The makers of American Horror Story have gone to great lengths to keep the theme of the upcoming season under wraps. We know about the cast. We know that American Horror Story season 6 will bring back Lady Gaga. We also know that Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters have either been officially announced or have dropped hints they will return. On the flip side, we know series favorite Jessica Lange won't be returning for American Horror Story season 6. We even know that the start date has been pushed up to September from the usual October. But we still don't know the theme. Or do we?

"La

On set photos posted to TMZ seem to heavily point to American Horror Story season 6 focusing on one of America's greatest mysteries. Not the Bermuda Triangle (which is kind of American) and not Bigfoot (and why the hell not Bigfoot?), but the mystery of Roanoke. The most telling photo was of a tree with the word “Croatoan” carved into it. When the colony of Roanoke, with all 117 settlers, disappeared, the only clue left behind was the a similar carving.

"What

TMZ has also published pictures that seem to show a colonial era village, and their “spies” have reported cast members dressed in pilgrim garb. With all this, it seems guaranteed that American Horror Story season 6 with focus, at least partially on the lost colony. Add to that that in season one, Murder House, Sarah Paul son’s character told a fictionalized version of the Roanoke mystery. FX president John Langraf has stated that the upcoming season will be set in the present, but with echoes from the past. I'd be willing the past is set in or around Roanoke.

"Question

Other media released by the network heavily features a question mark motif. So could season 6 be titled American Horror Story Mysteries maybe? Who knows. Right now we have a lot of hints, some very defining hints, but just hints. September 14th is just two weeks away, so at least we wont have to wait long to find out!

Slasher (Series Review)— House Of Tortured Souls

Slasher (Series Review)— House Of Tortured Souls

With the third season titled Solstice having made its way to Netflix last week (May 23rd), they truly outdid it this time around and it left me guessing on who was the killer the entire time until the 8th episode. 

Let’s rewind to the beginning. Slasher is a Canadian horror anthology that was created by Aaron Martin. It made its debut on Chiller back in March 2016. 

Each season has 8 episodes. The first season is called The Executioner. It focuses on Sarah Bennett and her husband who move back into her childhood home where her parents were murdered. Sarah’s mother was pregnant with her at the time of the murders and that is when police discovered that the killer was holding Sarah after the killings. 

Sarah starts meeting with Tom Winston in prison, the man who killed her parents. It was in their conversations that you pick up that the “theme” of the murders is no other than the seven deadly sins. Each victim had a sin. He has been giving his opinions as to what each victim could have done to deserve the punishment that they received.

Through all the twists and gore in this season, it was revealed that deputy Cam was The Executioner the whole time, to which Sarah has put it all to an end. 

Season two entitled Guilty Party focuses on a horrifying secret that summer camp counselors thought they buried long ago. They all return in the middle of winter to get the body that was murdered while they were counselors, only to get a shock of their life—-they can’t find the body. 

Like every typical horror movie setting especially at a camp, each counselor gets picked off one by one. The killer does get revealed at the end with a twist. 

Lastly the third season Solstice, which is actually my favorite out of this anthology, focuses on a killer who is targeting everyone in an apartment complex where a woman committed suicide a year before, but it’s also connected with each tenant not helping a man who was being murdered. 

Normally I am good at predicting who the murderer is, but with this season anyone seems capable at that point. 

The trailer for season 3 is listed below. If you are looking for something to binge watch over the weekend, I highly recommend this series. It has a perfect amount of gore and it’s not too predictable. It’s a pretty fun watch depending how you view it.

Into The Dark: All That We Destroy (Review)

How far can a mother’s unconditional love for her child go? Well, this month’s Mother’s Day episode (directed by Chelsea Stardust) of the Into the Dark horror anthology shows how far one mother will go to help her son, even as far as helping him with his urges on murder.

All That We Destroy takes us into the life of Victoria (Samantha MathisAmerican Psycho, The Punisher) a geneticist who creates a group of clones for her son Spencer (Israel BroussardThe Bling Ring, Happy Death Day, Happy Death Day 2U) in hopes that it will cure him of his serial killer tendencies. 

