Well, we knew this day was coming. The moment 'American Horror Story' revealed that season 4 would inhabit a terrifying 'Freak Show,' we knew that the worst of horror's worst would be on the way: clowns. And while we still don't know exactly what this year's big bad clown killer "Twisty" looks like, the latest teasers and details will already have you running for the hills.
With the ongoing success of the 'V/H/S' series, horror anthologies are officially back. There's something wonderfully old school about these types of movies, where instead of one narrative, we follow three to five completely separate stories. A great horror anthology is just pure horror pleasure: you get several great stories for the price of one. The first 'V/H/S' film brought this concept to the 21st century by making every segment found footage and 'V/H/S 2' upped the ante in every way. So the third film in the franchise has a high bar to surpass and the new trailer makes us confident that they're doing everything in their power to do so.
FX's upcoming 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' has continued churning out cryptic teasers and gruesome posters as expected, though we haven't really seen much of the series itself before today. Now, meet the season 4 cast and check out our first genuine 'Freak Show' footage with a new FX trailer and photos from the first three episodes!
It's been a few weeks since we've seen very much from 'The Walking Dead' season 5, at least after the inaugural round of context-less character photos, but no more! Rick and the other trapped Terminus folk are finding "No Sanctuary" in the full gallery of October 12 premiere photos, and their grill-happy captors are definitely screwing with the wrong people, by the looks of things.
If you're still interested in the idea of a 'Paranormal Activity 5,' you may not be after you hear its new title. Paramount Pictures not only announced the fifth installment's release date for 2015, but also that we'll apparently be entering 'The Ghost Dimension.'
I'm deep in 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' country. 40 years ago, director Tobe Hooper, a skeleton crew and a ragtag cast of unknown actors made horror history in these parts. Cinema, and the great state of Texas, were never the same.
'I Know What You Did Last Summer' was one of the beloved horror franchises of the '90s and helped define the slasher genre for the decade, so we should have seen this one coming: Sony Pictures will introduce this classic to newer generations with an 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' reboot. What? 'Scream' is still kinda going on, so...
Kim Ji-oon's 'I Saw the Devil' is one of the gnarliest thrillers ever made, a hyper-violent plunge into depravity and mayhem that has to be seen to be believed. It's one of the best recent examples of just how crazy South Korean filmmaking can get, and it's tough to imagine any Hollywood film getting away with what this one does.
And, of course, it's getting an American remake. But let's not despair quite yet. It seems to be in good hands.
A couple of weeks ago we reported on a reboot of the 'Underworld' franchise, which delivered its fourth film -- 'Underworld: Awakening' -- in 2012. But it seems that news was only slightly premature as Lakeshore Entertainment is moving ahead with a sequel, not a reboot, and they're bringing back 'Awakening' star Theo James to reprise the role of vampire David for the fifth film.
Three seasons in, we've gotten accustomed to the fact that FX's 'American Horror Story' reboots year after year with its cast in different roles of a new story. And while this year's 'Freak Show' follows the same trend, Ryan Murphy's horror franchise will at last extend a bit of connective tissue between universes, bringing a fan-favorite 'American Horror Story: Asylum' character back into the fold.
