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 »

"...'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..."

Having wrapped just last week on the fifth season of The Vampire Diaries, it appears that actress Nina Dobrev won’t be taking a vacation as she has just signed on for comedy horror Final Girls. The film which is being directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson, the mind behind A Very Harold And Kumar 3D Christmas, starts filming next week in Louisiana.
The film which also stars Malin Akerman and American Horror Story’s Taissa Farmiga, sees Farmiga and her group of friends transported into an 80′s slasher movie starring Akerman, Farmiga’s deceased mother. The group must then unite to stop the films killer from killing them. So Last Action Hero meets Halloween, with a little Hot Tub Time Machine thrown in.

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. »

Ringmaster Jessica Lange, report for duty! We knew that next season's American Horror Story was going to be set at a carnival, but now (thanks to Ryan Murphy's Twitter) we know that it will be called American Horror Story: Freak Show. Just how many limbs will they give Evan Peters? Will Murphy choose to conjoin Emma Roberts and Taissa Farmiga? When will Sarah Paulson start growing out her beard? »

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 »

Farmiga plays a grieving daughter who finds herself trapped inside one of the films of her late 1980s scream queen mother (Akerman).
Reunited, the pair join forces against a killer haunting the film world.
A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas director Strauss-Schulson was first reported to be attached to The Final Girls in 2011.
Akerman has most recently been starring in the television show Trophy Wife.
Mark Fortin and Josh Miller wrote the screenplay. The story follows the grieving teenage daughter of an 80s scream queen. The young woman and her friends are sucked into her mother's most famous horror movie, where the two are reunited and must battle one of the decade's deadliest serial killers together.
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions have picked 'Final Girls', a long forgotten horror-comedy project that's been sitting about kicking its heels for nigh on 3 years. Now as the project moves into pre-production a couple of hotties have been given the task of filling two of the main roles. They are namely Malin Akerman -below ('Watchmen', 'Rock of Ages') and Taissa Farmiga ('American Horror Story'). The premise of the movie will find a teenage girl and her friends getting sucked into the '80s slasher film that her mother starred in.

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. We're going to guess Farmiga is the »