The episode starts with a girl named Ashley (Aurora PerrineauTruth or Dare, Passengers) who is unconscious and getting cleaned up and dressed for Spencer’s arrival. She wakes up in a room with Spencer, (we are unaware of the connection between the two) still in a confusing state, she tries to come through when Spencer starts to strangle her and bash her head. That’s okay; I didn’t see that one coming either.

Ashley wakes up, and the process continues over and over again. This is an experiment that was started by Spencer’s mother. As a mother, you want your child to be all that they could be and succeed in life; a serial killer as her son is not what Victoria envisioned.

Victoria isn’t living an ordinary life of a mother; she’s living a nightmare knowing that her son is a serial killer, she is going above and beyond to try to fix it by creating clones to help his “cravings.” 

Spencer comes into contact with his bubbly neighbor Marissa (Dora Madison) and starts doing things like helping her carry boxes in the house for her and showcasing his artistic abilities by drawing her. It seems like he is trying to maintain some “normalcy” in his life, but Victoria doesn’t have it. She tries to hide him and who he is so that no one else around him will see their fate. Marissa will find out soon enough. 

This episode in this series is superb, along with the acting. It was cringe-worthy at times, only because you knew why Victoria went through the lengths she did. Any mother may do the same if given that chance, or some may not.

Check out the trailer below and make sure to watch this with your mother on Mother’s Day. ⬇️⬇️

The Act: Final Episode (Review)

The Act: Final Episode (Review)

Well, friends, the series has come to an end and it still leaves us with will there be a season 2? This episode ironically titled Free, has Gypsy convincing those around her (Mel, Lacey and her absent father) that she is innocent. With Dee Dee corrupting her from a young age, it is clear that you can tell that even though Gypsy knows right from wrong, she still has a mind like a child.

Gypsy starts to realize the harsh reality of how the world is especially without her mother, and being in prison is the worst way to find out how the world works. In her mind, as she is portrayed, she sees how tragic her situation is but does not grasp that this will not clear up and go back to normal. She is also learning that those she looked up to are now unsure if they can trust what she says. Take Lacey for instance. Gypsy is now relying on her friendship and hopes that she will visit her. Lacey is torn and wants answers, but it is unsure of what to do in this case, as she feels like she is to blame since she showed Gypsy the website to where Gypsy met Nick. Mel (Lacey’s mother) shows up for a visit which Gypsy was expecting to see Lacey. Mel along with the other neighbors was into Gypsy and Nick getting the death penalty. After talking to Gypsy, you can see that Mel is still trying to process if Dee Dee was abusing Gypsy, and if she could walk the whole time, then she should have walked away from the situation.

Gypsy’s lawyer is trying to prove that there was abuse and made up illnesses but will need to gain access to her medical records which only next of kin can obtain for her. She reaches out to her father for the records, and by her surprise, he visits her and explains that he tried being a part of her life. You can see the hurt in her eyes as she does not want to believe it because she wants to believe that everything her mother told her was correct. 

The kind of good news for Gypsy is that they are doing separate trials between her and Nick because she has a case with her medical records alone that will allow them to go into her home life and see how she lived under her mother’s care. Nick, realized that he is in this alone and will be serving a full-time sentence. 

 

This whole case leaves you torn; you are not sure which side to take and who deserved what, even if they were to it deserve something they cannot take matters into their own hands to end Dee Dee. There has been news circulating that there may be a season 2 which I believe may about Gypsy more, but there has not been any talk if it is going to start filming; hopefully, when news hits, we can update further if there is a follow-up season. For now, I want to hear your thoughts and opinions on how the show portrayed this tragic case.

The Act: Episode 7 Review

The Act: Episode 7 Review

We are coming to an end with this series, and episode 7 titled Bonnie and Clyde put most of the re-enactment into perspective and will leave your heart in your stomach. 

We see the two “love birds” on the bus which left off from episode 6 on their way to Wisconsin where Nicholas lives. His annoyed and no filtered mother (Juliette LewisNatural Born Killers, Whip It) picks them up, and it is clear that Nick did not inform Gypsy that he told his mother she was staying in a homeless shelter and needed somewhere else to go until she gets back on her feet. When asked about her situation with her mother, you can tell Gypsy was starting to feel the guilt as she told her lies. 

