Why American Horror Story Probably Dubbed Andy Warhol a Cult Leader

43 minutes ago

Image Source: FX Networks American Horror Story: Cult is taking viewers back in time this season to meet several real-life cult leaders. All of them will be played by Evan Peters, who is currently offering up a creepy performance as the chaos-seeking Kai. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Peters revealed that he will be playing Charles Manson, David Koresh, Jim Jones, Marshall Applewhite, and Andy Warhol over the course of the season. If you're thinking one of those people is not like the others, then you are not alone. Because, come on, was Andy Warhol really a cult leader? The famed pop art master was many things, including a '60s icon, but he certainly didn't have a violent cult like Manson, or a following built around doomsday propaganda like Jones. What Warhol did have was a cult of personality, the Factory, and a group of Superstars. Warhol »

Why Harrison's Death Is So Vital to Kai's Twisted Plans on American Horror Story: Cult

2 hours ago

When American Horror Story: Cult first introduced the blue-haired Kai Anderson (Evan Peters), it took us all of two seconds to realize just how crazy he is (remember that Cheetos scene?). A lot of our initial intrigue centered on how and why Kai recruited his cult members, but now things are starting to become clear thanks to the show's most recent death. During episode seven, "Valerie Solanas Died For Your Sins: Scumbag," we say goodbye to one of Kai's first recruits and, honestly, someone we thought was in it for the long haul - Harrison Wilton, played by Billy Eichner. After Harrison's wife, Meadow, takes her own life in the previous episode as per Kai's request, Harrison ends up giving new meaning to Ivy's "Butchery" when the frustrated women within the cult break off and form their own group. But is that a part of Kai's plan all along? Are »

Game of Thrones: This Aegon Easter Egg Is Just as Sweet as It Is Heartbreaking

2 hours ago

For the most part, Game of Thrones is an endurance test for how many miserable, heartbreaking, and stomach-churning events you can withstand in one sitting. There have been a few bright spots over the last seven seasons, though, and Ser Davos Seaworth's tender friendship with young Shireen Baratheon is at the top of the list. As it happens, one of their tutoring sessions happens to contain a subtle Easter egg concerning the big reveal about Jon Snow's true name in the season seven finale. As you might recall, before showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss decided to rip out our hearts with Shireen's fate, there's a scene from a few seasons back where she's trying to teach the illiterate Davos how to read and write. Reddit user Efurthy realized that Shireen's choice for the first word to teach her new student (and Jon Snow's future Bff) could not »

American Horror Story Made Up a Bunch of Stuff About the Zodiac Killer - Here's the Truth

3 hours ago

On the latest episode of American Horror Story: Cult, the show takes a break from its present-day storyline to flash back to two very different cults in the 1960s: the cult of Andy Warhol's bohemian, counterculture movement and the radical feminist cult of Valerie Solanas, whose purpose was to overthrow the government and eliminate men. Over the course of the episode, Valerie's former lover Bebe Babbitt (welcome to Cult, Frances Conroy!) relays Valerie's tale to Beverly, Ivy, and Winter. It comes out that Valerie's Scum cult (Society for Cutting Up Men) was actually the real identity of the Zodiac Killer. Wait, what? Yeah, that's exactly what a lot of viewers were saying on social media. Ahs: Cult's version of the story is that while Valerie is locked away in New York for shooting Andy Warhol, her cult members are in California killing couples at lovers lane spots, then painting »

American Horror Story: Here's How Andy Warhol Actually Died

3 hours ago

It was revealed before the season premiere of American Horror Story: Cult that various real-life cult leaders would be appearing this season, all played by Evan Peters, who is starring in the season as Kai Anderson, leader of his own little murderous cult in small-town Michigan. The first of these real-life cult leaders made an appearance in the most recent episode, titled "Valerie Solanas Died For Your Sins: Scumbag," in the form of Andy Warhol, generally considered a leading figure in the pop art movement of the 1960s. On Ahs: Cult, Warhol is depicted as a condescending, pretentious man whose belittlement of would-be artist Valerie Solanas earns him a bullet wound to the abdomen when a spurned Solanas shows up at his New York City studio, The Factory, and shoots him at close range. Reports of Warhol's alleged misogyny are mixed, but in real life, Solanas did feel slighted by Warhol, »

