An unfortunate announcement for those familiar with Rose Siggins and American Horror Story: Freak Show, as the notable actor behind one of FX’s most memorable AHS characters has passed away. The real-life amputee and mother of two was remembered as a proud participant in the Ryan Murphy production as “Legless Suzi,” also documented in Ripley’s Believe It or Not and Extraordinary People.

Ridley Scott is really committed to this whole Alien sequel thing. Although he once said that Prometheus was more of a spiritual prequel, the director’s sequel to that film has evolved — much like the Xenomorphs — into an actual prequel to the Alien series. As such, Scott says Alien: Covenant will feature all the different stages of Xenomorphs, from the eggs to the chest-bursters to the full-blown Queen Aliens. So basically, yeah, this is an Alien movie.
How many movies began their existence as an April Fools’ joke? At least one now.
Five seasons in, American Horror Story: Hotel has become something of a nexus point for the series, dipping back through multiple seasons and seemingly unifying some core characters. Now, it seems one of the Hotel residents will return for the finale as their Season 1 Murder House counterpart, and might raise a few eyebrows along the way.
After it was announced that Tom Cruise would be starring in The Mummy reboot came rumors that the Mummy itself in the movie might actually be a woman. Well, Universal have kept their promise and gender-swapped the gauze-wrapped monster, casting Kingsman star Sofia Boutella (the sword-legged Gazelle) as the new Mummy.
The release of Hannibal Season 3 on Blu-ray has served a banquet unto itself, between revelations of who cooked that finale leg, and our own full interview with Bryan Fuller, but one particular aspect of the finale has had fans salivating for months. See the alternate take of Hannibal’s big finale cliffhanger that nearly saw Will and our beloved Dr. Lecter locking lips!
As with prior seasons, Hannibal ended Season 3 conclusively enough to satisfy its fans, while still leaving plenty of room to return. The race to re-seat Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen at Bryan Fuller’s table has long since cooled, but Mikkelsen thinks it might not happen if Hannibal isn’t revived in the next year.
The fun of American Horror Story (if there’s any left to be had) lies in charting the actors that resurface from year to year, some taking central roles in each installment, and others weaving intermittently. Coven and Freak Show star Emma Roberts apparently missed out on her chance for Hotel, but will likely return for another round in Season 6, it seems.
Telltale Games’ Walking Dead adaptations have more often told stories within the comic realm adjacent to the characters we know, though fan-favorite Michonne will finally get the new spotlight in a new series, and with a familiar voice at that. Orange is the New Black breakout Samira Wiley will lend her voice to the katana-wielding zombie killer, as Telltale sets a new Walking Dead game for February.
In an effort to prove their commitment to this whole “shared universe” of classic monster movie reboots thing, Universal has reportedly set a release date for their remake of The Wolf Man. The redo of the iconic werewolf monster flick will arrive in 2018, a year after the studio’s new version of The Mummy, which may or may not be eyeing Tom Cruise to star.
