American Horror Story: Freak Show Blu-ray / DVD Release Details & Cover Art

22 July 2015 3:05 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Elsa's Cabinet of Curiosities will be making house calls this fall, as Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced that American Horror Story: Freak Show will come out on Blu-ray and DVD October 6th.

From FoxConnect: "Step inside American Horror Story: Freak Show, the terrifyingly twisted reincarnation of TV’s most shockingly original series. Jessica Lange leads an extraordinary, awardwinning cast that includes Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson and Michael Chiklis. Lange plays Elsa Mars, the proprietor of a troupe of human “curiosities” on a desperate journey of survival in the sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida, in 1952. Her menagerie of performers includes a two-headed, telepathic twin (Paulson), a take-charge bearded lady (Bates), a vulnerable strongman (Chiklis) and his sultry, three-breasted wife (Bassett). But the strange emergence of a dark entity will savagely threaten the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike.

‘Game Dev Tycoon': A timeless simulator that justifies the hours invested

1 July 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

With Curtain Call, we asked our team what some of their most memorable and satisfactory finales were in the realm of gaming, and these entries are the result. Please note that they may include a bevy of spoilers concerning the endings in question and the plots they pertain to. You’ve been warned!

As much as it can, Game Dev Tycoon puts you in the driver’s seat of making video games for a living. As you grow in fame and capital, you move to bigger offices, hire employees, and eventually develop your own console, if you so choose. Along the way, you are tasked with making the next big video game on the newest and best consoles. Everything costs money, however, and the risks don’t always pay off.

That’s part of what I love so much about this game. The game ‘ends’ after 35 years, but there’s »

‘Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream, Drop, Distance’ gives Riku a starring role

1 July 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With Curtain Call, we asked our team what some of their most memorable and satisfactory finales were in the realm of gaming, and these entries are the result. Please note that they may include a bevy of spoilers concerning the endings in question and the plots they pertain to. You’ve been warned!

Kingdom Hearts: Dream, Drop, Distance gave players two things they had been asking for since Kingdom Hearts II: 1. Story advancement and 2. More Riku. Widely considered another strong entry in the series, it is Dream, Drop, Distance’s finale that separates it from the pack because it finally gives Riku a chance to shine brighter than Sora.

In this entry to the series, Riku and Sora embark on a quest to complete the Mark of Mastery Exam set up by Master Yen Sid. The two heroes enter separate dream worlds with the task of unlocking the Keyholes of »

‘Kingdom Hearts II’ goes for broke with an all or nothing final act

28 June 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With Curtain Call, we asked our team what some of their most memorable and satisfactory finales were in the realm of gaming, and these entries are the result. Please note that they may include a bevy of spoilers concerning the endings in question and the plots they pertain to. You’ve been warned!

There’s a lot to love about Kingdom Hearts II, the sequel to Disney and Square-Enix’s mashup of their respective properties. It plays smoother than the first one, the plot elements are better balanced between the whimsical and serious, and all around the production values blows the first game completely out of the water. With that said however, Khii does share one key commonality with its predecessor, and that’s a final section that handily outshines the rest of the adventure.

During the first half of Khii, there’s a lot of build-up, and not a lot of understanding. »

‘Conduit 2′ finale does something amazing–it makes mediocre memorable

With Curtain Call, we asked our team what some of their most memorable and satisfactory finales were in the realm of gaming, and these entries are the result. Please note that they may include a bevy of spoilers concerning the endings in question and the plots they pertain to. You’ve been warned!

It’s not how you start, but how you finish. In the case of High Voltage Software’s cheesy sci-fi shooter sequel for the Wii, Conduit 2, you can substitute “start” with “spend ninety-nine percent of the game”, and this axiom still rings true. Why? Because despite a lackluster (though improved) experience fighting alien invaders across the globe while being annoyed by the disembodied voice of Kevin Sorbo now residing in your futuristic battle armor suit, Conduit 2 has an ending that totally nails the utterly ridiculous SyFy Channel nature of its up until then boring, cardboard story. I mean perfectly. »

Red Dead Redemption and the Cycle of Violence

With Curtain Call, we asked our team what some of their most memorable and satisfactory finales were in the realm of gaming, and these entries are the result. Please note that they may include a bevy of spoilers concerning the endings in question and the plots they pertain to. You’ve been warned!

It’s rare when I see something so thoroughly misinterpreted by just about everyone. Maybe it’s because games don’t cover easily misinterpreted themes that often, or maybe it’s because the way games tackle certain subjects lends to one interpretation, even if the polar opposite was supposed to be read into it.

The latter is what I think happened to Red Dead Redemption. This game explores a number of themes. It’s a story of redemption, it’s a story of change, it’s a story about a clash of ideals, it deconstructs the western outlaw, »

‘Xenoblade Chronicles’ posits a finale worthy of time spent

7 June 2015 4:27 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With Curtain Call, we asked our team what some of their most memorable and satisfactory finales were in the realm of gaming, and these entries are the result. Please note that they may include a bevy of spoilers concerning the endings in question and the plots they pertain to. You’ve been warned!

One of the great epic RPGs of the previous generation, and perhaps of all time, Xenoblade Chronicles is a game that’s staggering in it’s length and depth. Boasting a massive campaign, two huge open worlds and an absurdly daunting 500 side quests to complete, Xenoblade establishes itself very quickly as a game that will require a sizable investment of time and effort for anyone ambitious enough to tackle it. With that in mind, this is a game that has a lot of pressure to deliver when it comes to the finale.

