American Horror Story: Coven – Connie Britton Talks Possible Return; Ryan Murphy Talks Things to Come



Post Thumb:


American Horror Story: Coven - Connie Britton Talks Possible Return; Ryan Murphy Talks Things to Come“American Horror Story” is known for its recurring cast, but one member from Year 1 who has yet to return is Connie Britton. However, that could change…

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Britton was asked if there’s any chance we’ll see her as part of the “Coven.” She said, “I hope so. I’ve actually have been talking to them this season because they’re down in New Orleans and I’m in Nashville. [I’ve] said, ‘Okay, let’s see if we can try to figure this out.'”

RS countered with, “So you have your pointy witch hat ready?”

Laughing, Britton said, “I’m like, ‘I’ll put that on and jump on a plane and go to New Orleans.’ Yes, I would do that. As long as we can figure it out with both productions, I’m in. I hope it happens.”

We hope it happens, too!

Now, as for what series creator Ryan Murphy has up his sleeve for the rest of the season, he told EW, “[The Council] reappear a lot. They appear to protect the coven or to persecute those within the coven who try and hurt the coven. So with Fiona back at the helm and really out for her own interests, they show up a lot.”

And what about Spalding (Denis O’Hare)? What’s with the dolls? Murphy explains, “I was writing that when I was researching this great famous dowager who was the world’s biggest collector of dolls so I guess I was in a doll mood. I just think that people who collect dolls I find it so fascinating. We get into where he’s from. He’s from a line of men who historically their entire purpose was to serve the coven. They’re not witches. They’re not of the coven. So he’s one of them. His entire existence is to protect those witches. We establish that he has a pretty lonely life, and I just thought he would have dolls. And I also thought he would be really into granny teas and that he would be role-playing. That’s sort of how I got Denis to do it. I was like, ‘C’mon. You’re gonna play a butler without a tongue who collects dolls and has granny teas and wears bizarre, kimono chinoiserie outfits.’ I think it truly is our most bizarre creature.”

And we’ll see more of Madison as the season progresses? “Yes… keep watching because she’s dead but not gone. What Spalding puts her through in the next couple of episodes is quite remarkable… it’s the most shocking thing we’ve ever done on the show, and that happened truly by accident. I thought it was a real, bizarre Grand Guignol series of scenes; but they’re just very sick and twisted and oddly funny… Dead Madison is in many, many, many episodes.”

What’s the deal with Hank? “Well, I think everyone who has been watching thinks Cordelia’s husband is this sort of kind, stoic, Darren-from-‘Bewitched’ sort of guy. And in this episode we see, ‘Oh, that’s not who he is at all.’ Something very dark and twisted is obviously going on with him’ which we will reveal in the next couple of episodes. Needless to say he’s not what he seems… We really get into who he is and why he’s doing these things. I’m not going to say too much because we reveal it around Episode 7.”

Was it one of Marie’s minions who threw acid inn Cordelia’s eyes? “I’m not going to say who it is. But that’s all revealed. The big question is, ‘Who is out to get these witches?’ There are many, many suspects. It all ties together with the Hank thing. It’s a big to-do we have coming up… In the next episode we reveal the complete extent of her injuries, and we address will she be able to see ever.”

What’s going to happen with Kyle? “He’s clearly tormented. The girls have literally created a monster. He’s made from parts of horrible guys, like murderers and rapists. That’s what I love about Evan and that part is that he can be incredibly monstrous and then turn around and break your heart with a reaction. I think that’s what Kyle is going to have to deal with the rest of the season.

Lastly, what can he tells us about next week and the zombies bearing down on the coven? “Well, next week is interesting because obviously Marie Laveaux wants them dead so she’s summoned their voodoo zombies. The big thing of that episode is who of the witches are going to die? Fiona is at the hospital with her daughter who was blinded by acid so, without her, who amongst those girls is strong enough to rise up and protect them? So that’s a really big clue I think that helps get the audience closer to the idea of who of these girls is the Supreme. Who’s the one who Fiona should be afraid of?

“American Horror Story: Coven” Episode 3.05 – “Burn, Witch, Burn” (airs 11/6/13)
Besieged by Marie Laveau’s (Angela Bassett) army, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) unleashes a new power. Fiona (Jessica Lange) and Myrtle (Frances Conroy) clash over control of the Coven. Madame LaLaurie (Kathy Bates) is confronted by old ghosts.

Written by Jessica Sharzer; directed by Jeremy Podeswa.

KISS Meets Army of Darkness in New Comic Miniseries!



Dynamite Entertainment just announced that they are planning to bring two of their bestselling brands together in “KISS/Army of Darkness #1”. The new comic book series will unite the rock band with none other than Ash for some Deadite ass kicking.

The series will be written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims and illustrated by Ruairi Coleman. And the debut issue of “KISS/Army of Darkness” features three art covers from Kyle Strahm, Goni Montes, and Ken Haeser.

