'American Horror Story: Freak Show': 5 Things We Really Want to See in Season 4

22 April 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This past year, "American Horror Story" went from being the really, really great show that a small but dedicated (and, of course, deeply perverse) fan base watched to becoming a genuine, zeitgeist-capturing cultural phenomenon. (Fun fact: people love witches!) That means that all eyes are on the forthcoming new installment, "American Horror Story: Freak Show," which, should it stick to the show's broadcast schedule, should debut sometime before Halloween.

It's going to be a long, long few months until creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk and their band of merry deviants return to reap more bloody mayhem. (Especially if you've already watched the similarly brilliant, stand-alone "True Detective.") So what to do until then? Well, wildly speculate on what we want from the upcoming season of "American Horror Story," of course.

So here are five things that we really, really, ridiculously want to see from season 4 of "American Horror Story »

From Anchor Bay Films, Sneak Peek director Adam Rodgers' romantic comedy feature "At Middleton", starring Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga now available on Blu-ray and DVD:

"...'George' and 'Edith' are two strangers who meet on their children’s campus tour at the idyllic 'Middleton College'. Failing comically to connect with their kids, George and Edith play hooky together, ditching the official tour for a carefree adventure reminiscent of their own college years. 

"But what begins as an afternoon of fun soon becomes a revealing and enlightening experience that will change their lives forever in a deeply moving portrait of roads not taken and the timelessness of youth..."

Also starring are Taissa Farmiga, Spencer Lofranco, Peter Riegert and Tom Skerritt.

The Vampire Diaries Star Nina Dobrev Joins The Final Girls

14 April 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Sexy star of 'The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev (below) is the latest actress to sign on for Todd Strauss-Schulson's ('A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas') new horror comedy 'The Final Girls'. The 25 year old has signed on to Groundswell Productions' latest offering and is set to play the former friend of Taissa Farmiga's ('American Horror Story') character. Farmiga finds herself trapped inside a horror film in which her now dead mother (played by the hot Malin Akerman ('Watchmen')) starred in during the 1980's. So there's plenty of scope there for genre in-jokes, references and hopefully a whole lot of horror. Sony Pictures will be distributing the feature which begins shooting this month in Louisiana. »

American Horror Story Heads To The Carnival For Season 4

18 March 2014 5:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it first hit the small screen in October 2011, American Horror Story may have seemed like a risky prospect. Conceived as an anthology horror series featuring a repertory cast, the subject matter was necessarily dark and challenging. Against all odds, however, it quickly became a critical success, enjoying impressive ratings and much excitement surrounding the premise of each new subsequent season.

Season one was set in the present day in a haunted house, season two in 1964 in an asylum for the criminally insane, and season three took place in the present day, the 1970s and the 1830s, as it followed the descendants of survivors of the Salem witch trials. Now, writer Douglas Petrie has confirmed the rumoured premise of the upcoming fourth season, while addressing the Nerdist Writers Panel Podcast. When asked by panelists Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (Syfy’s 12 Monkeys), and Moira Kirland (Arrow, Castle, Medium) if the »

The Final Girls Horror-Comedy Finds New Life, Gets Farmiga & Akerman

28 February 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

The last time we reported on The Final Girls was back in 2011. That was when Todd Strauss-Schulson, the director of A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas , was attached to the project for New Line. The story, from screenwriters Mark Fortin and Josh Miller, found a teenage girl and her friends sucked into the '80s slasher film that her mother starred in. It sounded like a fun premise that can bring two generations of horror together and it also opens the door to seeing a cool slasher back on the screen. Alas, things went quiet on the project, until now. Screen Daily says Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has picked up the project and Malin Akerman ( Watchmen ) and Taissa Farmiga ("American Horror Story: Coven") will star.
