Out on UK DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK this week is the rather excellent American Horror Story: Coven, which stars Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe. To celebrate the release, we’ve got an exclusive look at two of the special features on the release.

Caught in the turmoil is a new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga, The Bling Ring) who harbours a terrifying secret of her own.

"Adventure Time: The Complete Fourth Season"
If you're not a fan of this sweetly silly animated series on the Cartoon Network, it's time you got acquainted with Finn and his canine pal Jake and their weird adventures in the Land of Ooo. Seriously, this is one of the coolest cartoons out there! Just ask Princess Bubblegum or adorable Marceline the Vampire Queen.
Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies is not your typical boarding school, but what would you expect from Ryan Murphy et al? Gabourey Sidibe, Emma Roberts, Taissa Farmiga, and Jamie Brewer play the newest arrivals at the Academy in New Orleans, led by the Academy's meek headmistress Cordelia Foxx. Jessica Lange appears as Fiona Goode, »

We'll always know what you did last summer*. Because Sony won’t let us forget.
Deadline recently reported that the studio is rebooting I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 1997 slasher film about a group of college kids (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Ryan Phillippe) who cover up their hit-and-run, only to be stalked and slayed by the very person they thought they killed.
Now our ultimate dream cast for this reboot is present day J.Love, Smg, Freddie Prinze, and Ryan P. playing the same roles they did two decades ago (most are available), but since that definitely won’t happen, we brainstormed a few suggestions:
News: Find out which Schwarzenegger movie is also getting a reboot!

One of the benefits of American Horror Story‘s anthology formula is that the same actors can return over and over again in different roles, as the series spans time from the 1960s setting of Asylum to the modern-day narrative of seasons like Murder House. The fact that many members of the principal cast – including Jessica Lange, Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga – have returned in different roles has raised fan speculation over whether or not the various stories take place in the same universe, and whether there’s some bizarre form of reincarnation going on.

Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has been cast as Frankenstein author Mary Shelly in a film project called Mary Shelley's Monster. The story "tracks the young writer as she writes her seminal novel and is drawn into a Faustian bargain with her own 'monster' of an alter ego, who offers literary fame at a desperate personal cost." Shelley first published her classic novel Frankenstein anonymously at the age of 21.
The film's producer Rose Ganguzza envisions Shelley's life as "the story of the most extraordinary 19th century teenage heroine told in a visceral, sexy, contemporary way. Our film is not a period drama. It is a story of youth that transcends time, a gothic romance, a love triangle that involves a dark passenger and we are tremendously excited to have such an exciting cast onboard this wonderful project."

One of the masterminds behind American Horror Story: Coven was director and co-executive producer Alfonso Gómez-Rejón, who garnered two Emmy nominations this year, one for Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries (for the season’s first episode, “Bitchcraft”). A former assistant to such legends as Martin Scorsese, Nora Ephron, and Robert De Niro, Gómez-Rejón also directed several episodes of Glee (including an all-time fan favorite, “A Very Glee Christmas”). Vulture spoke to him about honing the tone of Ahs: Coven, the big witch fashion moment of 2014, and, of course, Stevie Nicks.The first episode was such a mixture of styles and types of horror, and it was at once genuinely scary and laugh-out-loud funny. What are some of the themes that you were trying to establish?Obviously, we had to establish the worlds — Lalaurie's backstory and her world, and contemporary New Orleans, as well as Zoe's (Taissa Farmiga's »
