Sarah Paulson’s Lana Winters to Appear in American Horror Story: Roanoke

Ryan Murphy has a surprise for anyone who spent this Halloween wondering to him or herself, “Gee, could American Horror Story: Roanoke get any more messy or convoluted?” In case the jarring transformation of this season from a slow crawling ghost story with some integrity to a Thanksgiving feast of every bad reality show you’ve ever seen wasn’t enough for you, Murphy has announced plans to ramp up the ridiculousness:

American Horror Story: Roanoke Mid-Season Review

American Horror Story: Roanoke reached the mid-season mark at an unlikely place in terms of the history of the franchise.  The fact that episodes one through five of season six  ended with a somewhat coherent and highly original take on the popular ghost documentaries that are found on SyFy, the Travel Channel, and Destination America (along with the requisite “dramatic re-enactment” story-within-a-story approach) was a true achievement for the series.  Unfortunately, the debut of the “real story” twist in episode six does more to detract from the high water mark established in the first half of the season than humanly possible. read more

FX Announces American Horror Story Season 7

Earlier today FX announced that its top rated and Emmy Award winning series, American Horror Story will be back for a seventh season.  The brain child of creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the show has reinvented itself each time out for the last six seasons.

This current season, which focuses on a couple who have recently relocated to Roanoke Island in North Carolina, feels grittier and creepier than the previous incarnations.  FX’s John Landgraf told Deadline, “Ryan, Brad and their team of remarkable writers have done an amazing job of keeping American Horror Story endlessly inventive, shocking and entertaining and we are honored to move ahead with them on the seventh installment.” Hardcore fans of American Horror Story will debate for hours which season is the best.  With the exit of the legendary Jessica Lange after Season 4’s Freakshow, many felt the show would falter. However, with 15 Emmy wins, including nods to Sarah Paulson, who manages to be American Horror Story’s secret weapon and an absolute chameleon each season, the show is not going anywhere anytime soon. read more

AHS Attempts to Misdirect Fans with Creepy New Teasers

American Horror Story has released several new teasers to titillate fans about the theme of season six. However, all that is certain is that the answer lies in only one of the recent trailers and AHS showmakers won’t be revealing it.

FX CEO John Landgraf spoke with IndieWire about the new teasers, commenting, “One is accurate; all the rest are misdirect.” The various teasers are actually “hypothetical themes” for the season. Landgraf added, “We decided, Ryan and I and [marketing president] Stephanie Gibbons, that it would be really fun this year… to keep it a mystery. There is a theme and a setting and a place and time, but we’re not going to reveal it.” read more
