American Horror Story has long been one of the most in-your-face shows on TV, layering fantastical plots with cartoonish violence and knowingly over-the-top acting. Last season’s Roanoke took aim at reality TV, with mixed but generally amusing results. This season’s Cult takes aim at reality itself, and so far it’s…
The true focus of the next American Horror Story season will remain a mystery until it airs, but that doesn’t prevent us from speculating like mad. (Who would have guessed Roanoke would be about reality TV?) Today’s clue dump comes from the opening credits for Cult—which are artistically creepy in classic AHS style.
On the plus side, showrunner Ryan Murphy didn’t make us spend months guessing what the new season’s theme was going to be. Unfortunately, now that we know, we’re going to be nauseous every time we think about it.
We’ve known for awhile that American Horror Story would return for a seventh season. Today came the news that Ryan Murphy’s anthology horror show has received two more seasons on top of that.
American Horror Story, never one for being subtle, just wrapped its most ludicrous season yet. As a whole, Roanoke was ultimately more interested in whipping out format changes (while, at the same time, feeling oddly repetitive) than developing many themes beyond “We’re gonna dieeee!” and “The media are vultures!” But…
There’s seemingly nothing Ryan Murphy loves to do more than drop hints about what might happen on American Horror Story. Recently, we heard that Lady Gaga’s witchy Roanoke character would return in the future, and now we have a better idea of what else that future might entail—a big ol’ crossover that makes up an…
Fans of American Horror Story know that the fun of the show is scanning new episodes for references to other seasons—like when Lady Gaga’s character in Hotel visited the Murder House. My Roanoke Nightmare has also turned up its share of Easter eggs, and Ryan Murphy just confirmed another one involving Lady Gaga.
American Horror Story’s sixth season began with creator Ryan Murphy promising to answer “the question that’s been haunting everybody.” Obviously, he meant the secret theme, which turned out to be My Roanoke Nightmare. But it turns out the execution of the theme is far more interesting... but not necessarily good.
Ryan Murphy’s horror spoof Scream Queens returns for its second season on Sept. 20. We already knew it would shift settings—from sorority house to hospital—and add new actors, since half the cast was killed off last season. Just announced: Kirstie Alley, late of Cheers, Dancing With the Stars, and The Wrath of Khan.
In a promo entitled “We’re back, idiot hookers,” Scream Queens assures one and all that nuclear-strength mean-girl mojo will still be a major part of the Ryan Murphy horror comedy’s second season—even if circumstances have changed for the catty trio since leaving their killer-plagued sorority house.
After her Golden Globe win for American Horror Story: Hotel—and the fact that she seemed to be having a rip-roaring good time all season playing a melancholy vampire queen dripping in couture—it’s no surprise that Lady Gaga has confirmed her return to AHS’s next season.
Like a masked killer who won’t stay dead, Scream Queens will be back for a second season. But we won’t have to spend any more time on the dreaded Wallace University campus, because the new series will be set at a hospital—a pretty natural choice for Ryan “American Horror Story: Asylum” Murphy.
While actress Jamie Lee Curtis independently became a “scream queen” through her role as Laurie Strode in the Halloween franchise, she also comes by her title through heredity. In 1960, Curtis’ mother Janet Leigh delivered one of the most iconic onscreen shrieks of all time as Marion Crane in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho…
Even though it’s been said for ages that Freak Show was going to be Jessica Lange’s final season of American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy’s now saying that they’re finding a way of bringing her back.
Beyond the cast (and it just lost the werewolf, incidentally), we still don't know too much about Ryan Murphy's upcoming horror-comedy-musical (?) series Scream Queens. But here's a teaser featuring Emma Roberts in college-kid character, sassily chomping on what appears to be haunted bubblegum. Ok then!
Fox's new horror comedy show has added another well-known name to it's motley cast: Nick Jonas. He joins true scream queen Jaime Lee Curtis and Lea Michele, Joe Manganiello, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Emma Roberts, and Ariana Grande. This is an insane cast.
Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens series certainly is attracting a lot of interesting names. The horror comedy series has already landed the original Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis, and now it's picked up a whole cast of surprises.
Ryan Murphy may have (falsely) claimed to have invented the horror-comedy genre for his new show Scream Queens, but at least his casting is still spot-freaking-on. The new series welcomes the biggest Scream Queen of them all.
Horror TV series American Horror Story reboots itself every year, re-casting the handful of regular players in entirely different roles, in an entirely different location during an entirely different time period. So imagine our surprise when show co-creator said each season was connected!
While we're super optimistic about the idea behind Ryan Murphy's new female-lead, Fox horror comedy series, Scream Queens, someone needs to tell Murphy about Buffy (and Evil Dead and A-Haunting We Will Go and Beetlejuice and Cabin in the Woods).
