Emma Roberts has been understandably scarce from American Horror Story in recent years, but with Scream Queens wailing its last, the Coven and Freak Show star is joining the Cult. Ryan Murphy confirms that Roberts will be back and “ready for action” in Season 7.
Osgood Perkins made his directorial debut this past October with the staid, eerie Netflix release I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, except not really. When attendees at the Toronto International Film Festival lined up to catch that film’s world premiere back in September, many were reminiscing about the proceedings one year earlier, where Perkins’ real directorial debut February screened. The horror indie made a positive impression on critics and landed a deal with boutique distributor A24, but floated around post-production purgatory for the entirety of 2016. But at last, parties intrigued by murmurs of this creepy festival standout will get their wish — the film since retitled The Blackcoat’s Daughter finally has a release date.
Judging by a trailer that seemingly reveals just about everything (including the bodies of its leads), Nerve takes the premise of indie thrillers like Cheap Thrills and the lesser-seen 13 Sins and re-frames it with the treacherous world of a little place called The Internet. With that particular distinction in mind, it shouldn’t surprise you that Nerve was helmed by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, the directing duo behind Catfish (the movie, not the TV show).
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.
The fifth iteration of FX’s American Horror Story hasn’t yet filmed enough Hotel footage for a proper trailer, but Ryan Murphy and the expansive cast took to TCA with plenty of new details on the fall premiere. Not only do we know what each character will be, we’ve also learned that past Horror Story characters will check in over time. Plus, free poster!
Ahead of their appearance at Comic-Con 2015, Scream Queens has debuted a staggering 15 new character posters, properly dripping with blood and promising a slasher-good time for Ryan Murphy’s latest horror anthology series. And although American Horror Story has its own peculiar sense of humor, Murphy’s new series promises outright hilarity.
FOX hasn’t exactly been shy about promoting Ryan Murphy’s new Scream Queens series with plenty of promos and photos, but in the interest of keeping blood pumping until fall, the full trailer has finally arrived. See star-studded Scream Queens from the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Emma Roberts and more, and find out who takes a lawnmower to the face!