Upon arriving at the house, Gypsy takes over the room like she’s Nick’s housewife and more like how her mother would take care of her.  She starts panicking and getting worried that no one will find her mother, but Nick has a plan. They decide to post a status on Facebook to let everyone know that something was going on with Dee Dee. Being subtle, they wrote, “ That bitch is dead.” With a stir of comments flooding, Gypsy is wondering what is taking so long, but she doesn’t have to wonder much longer, she never disabled her location on Facebook.

Gypsy’s neighbor and friend Lacey gets an unsettling feeling after seeing the status and heads over to Dee Dee’s house with her mother to make sure everything was okay. It didn’t take long for the cops to appear and for them to be on the search for Gypsy, her neighbors are worried since her wheelchair is left behind and they know how “sick” she is. 

Nick’s mother has some suspicions on Gypsy’s behavior, you can see it in her facial expressions, but she does nothing more than encouraging her to try to make amends with her mother. The more that gets brought up, the more it sends Gypsy into a panic leading for her and Nick to fight outside. A little while later, police lights can be seen through the window. Amid their fear, they hide in the closet together where Gypsy tells him that they will both tell the truth because they did nothing wrong and that everything will be okay. 

With Gypsy and Nick being in separate interrogation rooms, Nick is very open and honest and starts telling the truth that he was the one who stabbed Dee Dee; he would be diagnosed later on with being on the autism spectrum, also unclear if he has multiple personality disorder. Gypsy, on the other hand, denied all questions and it seemed that she was silently pointing her finger at Nicholas.  

What comes to a complete shock with how this episode ended, was when the whole world saw that Gypsy could walk at the start of her trial. It is like everything went silent and you can hear the gasps from everyone who had no idea that she has been living this lie her whole life.

This all comes to an end this Wednesday May 1st on Hulu. All episodes are still up for those of you that are not caught up yet.

The Act: Episode 6 Review

The Act: Episode 6 Review

Get ready for everything to go into full circle cause this episode titled A Whole New World will put a lot into perspective for you as I know it did for me. Dee Dee is not only portrayed as a controlling, obsessive woman, but we all grow to dislike her, except for this episode passionately. It puts into the light as to why she is the way she was. The event starts with hearing Dee Dee scream; you already know the killing has begun, and then it takes us back to 1991 where Dee Dee was giving birth to Gypsy, and her mother was present. Being a parent, in general, can be very tough but being a first-time parent is nerve-racking at first, and it’s clear that Dee Dee’s mother Emma (Margo Martindale) oversteps her daughter by taking control of taking care of Gypsy since day 1. 

It seems from day 1 of having Gypsy that Dee Dee has a strict schedule. She goes with what a doctor told her and sticks to it and doesn’t switch it up not even with a mother’s intuition or “mother’s know best” motto. She was deemed to be not capable of being a mother because her mother pointed out her flaws even to go as far as to let the cops take her away in front of Gypsy. (At least that was how it was in the episode, a source says Dee Dee was pulled over and arrested but was not in prison for six months). That’s right; the overprotective “perfect” Dee Dee was arrested for check fraud. Her mother could have helped her but stated that she needs to learn her lesson especially taking ownership as a mother.

Let’s jump back to Gypsy and Nick. They are seen at a motel and decide to pack up, so before they head off, they go to a restaurant where Gypsy is full of anxiety even taking medication that belongs to her now deceased mother. When the police show up, Gypsy panics even more.  There was a small interaction with the officers when her prescription falls off the table, and the one officer picks it up for her, also looking at the name and calling her Claudine (Dee Dee). After the interaction, they hurry from the restaurant to come up with a new back up plan on what and where to go next. 

Dee Dee is now back from prison and is trying to build a bond with Gypsy, but her mother is standing in the way of that. Emma falls ill, and it seems that Dee Dee is purposely not taking care of her for a reason. To get rid of a controlling aspect in her life (sound familiar?). And now we jump back to Bonnie and Clyde. You can see the wheels turning in Gypsy’s head like she knows how big of a mistake she made and that she doesn’t seem too involved with Nick anymore—romantically that is. Like she wishes she could take this back, her feeling free from her mother’s control isn’t what she thought it would be. 

