it is when it’s funny, »

American Horror Story: Hotel Adds Evan Peters

24 April 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The next season of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story is bumping up its roster of cast members to include another familiar face. While the content, tone and style of its fifth season – titled American Horror Story: Hotel – will strike out into new territory, the cast is turning into somewhat of a reunion. The latest to sign up is Evan Peters, whose downright creepy performances throughout the show’s run are a major highlight.

Peters was announced via Murphy’s Twitter, and the brief teaser message suggests he may take a backseat for a smaller supporting role, or perhaps even just a guest turn. Alongside another returning Ahs stalwart, Sarah Paulson, Peters will now have appeared in every single season of the FX anthology show. At this time, there’s no details on who it is he’s expected to play, but due to the format of the series he »

Duh: Evan Peters is Joining American Horror Story: Hotel

24 April 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Along with Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters has been in every single iteration of American Horror Story, so it's only natural that he would join them for the fifth season, Hotel. He joins a cast that includes Paulson, Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Chloë Sevigny, and Matthew Bomer. (Jessica Lange, as we all know, bowed out.) On Friday, Ryan Murphy tweeted, "Evan Peters will be waiting for you in Room 64," which for now sounds ominous (or sexy?), but means little. »

Evan Peters Returning for American Horror Story: Hotel

24 April 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

If you thought all the vacancies in American Horror Story: Hotel might be taken up, think again. Evan Peters is the latest American Horror Story alum to join the cast of the FX series’ upcoming fifth season. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy announced the news on Twitter earlier today. “This season, Evan Peters will be waiting for you in Room 64,” Murphy wrote. Aside from Murphy’s tweet, which doesn’t really provide any specific details, nothing is yet known about the character that Peters will be playing, and since he’s played so many different roles on the anthology series throughout the years, it’d probably be hard to guess. Peters went from playing the villainous Tate in Season 1 of the show to being a heroic co-lead in Asylum, and he then portrayed Kyle, a Frankenstein’s Monster-like character, in American Horror Story‘s third season, Coven, before taking on the role of Jimmy Darling, »

Ryan Murphy’s upcoming anthology horror, Scream Queens, has operated thus far under the cover of darkness. It’s not hard to see why, either. Everything Murphy puts his hand to turns to gold and Fox wants to keep a lid on his next bout of genius. From Glee to American Horror Story his unique approach to television narratives is refreshingly lapped up by appreciative audiences and critics. And now, Murphy has opened up about some of the campus comedy’s inner workings, along with revealing the first official photos from the show.

Thus far, we’ve only been clued in to the vague outline of the series: a campus-set horror comedy about a series of killings. In a new interview, Murphy has gone one step further, describing it as a “real murder mystery whodunit” in the vein of “Heathers meets Friday the 13th.” He goes »
