American Horror Story Freak Show episode 9 review: Tupperware Party Massacre

11 December 2014 11:10 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

American Horror Story villain Dandy is so wildly entertaining, it's almost a distraction from the rest of the show...

This review contains spoilers.

4.9 Tupperware Party Massacre

As American Horror Story gains traction and propels itself towards a season finale like an out-of-control carnival ride, it feels as though there's a certain loss of poise. Perhaps it's due to the fact that our hero, Jimmy, is an aimless drunk who is distracted by grief and the gigantic bosoms of the side show's new fat lady. Perhaps that's due to the fact that Stanley and Elsa's complicated plot to capture and decapitate the twins continues to run into complications. Perhaps it's due to the fact that the show's biggest villain, Dandy, is so wildly entertaining that it's distracting from the rest of the show.

After opening up with Twisty as the focus, the show has become the Dandy Mott Murder Hour, and »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap: Episode 9, 'Tupperware Party Massacre'

10 December 2014 4:40 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The title of the most episode of "American Horror Story: Freak Show" should tell you two things. One, all those nice ladies who were disappointed by how drunk and uncoordinated Jimmy was at their Tupperware party will meet a grisly end by the time the credits roll. Two, all pretense of subtlety or nuance has gone out the window.

So Fresh, So Clean

The episode kicks off with Dandy (Finn Wittrock) hitting up Maggie Esmeralda (Emma Roberts) for a peek into her crystal ball. There's something different about Dandy; for one thing, he's crying less. He seems so much more alive and charming since he killed his mother and bathed in her blood. When Maggie looks into her crystal ball, we see flashbacks to Dandy doing some fairly grotesque things with corpses, but it's not clear if Maggie sees the same thing. In the beginning of the season, it seemed »

New The Pyramid Movie Received Mediocre Reviews From Major Critics So Far

5 December 2014 12:26 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

20th Century Fox released their new horror/thriller film, "The Pyramid," into theaters today, and we got a few reviews from the top,major critics that appear to be all mediocre at best with just a 40,20 and 50 out of a possible 100 score at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Denis O'Hare, Ashley Hinshaw, James Buckley, Christa-Marie Nicola, and Amir K. We've posted blurbs from the 3, lonely critics, below. Guy Lodge from Variety, gave it a 50 score, stating: "Correctly ascertaining that auds will be less interested in the outcome than in the obstacles along the way, Levasseur plants and executes the pic’s exclamation-point scares with grinning, squelching gusto." Chris Michael over at The Guardian, gave it a 20 score, saying: "Levasseur understands the claustrophobia of being locked inside a stuffy pyramid with collapsing floors and sand traps. Unfortunately for him, Indiana Jones turns out to be incompatible with Alien, and »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 8: 'Blood Bath'

3 December 2014 5:00 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

America's favorite freak show took a breather over Thanksgiving, which was just long enough for the events of the seventh episode to get a little fuzzy. Don't remember what happened? This recap might help. Then again, it might not, because try as I might, it seems like a few important details slipped through the cracks in this episode.

Let's kick things off with some female trouble.

Die, Mommy, Die!

The whole freak/family metaphor is really being pounded home again and again. The last episode focused on bad daddies, so naturally this week is all about their mothers and mother figures. Gloria Mott (Frances Conroy) has started chain-smoking and seeing a shrink, but she's still trying to protect Dandy (Finn Wittrock) from outsiders and/or himself even though she knows the whole situation is all about to blow. Dandy isn't too pleased when he realizes that the nice doctor's inkblots »

3 December 2014 2:46 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Today the first wave of titles playing at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival were announced and while the majority of the titles are new to me the names in front of the camera most certainly are not as you'll see the likes of Michael Fassbender, Nicole Kidman, Saoirse Ronan, Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Jack Black, James Marsden, Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Jemaine Clement, Sarah Silverman, Toni Collette, Vincent Cassell and many, many more among the titles featured. I have collected several photos from many of the films playing the festival, which will take place from January 22 - February 1 in Utah next year. Today's selection includes the U.S. Dramatic Competition, U.S. Documentary Competition, World Cinema Dramatic Competition, World Cinema Documentary Competition and Next program. I'll be adding a few more pictures soon enough, but for now, have a look and see what stands out. »

