‘Haven’ Star Emily Rose Talks Mara-Audrey Aftermath and ‘Orphan Black’ Comparisons

21 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Syfy's “Haven” pulled off a twist no one saw coming when it separated its leading lady into two distinct — but identical — characters. Series star Emily Rose, who now plays both Audrey Parker and her evil counterpart Mara, told TheWrap that she's glad she gets to keep both personalities for the foreseeable future. See photos: ‘American Horror Story’ to ‘True Detective': 8 Anthology Series That Are Changing TV “I was a little scared to let Mara go,” Rose said. “Fortunately, I didn't have to do that.” Mara and Audrey are now running around Haven, Maine, at the same time, though Audrey has. »

World Clown Association President Speaks Out Against Scary Clowns

24 October 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The clown community has a bit of a PR problem right now. First there was a freaky-deaky clown harassing people in a small California town. Then American Horror Story: Freak Show returned and brought with it a nightmarish clown. Halloween season is always a metaphorical tiny car surprisingly full of literal scary clowns, and there’s the ongoing problem of the Insane Clown Posse. For Randy Christensen, this issue is no laughing matter. As president-elect of the World Clown Association, Christensen, who performs as Oxford P. Nuts, among other names, is serious about what constitutes real clowning — and scary stuff ain’t it. We spoke with Christensen about the current fraught state of clowning and how people should understand the spate of frightening doppelgängers. What do people need to understand about the problem with scary clowns? Technically, I don’t even refer to horror clowns as clowns. They’re horror characters. »

American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 3 Review

24 October 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alice Rush reviews the third episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show

Halloween episodes of American Horror Story have always proven to be some of the more memorable instalments of the series, and quite rightly so. As a show that thrives on storytelling, terror and typically a lot of fake blood, Halloween would seem to be the ideal time to show off. The week’s episode “Edward Mordrake part 1” takes a less in-yer-face horror approach, instead favouring a supernatural spin. It may not be as exhilarating as the Halloween episode in ‘Murder House’ but it moves the series forward in the right direction and treats us to some true typical ‘Ahs’ gems.

The arrival of two new characters this week sees even more danger being brought to the freak show. Con artist Esmerelda arrives at Elsa’s camp claiming to be a fortune teller, however she is a fraud working with Stanley, »

The Craziest Moments from American Horror Story Season 2

24 October 2014 4:40 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

With how much I’ve been enjoying American Horror Story: Freak Show so far this season and as a bit of a companion piece to the article I posted yesterday about Coven, I decided to dive back into American Horror Story Season 2, Asylum, and take a look at the craziest moments from what I think is easily the show’s best season. Did all of it work? No, not at all. Some things (like those pesky aliens) may have been better left in the writers’ minds than on the page. However, unlike Murder House, which didn’t really click with me till near the end of its season, and Coven, which tried to focus on too much and didn’t really end up doing anything with any of its characters throughout its 13 episodes, American Horror Story Season 2 did a very good job of providing compelling characters, like Kit and Lana, »

Pop Sensation Jessica Lange's Creepy Lana Del Rey Cover Will Mesmerize You

23 October 2014 7:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Oh, what's that? You enjoyed Jessica Lange's rendition of David Bowie's "Life on Mars" as seen on "American Horror Story"? Well lookie here, the pop sensation is back with another bizarre cover. Circus matron Elsa Mars trades in Marlene Dietrich for Norma Desmond in this rendition of Lana Del Rey's "Gods and Monsters" from last night's "Freak Show," and it's just as strange as you would ever want. Jack-o-lanterns! Feather boas! Theatricality! Wes Bentley as Evil Abraham Lincoln, I guess! Die happy, you've had an incredible life. »

Watch 'American Horror Story' Tackle Lana Del Rey's 'Gods & Monsters'

23 October 2014 7:06 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show's anachronistic use of contemporary songs continued last night with a cover of Lana Del Rey's "Gods & Monsters." It's weird to hear Jessica Lange's Marlene Dietrich wannabe Elsa sing the name "Jim Morrison" on a show based in 1952 Jupiter, Florida, but the Born to Die - Paradise Edition track does fit the overall theme. 

Elsa croons, "Me and God, we don't get along so now I sing," which is the "Gods & Monsters" lyric that resonates the most with these characters and ties in »

Ahs: Freakshow "Edward Mordrake Pt. 1"

23 October 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ahs rips its own plotlines off for this new episode (guest starring Wes Bentley)How do you make an episode in which almost nothing happens almost half-again as long as episodes where lots of things happen? I know not but Hollywood is getting very good at it lately what with all their supersized TV episodes and two part movie finales for quadrilogies where a trilogy (or less) would do.

In "honor" of the bloating, we're going svelte with a briefer rundown . 

