Rating: R Stars: Mark Strong, Taissa Farmiga, Brian Cox, Saskia Reeves, Richard Dillane, Indira Varma Writer: Guy Holmes, story by Guy Holmes & Martha Holmes Director: Jorge Dorado Distributor: Vertical Entertainment Release Date: June 6, 2014 Remote viewing, discussed in newsreel footage early in ANNA, is a real technique developed by the military. There’s some dispute as to how much, or whether, it actually works, but there is documentation that the armed forces used psychics to try to mentally “see” terrain, buildings and rooms far from their physical selves. In ANNA, this technique has been enhanced, so that there are …Read On »

A&E Network held a premiere party for their new series BATES MOTEL on March 12th at SoHo House West Hollywood. BATES MOTEL is inspired by Hitchcock’s film, PSYCHO and we all remember the shower scene in that film…hard to forget. This is a prequel that will explain how Norman Bates became the Norman Bates of the film. How his psyche unravels through his teenage years and about his relationship with his mother Norma. The red carpet was in the parking garage of the building and all I can say it was really hot even though it was cold outside. Walking …Read On »

When AMERICAN HORROR STORY ended Season 1, the big twist wasn’t what happened to the characters, it’s what happened to the show. Executive producer and co-creator Ryan Murphy essentially pulled the wool over the viewers eyes and created a TV series that would reboot every year with a new story,  new characters and a new cast. At today’s TCA press tour for the FX Network, John Landgraf, President & General Manager, says that he’s excited by what Murphy is conjuring up for the completely different Season 2. “He really loves to create a new world,” says Landgraf. “You even saw …Read On »

Dutton Writer: Jessica Sharzer, series created by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk Director: Bradley Buecker Network: FX, Wednesdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: December 21, 2011 With “Afterbirth,” AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s first-season conclusion, we’re surprised that a number of characters have quasi-happy endings – that would be unendings, in several cases, as most of them are ghosts – while we’re left unsure of just how seriously to take all those promises of the apocalypse. In …Read On »

This said, a lot …Read On »

There are a plenty of ghosts and generally unwholesome entities roaming through FX’s hit AMERICAN HORROR STORY, Wednesdays at 10, but one of the most alarming-looking characters is the still-living Larry Harvey, played by Denis O’Hare. With severe burns over half his face, a fire-crippled body and a sightless eye, Larry’s appearance isn’t half as frightening as his personality – he’s a man who can justify anything if it suits his ego or his appetites. This isn’t O’Hare’s first brush with TV genre fame – he was also the vampire King of Mississippi, Russell Edgington, in Season Three of HBO’s …Read On »

Usually the show manages to combine the two, but in “Open House,” it gives us a lot more insight into the characters than it does shivers. To be …Read On »