You can find all three covers below along with quotes from the creative team. After looking through all of that make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are about this new hybrid comic series in the comments below or on social media!

With Ash vs. The Army of Darkness, Chris and I were given kind of carte blanche to do whatever we wanted to the world of AOD, and we went for broke,” Co-writer Chad Bowers says. “We introduced some new characters and concepts, and built a legacy for Ash’s comics adventures that I’m immensely proud of, but not in a million years could I have guessed we’d get to continue that momentum with the added bonus of tossing the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band into the mix! I’ve been in the tank for KISS since I was in middle school. I remember buying the KISS tribute album, KISS My Ass for the Lemonheads (they covered Plaster Caster), which lead to me picking up Greatest Hits, and so on. But when I found out there was a KISS comic with blood in it, I signed up for life! Of course, I adore the songs (literally listening to Do You Love Me right now), but I’m just as obsessed with the way KISS transcends the music to become something of a genre themselves. It’s something I think about a lot, honestly, so no surprise, it’s a big part of our story too!”

“When it comes to Army of Darkness, I guess you could say that Ash is a bit of a gambler, but he’s nobody’s fool,” Co-writer Chris Sims says. “And since our first story was set back at Alan Shepard High, we’re looking forward to showing him some things that you can’t learn in school. Okay, okay, I’ll stop with the deep-cut lyrics now, but for real — if you thought Deadites at Homecoming and the Supernatural Military-Adjacent Response Team were taking Ash in a new direction, just wait until you see how we team him up with the Starchild, Space Ace, the Demon, and the Catman. In the grand tradition of the film, we’re tearing up the entire space-time continuum and if you think you know how weird this is gonna get… well, you sure know somethin’!”

“Having done some work for Dynamite in the past, I’ve really been wanting to get my foot in the door here for a long time so I can play in the sandbox of the amazing licenses they have,” Artist Ruairi Coleman says. “Chief among those, and high up on my bucket list, is Army of Darkness: Hail to the king, baby! So, when I was offered the job of drawing the KISS/Army of Darkness crossover, I couldn’t believe my luck! The concept is totally bonkers, but in a way, that would make complete sense in the world of Army of Darkness. Thinking about it, I’m surprised it hasn’t been done already and I’m honored (and more than a little intimidated) to be the guy who draws it.”

“After a more than 40-year career, KISS continues to be one of rock’s most celebrated bands, while Army of Darkness continues to be a staple in the comic book industry. We’re both honored to have the opportunity to work so closely with Gene and Paul to bring their world-renowned alter-egos to comics alongside our very own Ashy Slashy,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “The raging guitar chords and pyrotechnic spectacle of their stage shows could have come straight from the pages of the Necronomicon, and this epic battle between The Demon and Deadites will appeal to the hellions in all of us!”

Issue #1 will be available on digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

The KISS/Army of Darkness miniseries event hits February 2018.


KISS is on top of the world and rocking faces until the night disciples of The Destroyer show up and the band disappears. With the tour canceled, a young Ash misses one of the most important events of his life that will change his destiny. Now the Chosen One has to get back on the right path and join the KISS ARMY OF DARKNESS!

Jason Lives Director Pitched Follow-Up: Jason Vs Cheech and Chong



One of my favorite entries in the Friday the 13th series is director ‘s Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. The mixture of old-school gothic horror and comedy is always a welcome treat around these parts.

But why wasn’t McLoughlin asked to write and direct the follow-up?

Actually, it turns out he was asked to follow up Jason Lives, McLoughlin recently told Mick Garris on the Post Mortem podcast.

But his pitch – Jason vs Cheech and Chong – didn’t go over so well…

“[Frank Mancuso Jr.] wanted me to do another film after we did Jason,” McLoughlin says. “And I said, ‘What are you thinking? I don’t know what it could be now.’ And he said, ‘Well, what do you think about Freddy (Krueger) and Jason?’ And I go, ‘But Freddy’s at New Line and the guys at Paramount have [Jason].’ And it’s like, ‘Well, we’re going to try and see if we can work something out.’ So, I started thinking about that, going, It doesn’t make sense. I mean he lives in one realm and — you know, I take this stuff very seriously, what realm a monster’s supposed to stay in. And he came back, he goes, ‘Eh, forget it, it’s not going to work anyway.’ And I said, ‘You know what? You guys own Cheech and Chong. What if we do Cheech and Chong-meets-Jason? They’re like camp counselors or something. It’s like, ‘Hey, man, I saw Jason out there.’ ‘No, man, that’s a myth.’ But he said, ‘You know what? No.’”

Too bad. While I don’t know how well a Cheech and Chong/Friday the 13th flick would go, with McLoughlin at the helm, the film would have at least been funny as hell.

Plus we already got these two knuckleheads in Part III.

Are you upset we never got Tom McLoughlin’s Jason vs Cheech and Chong? Make sure to let us know in the comments below or on social media!

You can buy Friday the 13th: Part VI – Jason Lives on Blu-ray HERE.