Plot: A con artist and his protege arrive at the freakshow with nefarious plans. Bette and Dot still hate each other. Bearded Lady gets bad news. And, finally, ripping itself off completely Freakshow reboots Coven's Danny Huston plotline about a ghostly mass murderer from the past being unintentionally summoned to visit our makeshift family of weirdos.

Episode Mvp: Kathy Bates. Ethel visits a doctor and learns she only has a year to live. »

Is Jamie Brewer Coming Back For American Horror Story: Freak Show?

23 October 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you're an American Horror Story fan, you'll know that the show underwent magnificent changes for its third season, Coven. For the first time since it started airing, it lightened up on the horror and added in a heavy dose of camp. There was an epic shift in the costumes, and costume designer Lou Eyrich even won an Emmy for best costumes. And then, of course, there was Miss Robichaux's Academy For Exceptional Young Ladies. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of American Horror Story: Coven, Jamie Brewer recently sat down for a group interview and gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the season. Keep scrolling to see what we found out. Brewer might be coming back for Freak Show. When we asked Brewer if she'd be back for the show's fourth season, she acted coy, saying, "Possibly! I really am curious about it." Some of Coven's scenes forced Brewer to face her fears. »

Why Even Stevie Nicks Couldn’t Save American Horror Story Season 3

23 October 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

There have been three episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show (last night’s Halloween installment was the show’s third), and so far, I’ve enjoyed each one of them. It appears that, at least throughout the beginning of this season, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have rediscovered what made the first two seasons of American Horror Story so effective by providing us damaged characters with interesting stories to tell and enough weird and wacky other stuff (like an unknown man in a black latex bodysuit or a killer Santa Claus played Ian McShane) to keep us entertained. And really, that’s all we ask for from Ahs: to entertain us. And that’s also exactly how American Horror Story Season 3, Coven, did not deliver—it was boring. But how did Coven, which had so much potential when it started, become a mind-numbing, convoluted slog by the end of its thirteen episodes? »

‘The Flash,’ ‘Walking Dead’ Top October Social Media TV Buzz

23 October 2014 2:14 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Research firm Way to Blue has gathered numbers from the first two weeks of October to illustrate the social buzz behind fall’s new shows.

Not surprisingly, topping the list in both overall buzz and intent-to-view is CW’s “The Flash,” starring Grant Gustin.  The superhero spin-off of “Arrow” topped all three of NBC’s new comedies combined in generating the most hype via social media ahead of its premiere.

Showtime’s newest drama “The Affair” also finds itself ranked among new series, in between ABC’s family laffer “Cristela,” and CBS’s thriller “Stalker.”

Among returning series topping the social media ladder are ratings juggernauts “The Walking Dead” and “American Horror Story,” followed swiftly by three CW series, likely banking on their younger audience for social chatter.

Real Clown Killers That Put American Horror Story's Twisty to Shame

23 October 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's indisputable that Twisty, the murderous clown on American Horror Story: Freak Show, is a straight-up nightmare, but he's not real. That's right, you can all rest easy because he's not real. However, terrible news: clown killers have existed. John Wayne Gacy is by far the most infamous of the clown killers, but there have been others. Given that Halloween is approaching, now is a good time to take a look back at some terrifying real American horror stories involving twisted clowns. Warning: this post contains really disturbing information. John Wayne Gacy As I mentioned before, Gacy is a highly notable American serial killer who was widely known as the "Killer Clown." Gacy's alter ego was Pogo the Clown, and he made a living working at children's parties. In 1980, he was convicted of murdering 33 young men between the years of 1972 and 1978. Though he stabbed his first victim to death, most died of asphyxiation or strangulation, »

Jessica Lange sang Lana Del Rey's "Gods & Monsters" on Wednesday night's episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

Ryan Murphy had teased the actress' Lana Del Rey cover a few weeks ago and Elsa's performance does not disappoint.

American Horror Story, Ep. 4.03, “Edward Mordrake (Part One)” movingly explores character emotions

23 October 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show, Episode 3, “Edward Mordrake (Part One)”

Written by James Wong

Directed by Michael Uppendahl

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Et on FX

Despite having a premise that would appear to push the high camp of this season even further, “Edward Mordrake (Part 1)” features some of the most touching and genuinely emotional moments seen in the season thus far. The titular character (Wes Bentley) is an English nobleman and talented composer. While these biographical details would appear to put him on the path to success, the second face on the back of his head lands him a stint in an insane asylum, followed by a gig as a freak show performer, which ends abruptly when he kills his fellow cast members and hangs himself (a tale creepily recounted by Ethel). His ghost is rumored to haunt freak shows that perform on Halloween, which is when the episode takes place. »