Ernie Johnson sure is a class act.

TNT’s Johnson knows a thing or two about fighting cancer. In 2006, he took a leave of absence during his battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He later returned as host of the Emmy-winning show “NBA on TNT” alongside Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith.

Scott’s daughters attended the 36th Sports Emmys on behalf of their father, who was honored for his service and dedication to sports media.

American Horror Story season 5: Lady Gaga to star, hotel theme

26 February 2015 1:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The next American Horror Story will be ‘Hotel’ and will star the trendy pop musician Lady Gaga

As you probably guessed from the title of the article you just clicked on, Lady Gaga is set to star in American Horror Story’s latest instalment, dubbed American Horror Story: Hotel.

It couldn’t have come at a better time, in terms of audience good will, seeing as Lady Gaga won over a whole lot of film and TV fans with her performance at the 87th Academy Awards on Sunday night. Her Sin City: A Dame To Kill For appearance helped her geek credibility levels, too.

Little else is known of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s next season of American Horror Story, but we can assume that the levels of hotel-themed horror will be a little worse than a lack of fried bread on the breakfast menu.

As is expected from the secretive show, »

American Horror Story season 4 episode 13 review: Curtain Call

23 January 2015 1:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

American Horror Story Freak Show concludes with one of the season's better episodes, and - what else? - a grisly murder spree...

This review contains spoilers.

4.13 Curtain Call

The one thing you can say about this season of American Horror Story as a whole is that it doesn't lack teeth. There have been a lot of crazy things that happened this season with plenty of graphic violence, torture, serial killers, weird sex stuff... you know, the standard American Horror Story staples, just turned up to 11 with the addition of killer clowns, human oddities, and cover songs. With the end of this season of Ahs comes the end of a whole lot of characters we've spent time with this season in shockingly graphic, straightforward manner courtesy of one Dandy Mott.

At first, it looks like the more things change, the more they stay the same. Dandy has taken over, and he's got deep pockets. »

American Horror Story, Ep. 4.13: “Curtain Call” is flawed fun, like the season

22 January 2015 6:23 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show, Season 4, Episode 13: “Curtain Call

Written by John J. Gray

Directed by Bradley Buecker

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Et on FX

Of course Freak Show would end this way. It makes perfect sense that a season that’s never been totally willing to invest in a particular character as a hero or a villain figure would be brought to its conclusion by someone who the audience had known previously through just a two episode mini-arc in the season’s first half. Freak Show has flirted with protagonists (Jimmy, Bette and Dot, etc.) and antagonists (Twisty, Stanley, Dandy, etc.), some better and some worse, but none of them have fit particularly well in the roles they appeared to be slotted for. Accordingly, the death of an entertaining but emotionally inconsequential character (Elsa) at the hands of an even less important character (Edward Mordrake) seems to »

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call Branching Out With New Dlc

22 January 2015 9:13 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call launched for the 3Ds in North America last September, Square Enix has continued to periodically support the rhythm-based spinoff by releasing additional songs as downloadable add-ons. The latest batch of tracks arriving in Japan this week, and presumably in North America soon after, are a bit of a departure, though, as only one of the 6 songs comes from a Final Fantasy game. The others come from Square Enix’s own Romancing SaGa 3, the DS cult hit The World Ends With You, and the classic Super Nintendo game Chrono Trigger.

The full tracklist can be seen below, and a Japanese preview video showing snippets of each song can be viewed above.

[Bms] Liberi Fatali (Final Fantasy VIII) [Bms] The Last Battle (Romancing SaGa 3) [Bms] World Revolution (Chrono Trigger) [Fms] Wind Scene (Chrono Trigger) [Bms] Twister (The World Ends With You) [Fms] Calling (The World Ends With You)

Almost Everyone Died in the ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Finale

22 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

It’s over. American Horror Story: Freak Show aired its final episode last night, and with it we say goodbye to Elsa Mars and her Cabinet of Curiosities. It’s been a bizarre season, to say the least. From Dandy’s psychotic tendencies to Chester (Neil Patrick Harris) and his creepy doll, Freak Show definitely wasn’t short of thrills. As for the finale? Well, there was a lot of death.

Dandy massacred everyone while Edward Mordrake returned to fuck shit up. We weren’t prepared for all of the killing that went down, so let’s break down the highlights from last night’s episode, appropriately titled “Curtain Call.”

The freaks quit on Dandy, so he literally shoots them all. 

Dandy is now the owner of Elsa’s Cabinet of Curiosities, and his first order of business is to have the freaks hang up a giant banner advertising »

American Horror Story: Freak Show Finale Recap: Is That All There Is?

As “Curtain Call” brought American Horror Story: Freak Show to a close, Dandy at last made his stage “debut,” and Elsa arrived in the one place in the world that might actually be weirder than her own Cabinet of Curiosities: Hollywood.

Here’s how it all fell apart and came together.

The Beginning Of The End | As the finale kicked off, Dandy was pitching a fit over the fact that, just like Penny predicted, audiences weren’t lining up to see a “rich Nancy sing show tunes.” And, in no time, he’d become so intolerable that he’d been decked by Amazon Eve, »
