Angela Bassett is going for the natural horror hat trick. Bassett has signed up for her third straight stint on American Horror Story – joining Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Wes Bentley and Chloë Sevigny on American Horror Story: Hotel.
Follow the jump for details (such as they are with this show).
There have been a lot of horror movies that were set in medicine. Few have achieved the kind of off-kilter weirdness of The Lazarus Effect wherein a group of research scientists who, while trying to find a way to enable first responders to bring a person back from the brink after a more extended period of time, stumble onto a substance which, when combined with electric pulses, actually bring a dead being back to life.
American Horror Story: Freak Show (FX, Wednesdays, 10/9C) is built around a once proud freak show that has settled into the community of Jupiter, Florida in hopes of building a destination attraction that can survive the inroads being made by television. Things are complicated by a series of gruesome murders that may, or may not, be connected with the show.
While it certainly doesn’t give anything away plot-wise, the first official extended trailer for FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show certainly gives us a good look at many of the show’s characters. Does it look a wee bit freaky? Yes, yes it does.
Check it out after the jump. American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on October 8th.
On last week’s episode of American Horror story [FX, Wednesdays, 10/9C], we learned that the horribly disfigured Larry Harry – aka Larry the Burn Guy – had been lying to Ben Harmon from the beginning.
Shortly thereafter, I had the opportunity to take part in a conference call Q&A with the actor who plays Larry, Denis O’Hare. He talked about the revelation, teased further developments and discussed how he approaches the role.
