A Few Clues for American Horror Story: Coven Lie Within This Behind-the-Scenes Look at AHS: Asylum's Opening SequenceDying to learn more about “American Horror Story: Coven”? Then read on for a few clues about the show in this behind-the-scenes look at the Emmy-nominated main titles for “American Horror Story: Asylum.”

Before they get to “Coven,” “American Horror Story” co-creator Ryan Murphy and title designer Kyle Cooper explain the objective behind the “Asylum” sequence. “I’ve always been obsessed with main titles; I really feel like it’s an art form,” Murphy says. “It tells you what the viewing experience ahead is going to be.”

Along those lines Cooper adds, “If you can make a title sequence that elicits an emotional reaction, that’s a successful title sequence.” For “Coven” the typography that has become synonymous with the series will return, though Cooper and the producers are “trying to make something completely different.”

Murphy used existing sets and locations to create the dark imagery featured in “Asylum”‘s opening credits and remarks that more often than not the online fans were correct as they tried to decipher the visuals. “You have to watch it ten times because every frame is a clue about what the season will be,” he explains. “And ever year it sort of has a different tone, a different look, a different concept. By the last frame of the main title for ‘Coven,’ I think you’ll really have an idea of what the last frame of the ‘Coven’ season will be.”

Sounds like we have our work cut out for us! Look for the “American Horror Story: Coven” series premiere on October 9th. “American Horror Story: Asylum” is heading home on Blu-ray and DVD one day earlier, October 8th, from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

“American Horror Story: Coven” Upcoming Episodes:

  • Episode 3.01 – “Bitchcraft” (09-Oct-2013)
  • Episode 3.02 – “Boy Parts” (16-Oct-2013)
  • Episode 3.03 – “The Replacements” (23-Oct-2013)

    Flying Wolf! New Rampage Trailer Swoops In

    Published

    on

    Last month, we shared the crazy-ass trailer for “The Rock vs Three Huge Animals” movie Rampage. And we were all surprised by how serious the movie looks.

    Well if that trailer wasn’t enough to get you at least interested in watching titanic beasts curb-stomping entire cities, then maybe today’s new trailer will do the trick.

    Give it watch below and then let us know what you think!

    Rampage is directed by Brad Peyton and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

    The film hits theaters April 20.

    Synopsis:
    Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators.

    As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
