American Horror Story: Cult

Image
It's official. The seventh season of American Horror Story is titled "Cult" as revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. So far the teaser imagery includes swaying clowns, honeycombs, bee swarms, and American flags. Fan favorites Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Frances Conroy are returning, and joining them are series newcomers Billy Eichner, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Colton Hayes and yes, Lena Dunham (for one episode). The election-themed season will premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 10/9c and will run for 11 episodes. Here's a preview of some of the horrors we'll face, plus sign up at AHS7.com for exclusive content. https://youtu.be/6v0ISjTugh4

Blumhouse & The Hauntist Blogs

The highly successful Blumhouse Productions has churned out hit after hit.... Get Out, Split, Hush, Ouija: Origin of Evil, The Purge, Insidious, and Paranormal Activity,  has been running what is easily the most entertaining horror site on the internet. I know it sounds odd but instead of filling their site with fluff about their films (movie posters, press releases, blah blah blah), they've dedicated the space to "the celebration of all things scary." This includes the best horror shorts, news, behind the scenes, hilarious posts (like the cannibal doll from Mattel ), Creepy Pasta highlights, real paranormal stories, and even a podcast that's quite entertaining.

The Mist ~ Early Review

After three episodes of Spike TV's adaptation of the The Mist it's clear this is a very different beast from the one Stephen King wrote. In fact, only a few plot points are the same: the fog, a military installation, and sequestered folks. The characters run from bland to blander (although I love Frances Conroy), and the non-action is split into two locations, a church and a mall (is that supposed to be an allegory?). And unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we will get any of the fantastical monsters from the novella (and brilliant 2007 movie) as I fear that the mist itself is "the monster" as some sort of ecological terror. The mystery seems less interesting this time probably because so far not much has happened. I'm not certain that this particular story lends itself to episodic and compelling storytelling, and the format is making it crawl along at a snail's pace. Already I see the strain of the Under The Dome curse (taking a singular incident
