The NBC ‘Hannibal’'s bold choice to introduce ‘Boardwalk Empire’ star Michael Pitt as iconic literary baddie Mason Verger paid off in gruesome spades, but it seems season 3 will have a new face to go along with Mason’s…well, “new” face. Pitt has opted to leave the NBC drama behind, and will be replaced by ‘The Divide’ star Joe Anderson.

by Kevin Fitzpatrick December 19, 2014 @ 11:59 AM
‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ has proven just a bit more cogent than last season’s ‘Coven’ (while simultaneously connecting itself to the ‘Asylum’), but the FX horror drama’s January return will accomplish something no other ‘Horror Story’ has dared.

‘It Follows’ Trailer: Prepare Yourself For One of 2015’s Best Horror Movies

by Jacob Hall December 18, 2014 @ 12:57 PM
David Robert Mitchell’s ‘It Follows’ made the festival rounds throughout 2014 and the general consensus was that it was one of the scariest films of the year. Well, technically it’s one of the scariest films of next year, since it won’t actually open in theaters until 2015. But believe us: This is one horror movie worth the wait, and the freaky new domestic trailer should do a fine job of whetting your appetite.

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Review: “Orphans”

by Britt Hayes December 18, 2014 @ 12:11 PM
For the second week in a row, ‘American Horror Story’ has delivered a pretty solid episode—it could be due in part to the increasingly smaller number of carnival performers combined with the show’s rotating system, which makes at least one cast member (or attraction, in the parlance of a sideshow) sit out each week in order to focus its narrative efforts elsewhere. And maybe “Orphans” works because it tells a story that’s genuinely sad, which accentuates the horror of the hour. And maybe I also think this episode is great because Lily Rabe reprises her role as Sister Mary Eunice, and she is a total queen.

David Cronenberg’s ‘The Fly’ Gets a New Sequel in Comic Book Form

IDW Publishing
This week in sequels you weren’t aware that you wanted, comic book imprint IDW Publishing is releasing ‘The Fly: Outbreak,’ a follow-up to David Cronenberg’s 1986 film—which was based on a 1957 short story of the same name, which was also made into a film in 1958. A sequel to Cronenberg’s ‘The Fly’ was released in 1989 without the involvement of the director, and it doesn’t appear that he had much—if anything—to do with this new comic book sequel, either.

by Kevin Fitzpatrick December 16, 2014 @ 10:25 AM
Uncertain though we were what to make of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ spinning off a “companion series” in 2015, we had to admit our excitement for the possibility of exploring a new corner of the zombie apocalypse. Now, the setting for the AMC monster-drama’s forthcoming spinoff has been revealed, and yes, the City of Angels has officially gone to hell. Well...further, anyway.

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Review: “Tupperware Party Massacre”

by Britt Hayes December 10, 2014 @ 10:52 PM
Great news, everyone: The horror and darkness have creeped back into ‘American Horror Story’ at last. And while the continuing narrative of Jimmy the Hero vs. Dandy the Villain doesn’t quite manage to be something greater than the sum of its parts, the ‘Freak Show’ delivers the first solid episode in weeks. The ghosts of the past invade the present with a surreal quality that echoes the way Jimmy’s brain is clouded by alcohol, or the way Dell—through misery and frustrating uncertainty—writes and rewrites his intended suicide letter. But it’s Dandy and Stanley who bring the real discomfort and unease to “Tupperware Party Massacre.”
