American Horror Story got plenty of road to reinvent itself with an additional two-season renewal, but don’t expect any major shakeups in Season 7. Not only are series staples Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters confirmed to return, but producers promise yet another mystery theme (ugh) for Season 7.
Our long national nightmare has finally come to an end, just in time for a new national nightmare to begin. American Horror Story has finally premiered its sixth season, revealing the show’s newest theme as My Roanoke Nightmare. Find out what woodland scares went down in the premiere and what to expect from the coming season of American Horror Story!
It’s no surprise that Ryan Murphy loves to sprinkle horror movie references throughout ‘American Horror Story.’ Remember that time Kit Walker was tortured ‘A Clockwork Orange’-style? How about the use of Bernard Herrmann’s ‘Psycho’ score to amp up the creep factor in one of the scariest episodes of ‘Murder House?’ Or the time Twisty popped out of the hedges à la Michael Myers?
The most pleasant surprise of X-Men: Days of Future Past was Quicksilver, the speedy Marvel mutant played by Evan Peters. Although early promo photos made the character look, well, kind of lame, his big action sequence proved to be the best part of the previous X-sequel. It’s no surprise, then, that Peters has one of the best scenes in X-Men: Apocalypse, and a new video goes behind the scenes to show you how director Bryan Singer and his crew pulled it off.
We have a pretty stacked summer ahead of us, kicking off in May with Captain America: Civil War, followed by the (hopefully) equally epic X-Men: Apocalypse. The mutants of First Class and Days of Future Past are no longer the new kids on the block, as younger versions of Jean Grey, Scott Summers and more are getting in on the action in the upcoming sequel. To better familiarize you with the lineup, 20th Century Fox has released several new character posters which boast various mutants old and new along with their respective powers.
If you are unfamiliar with the X-Men comics and Quicksilver’s origins, then you’ll probably consider this bit of news a pretty big spoiler — turn back now. And if you are familiar with the comics, then you’ll be happy to know that Evan Peters has confirmed the identity of Quicksilver’s father and promises that his big X-Men: Apocalypse sequence will be a worth follow-up to the scene in Days of Future Past.
Like the trailer for Captain America: Civil War, the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse has a whole lot to unpack, from new characters to Oscar Isaac’s ungodly villain and his four horsemen, and yes, the bald-ification of James McAvoy’s Professor X. To help you digest all of this, director Bryan Singer has offered a breakdown of some of the bigger happenings in the new sequel.
Now situated at the cavernously bonkers Hotel Cortez, American Horror Story may one day run out of spooky locations with which to set its assured future. Series star Evan Peters however, following his “Chutes and Ladders” debut last night, puts in another vote to take Ryan Murphy’s horror vision to the terrors of outer space, and we’re inclined to agree.
If you thought Wednesday’s shocking premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel was scary, undoubtedly the series’ most gruesome episode yet, be warned – the rest of the season is bound to get even more terrifying. We know this not only because co-creator Brad Falchuk confirmed Hotel will be the darkest season yet (and that means dark, considering Asylum), but because AHS is always based on real incidents and people. If we look no further than the real-life location Season 5's Hotel Cortez was inspired by we’ll discover just how many horrors are likely on the way.
Sure, American Horror Story: Hotel can serve up spooky teasers all the live-long day, but when it comes to footage, FX is finally allowing fans to check in. Ring the bell for your official first look at Season 5, and preview what Sarah Paulson calls the bloodiest, hottest season yet.