Mindhunter: Your New Netflix Obsession Has (Terrifying) Roots in Reality

3 hours ago

Netflix is debuted a new psychological thriller recently with Mindhunter, a 10-episode drama based on the true crime book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit. So, is it based on a true story? Pretty much. The three main characters on Mindhunter are based on real people, though they aren't exact copies. The two FBI special agents from the bureau's Behavioral Science Unit are Holden Ford and Bill Tench, played by Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany, respectively. Those two men are based on John E. Douglas (who co-authored the book on which Mindhunter is based) and Robert K. Ressler. Douglas, now 72 years old, is one of the first criminal profilers in the United States. After serving in the Air Force, he went to work for the FBI in 1970 - first as a sniper in the Swat team and later as a hostage negotiator. In 1977, he transferred to the »

Lena Dunham Nailed Her Role on American Horror Story, but About That Accent . . .

3 hours ago

Lena Dunham finally made her American Horror Story: Cult debut, portraying real-life figure and radical feminist Valerie Solanas. Though Dunham was convincing as the unwavering activist who attempted to assassinate Andy Warhol in 1968, fans couldn't help but ponder one recurring question: what was up with her accent? Being that Solanas was born and raised in New Jersey, Dunham understandably tried to re-create the strong accent during her onscreen portrayal. Unfortunately, her accent seemed to drift in and out throughout the episode. In her defense, though, Dunham's own accent isn't too different with her having grown up in New York, which only complicates matters more. Because everyone on the internet has a strong opinion about everything, Twitter quickly came forward with questions about the, well, questionable accent.

Why Season 7 of The Walking Dead Was Just Not That Great

4 hours ago

When we were officially done with the seventh season of The Walking Dead, I was pretty disappointed. Don't get me wrong - plenty of things happen in season seven. The episodes kick off by revealing Negan's two unlucky victims, and we just watch the death toll climb from there. We literally meet a tiger! And yet, for all the progress we've made since Negan's fateful introduction, I can't help but feel like we didn't go anywhere at all. I'm just going to say it: The Walking Dead spends a lot of season seven wasting our time. Call it filler, call it lollygagging, call it whatever. The point is, season seven drags on. In the first half of the season, we become acquainted with the various new communities: we make our way through the Sanctuary, the Kingdom, and Oceanside. We endure inexplicably long episodes where Negan shows Carl around the Sanctuary »

12 Disturbing Moments From The Walking Dead Comics You'll Be Glad the Show Skipped

4 hours ago

The Walking Dead is no stranger to gore and over-the-top violence, and after seven seasons, we feel like we've seen it all. From poor Glenn getting his head smashed in so hard his eyeball nearly popped out to watching an iron melt a guy's face off, there's probably not a lot left to surprise us, right? Wrong.

Reminder: Riverdale's New Reggie Made a Very Nsfw Cameo on American Horror Story: Hotel

5 hours ago

Although many Riverdale fans were upset to discover the original actor who played Reggie, the gorgeous Ross Butler, was leaving the drama for his meatier role on season two of 13 Reasons Why, they were soon appeased with some very, very fine news: Charles Melton, above, was on board to replace him. Though Melton isn't a household name quite yet, he also isn't a total newcomer to Hollywood; he played a model on season five of Glee and Mr. Wu in American Horror Story: Hotel. His Nsfw appearance on the latter show has recently resurfaced, and it's truly something to behold. As fans of the Hotel season of the anthology horror show might recall, Mr. Wu's 2015 run on the show doesn't end well. The handsome womanizer checks in to the Cortez and runs into a pair of seductive, but murderous ghosts who make quick work of him. Fortunately, he does »

Get to Know the Rising Star Behind Mindhunter's Captivating Debbie

5 hours ago

Apart from its engaging story and brooding cinematography, where Netflix's Mindhunter really excels is with its stellar cast. While we're personally obsessed with the spot-on casting of serial killer Ed Kemper, the entire ensemble is great. In particular, the actress who portrays Deborah "Debbie" Mitford - Canadian actress Hannah Gross - seems to be getting a lot of praise for her breakout role as a sociology student who begins a relationship with Jonathan Groff's FBI agent Holden Ford. At just 25 years old, Gross already has a few notable indie films, several short films, and some theater experience on her résumé. While studying at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, the actress directed a performance of A Streetcar Named Desire at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. In 2013, she was cast in the indie drama I Used to Be Darker, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. After »