Sundance 2015's Next slate features Kristen Wiig, John C. Reilly, Chris Abbott

3 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How important is the Sundance Film Festival's Next program? The yearly slate of edgier fare has led to critically acclaimed art house hits such as "Obvious Child," "Listen Up Phillip" and "Sound of My Voice." It also has inspired the Los Angeles-based Sundance Next Festival, which just wrapped up its second edition this past August. So while it may not have the prestige of the U.S. dramatic competition, Next films are something any movie lover should pay attention to. Along with the top competition categories, the Sundance Institute announced the Next slate for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and it features some indie star power. Kristen Wiig stars in Sundance alum Sebastian Silva's "Nasty Baby" (which makes it back-to-back festivals for the "Skeleton Twins" star), John C. Reilly and Michael Cera appear in the comedy "Entertainment" and former "Girls" star Chris Abbott and Cynthia Nixon star in Josh Mond's "James White. »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 7: 'Test of Strength'

19 November 2014 5:10 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"American Horror Story: Freak Show" won't be back on until after Thanksgiving, but tonight's episode didn't feel very filling. Dandy's angry cry-face is pretty representative of the whole episode; there's lots of pouting and near-tantrums and Frances Conroy just needs to come in and regulate the whole damn mess.

Let's just get started, shall we?

That's Just Dandy

Dandy (Finn Wittrock) and Mrs. Mott (Frances Conroy) don't have a whole lot of screen time this week, which is fine because they're best in small doses. Jimmy Darling (Evan Peters) shows up to collect the Tattler twins (Sarah Paulson), who have been dressed up like Alice in Wonderland. When Dandy reveals that he read Dot's diary and that she secretly wants to get surgically separated from Bette, it's not too hard for Jimmy to convince them both to leave Dandy and his fancy caviar behind. Jimmy also gets a big clue »

American Horror Story Freak Show episode 5 review: Pink Cupcakes

7 November 2014 12:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Messy, scary, thrilling and crazy as ever... American Horror Story is a unique piece of work that deserves celebrating...

This review contains spoilers.

4.5 Pink Cupcakes

I have to admit to being a real mark for Dandy Mott, to use a carny term. I'm buying what that weirdo is selling, and to me, he's the most interesting villain figure on a show that is not short of repulsive men (Denis O'Hare's Stanley, Michael Chiklis's Dell) or villains. I also really like that most people, like the late Dora and the currently living Gloria, can see through Dandy's pathetic attempts at sublimating his urges. The big question, particularly around Gloria, is just how afraid she was of her son, and I think the answer is terrified. Clearly there's something in his bloodline that suggests madness, and Gloria outright mentions their long history of cousin-crossing as a possible explanation for Dandy's madness, »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 5: 'Pink Cupcakes'

5 November 2014 6:00 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Pink Cupcakes" continues the show's grand tradition of mixing sex and blood and showbiz, with some added "gotcha" moments that had me questioning the future of the season. It also gives some good screen time to one of the biggest stars on the show, Angela Bassett, and her character Desiree Dupree, and it introduces two new characters that are already very interesting.

Let's start the show. Spoilers from here on out.

"We Toil In The Dark"

The very first scenes of the episode are a fantasy of Stanley's that takes place at the medical oddity museum, where there's a "Night of Discovery" gala and unveiling of their latest specimen. Stanley (Denis O'Hare) and Maggie (Emma Roberts) are in the audience, and there's someone awfully familiar floating in the tank. It's a fantasy that we'll return to again and again, wherein Stanley finally gets his day in the sun (and gets »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 3: 'Edward Mordrake, Pt. 2'

29 October 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Although there were some serious let-downs in this week's episode of "American Horror Story: Freak Show," it serves as a reminder of just how far the show runners are willing to push past the boundaries of taste and sanity on basic cable. Of course, the Grand Guignol gore and straight-up weirdness is why most of us watch it, so kudos to everyone involved for making this episode the stuff of nightmares.

Spoilers start here. Let's get this show on the road.

Taking Off the Masks

This week's episode caps off, so to speak, the story of Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley) and solves the mystery of who he was looking to take with him into the greenish fog. Edward, as directed by the demonic face on the back of his head, continues peppering each of the performers with questions about their deepest secrets and darkest shames, which is a cool narrative »

American Horror Story Freak Show episode 3 review: Edward Mordrake (Part 1)

22 October 2014 11:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This season of American Horror Story has found the right balance between crazy ideas and their crazy execution...

This review contains spoilers.

4.3 Edward Mordrake (Part 1)

The cops are still sniffing around the camp, Jupiter is under a curfew as Twisty continues his bloody rampage, Meep is dead and buried with a pile of chicken heads to see him through to the great beyond, and once again the camp finds itself dealing with new arrivals. First Bette and Dot, then Dell and Desiree add to the dysfunction, and now Esmerelda the spiritualist (Emma Roberts) is there to liven things up a bit. But Esmerelda is more con artist than spiritualist, and she's working on a plot with her conspirator Stanley (Denis O'Hare) to enrich themselves by any means necessary. As if that wasn't enough, the ghost of a long-dead sideshow attraction turned demon is just looking for any excuse to crash the party. »
