American Horror Story: Cult – New Artwork, Teasers, Fan Gathering, and a Few More Details



We have a boatload of new assets for the upcoming “American Horror Story: Cult” for you today so let’s get right to it! On tap are another poster; more teasers, including a few script pages (from unlocking this week’s tasks on the official “American Horror Story: Cult” website); info on a gathering taking place this Friday in Philly; and a few more details about what the season will be about.

Let’s start with those last two items… There’ll be a fan get-together this Friday, August 11th, at 7:00 PM in Philadelphia’s Dilworth Park. We’re not entirely sure what will be taking place so if you attend, be sure to share what happens with us here!

As for those additional details that have been revealed over the past day or two, per Nerdist, at the recent “Women of American Horror Story” panel held on the Fox Studios lot during the 2017 Television Critics Association summer press tour, new cast member Alison Pill teased that “this particular season has a streak of paranoia that’s infectious.”

Executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall explained that although early reports were that the season begins on the night of the recent US Presidential election, “[I]t’s more about what’s going on in our world around us [than it is about Trump vs. Clinton]… we talk about the streak of paranoia, and our idea launches from that point. It’s not what you think it is, and I’m not trying to be cagey. As with all good horror and suspense, knowing less is actually so much more because it’s going to unfold for you. It’s an element in our launch point.”

Woodall also succinctly said that fans can expect to see: “Bloody tension, a well-cooked meal, and an exciting trip to the grocery store.”

Pill was joined by fellow “AHS” newcomers Billie Lourd and Leslie Grossman along with vets Sarah Paulson and Adina Porter. Paulson joked that a married lesbian couple would be played by herself and Pill, following up her comment with, “That may or may not be true.”  (Writer’s Note: Their characters do share the same last name so at this point, anything is possible!)

Porter revealed that she’s playing a broadcast news journalist while Lourd, who first worked with Murphy on “Scream Queens,” promised, “This is straight-up horror drama. It’s definitely less of my comedic side, more of my real dark side. This time I actually have emotions, which is real exciting for me. [It’s] extremely different [from ‘Scream Queens’]. ‘Scream Queens’ is completely hyper real. This show is based in insane reality that I don’t want to be a part of. My character is more of a human this time.”

And that’s about it as far as intel on “Cult,” but below you’ll find those script pages we mentioned, which provide a few additional clues. Check ’em out along with another poster that debuted on the show’s Twitter feed and the latest video teasers from

The new season kicks off on September 5th. Returning stars include Sarah Paulson (as Ally Mayfair-Richards), Evan Peters (as Kai), Frances Conroy, Mare Winningham, Cheyenne Jackson (as Dr. Rudy Vincent), Emma Roberts, and Adina Porter. The newcomers announced so far are Lena Dunham, Billy Eichner (as Harrison Wilton), Billie Lourd (as Winter Anderson), Alison Pill (as Ivy Mayfair-Richards), Colton Haynes (as Detective Samuels), and Leslie Grossman.

Netflix to Tell The Frankenstein Chronicles in the States



There’s still a big part of me that wonders why Universal – or anyone for that matter – has not been able to reboot classics like The Mummy, Dracula, and Frankenstein. Maybe they’re trying too hard? Maybe they keep putting the wrong people at the helm?

Look at del Toro’s The Shape of Water… It’s pretty much a new version of The Creature of the Black Lagoon with a heavier emphasis on the relationship between monster and chosen mate. Even though there are a couple of hokey parts, it really works and is excellent. So maybe we need to look elsewhere throughout the world to meet with success. Case in point: “The Frankenstein Chronicles.”

Variety is reporting that the hit six-episode UK series starring Sean Bean will be coming Stateside and more via the ever-growing streaming service Netflix.

This deal opens the way for Netflix to make further seasons should it resonate with its U.S. and global subscribers.

“The Frankenstein Chronicles” is a re-imagining of Mary Shelley’s classic novel. Set in 1830s London, Bean (“Game of Thrones”) plays John Marlott, a war veteran and river policeman. Season 1 of the serialized show sees him investigating the case of a corpse made up of body parts from different children and finding the matter involves senior establishment figures and demonic forces.

Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn Returning to the Horror Genre



Know what’s funny? We horror fans have known how good James Gunn was all along. It just took the rest of the world time to catch up! Now that Gunn has made his big Hollywood bones with his two Guardians of the Galaxy flicks, he’s returning to the genre to produce a new horror flick! Oh, happy day!

Word came across our desks that Gunn has signed on to produce an untitled horror feature with The H Collective. It was written by James’ brother Brian and cousin Mark Gunn. James will produce the project in between writing the highly anticipated feature Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 and starting production. Gunn’s longtime collaborator David Yarovesky will direct.

The H Collective will fully finance the project and produce alongside Gunn and his shingle, Troll Court Entertainment. Brian and Mark Gunn, Dan Clifton, and The H Collective’s Nic Crawley will executive produce.

The project is expected to go into production in the spring of 2018 and brings Gunn back to his horror roots. The filmmaker, whose credits included mostly fan-favorite horror gems like Slither prior to writing and directing Guardians of the Galaxy, is responsible for turning the Marvel property into one of the most memorable franchises in the Marvel universe.

More as we get it!