Why the Sex Scenes on Netflix's Mindhunter Are Such a Big Effing Deal

6 hours ago

Sexy spoilers for Netflix's Mindhunter ahead! Let's not get it twisted: Mindhunter is a series that focuses, first and foremost, on serial killers and their respective manners of thinking. Most of these killers' gruesome crimes are tied to their unhealthy sexual attitudes, and they reveal deeply disturbing ideas about women and consent while being interviewed by main characters Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany). But it's precisely these murderers' problematic sexual attitudes that make the protagonist's sex scenes in the first two episodes of the Netflix series so important. Despite his increasingly obvious immersion in the twisted world of serial killers and violent criminals, FBI behavioral scientist Holden maintains a healthy sexual relationship with his girlfriend, Debbie. Though some aspects of the couple's sexual rapport - namely, Holden's lack of hesitation to perform oral sex on Debbie - are deemed "deviant" by his employer's standards, they are »

UnReal Takes on The Bachelorette in the Dramatic Season 3 Trailer

6 hours ago

After seemingly critiquing The Bachelor for two seasons with their own, fictional version of the show, Lifetime's UnReal is about to take on the franchise's female counterpart. In the trailer for the third season, conniving producers Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby) and Quinn King (Constance Zimmer) get ready to introduce the first female suitor on Everlasting, portrayed by Caitlin FitzGerald of Master of Sex. It's clear from the trailer that Rachel and Quinn won't be able to manipulate this suitor the way they have in the past, surely presenting new challenges and drama to come. The third season is set to premiere on Feb. 26, 2018. »

Wondering What You Should Binge Next? Netflix Just Revealed Its 20 Most Popular Shows

7 hours ago

Netflix has always been notoriously cagey about revealing the ratings of its shows, but the streaming giant recently revealed some big numbers. While it didn't get into the nitty-gritty, Netflix did share its top 20 most binge-watched shows in an official press release that probably includes many of your own favorites. "There's a unique satisfaction that comes from being the first to finish a story - whether it's the final page of a book or the last, climactic moments of your favorite TV show," Brian Wright, vice president of original series, explained. "Netflix allows you to watch in a way you never could before, and there's nothing better than seeing a show engage our members and ignite a passion for viewing." According to Netflix, 8.4 million subscribers choose to race through an entire series (aka spending a weekend on the couch, relatable) "within 24 hours of its release."

This Revelation About The Dark Knight Will Change the Way You See Heath Ledger's Joker

7 hours ago

Heath Ledger's performance in 2008's The Dark Knight as the Joker is almost as legendary as the Batman villain himself. From the horrifying choice in makeup, which vastly differed from previous onscreen iterations of the character, to his unique mannerisms, it was clear that the Australian actor had put a lot of thought into playing the Joker. Christian Bale recently confirmed just how hard his costar committed to the role during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. When Bale was asked what it was like working with Ledger, he immediately brought up the scene in the film where Batman and the Joker are in an interrogation room and things get violent. His response makes it all the more obvious why Ledger was posthumously awarded the best supporting actor Oscar in 2009 following his untimely death: "As you see in the movie, Batman starts beating the Joker and realizes that this is not your ordinary foe. »

The Heartbreaking Detail From Goblet of Fire That We Never Noticed Before

Image Source: Everett Collection Rewatching the Harry Potter films over and over and over again is one of my favorite pastimes, and I never fail to notice something new each time. Sometimes it's silly - like that dirty joke in Order of the Phoenix - but sometimes it's just really, really sad. Fair warning: this is the latter. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, after the Death Eaters attack the Quidditch World Cup campsite, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley find themselves targeted by Ministry of Magic wizards who think they are involved due to being at the "scene of the crime" below the Dark Mark. As spells are cast in their direction, Arthur Weasley yells, "Stop! That's my son!" Now, flash forward to a pivotal and gut-wrenching scene toward the end of the film. When Harry returns to Hogwarts using the Triwizard Cup portkey, he brings »