We bounce from Bonnie and Clyde back to a young Dee Dee panicking when Gypsy falls off the trampoline, she’s already a nervous first-time mom primarily when her mother uses to override her and her parenting, so now it’s full throttle. Not letting Gypsy do normal kid activities, kids fall, and they get up, but with her constant panicking and being over worried, it was already a sign that something more would escalate eventually from this. This is how it comes to an end, it all goes full circle in this episode. 

I had constant anxiety, and my heart was outside my chest watching this series, anticipating on what is yet to come, even from closely following this case I still can’t fathom on what Gypsy endured during her whole childhood. So many questions to ask and so many unanswered.

Netflix Announced ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ will not be renewed

All good things cannot last forever and eventually has to end at some point. There has been news circling that Netflix is pulling the plug on Santa Clarita Diet, so there goes the theory if a fourth season happens. The third season of Santa Clarita Diet which stars Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Liv Hewson, and Skyler Gisondo has been up and running, and sadly that is the last we will see. 

Leaving us, the third season shows Sheila (Barrymore) and Joel (Olyphant), two realtors who live in the suburbs of LA, they seem like an average couple, but Sheila is a zombie. This season Sheila asks Joel to convert so they can live together forever. Meanwhile, their daughter Abby (Hewson) and her friend Eric (Gisondo) fight to stay off the FBI’s radar after blowing up the site from last season. 

With all the zombie humor coming to an end, we will miss you Santa Clarita Diet.

The Act: Episode 5 Review

The Act: Episode 5 Review

We are getting closer and closer to the end of the series and in episode 5 titled “Plan B” things get very heated. We start this episode in 2015 with Gypsy engaging in cybersex with her “boyfriend” for two years, Nick. They create this fantasy where they escape into it, Nick having Gypsy call him ‘Victor ‘ his alter ego who saves Gypsy from her evil mother from all the bad she puts her through. Gypsy interrupts and comes up with a plan, she booked him a bus ticket and will convince her mother to get out of the house so the two can finally meet and that he can make a good impression on her mother. 

It skips to Nick working at his pizza job to start saving up so he can make this visit with Gypsy happen. It shows a quiet and shy Nick learning how to put the pizzas in the oven but dropping them every time. While his boss is patient with him, it seems that Nick lacks the confidence and gets frustrated inside to where he is seen standing outside in costume yelling for customers to visit the shop as if that’s the only simple task he can handle. 

It now pans to a very tired and sick Dee Dee who snaps at an anxious Gypsy who is over talking and begging her to go anywhere rather it be Disney or the zoo. Dee Dee apologizes for the outburst and settles to take Gypsy to the movies to see Cinderella. You can view all the anxiety in Gypsy; all she wants to do in her 20s is be free and have a relationship other than with her overbearing and over-controlling mother. With each argument and any put down that Dee Dee does to Gypsy, you can see it in Gypsy’s eyes, the exhaustion and her willing to do anything to get out of her mother’s wrath. During another video chat with Nick, she informs him to wear the nice shirt that she sent him and where to meet them along with how to make a perfect impression. 

The day is here, and with Gypsy knowing on who she will be finally seeing she wants to look her best. What her mother has in mind, dressing her adult daughter in a Cinderella dress and wig. As much as Gypsy refuses she still puts on the dress, in her mind she’ll look like a princess for her Prince Charming. Once arriving at the theater , Gypsy asks her mother if she can have a treat like sharing a soda to where Dee Dee snaps. As they pick their seats, Gypsy keeps looking her shoulder in anticipation and Dee Dee begins to notice how fidgety she is and even questions her about it. Nick enters and sits behind them, trying to start a polite conversation, however Dee Dee calls him out and moves Gypsy away causing Nick to walk out. Gypsy questions her mother asking why she has to talk to people that way and then excuses herself to the restroom in hopes of finding Nick. 

Once Gypsy heads to the restroom, Nick meets her there. Finally, the two can embrace, get to touch whom they fell in love with the last two years of talking. Taking longer than usual, Dee Dee gets restless and goes to search for her daughter, upon arrival to the locked door, she can hear soft moans and laughter inside. Feeling uncomfortable, Dee Dee heads back to the movie to which Gypsy arrives around the ending of it. Nick attempts again to hold the door for them and to start a conversation to where Dee Dee completely snaps. Both Nick’s and Gypsy’s facial expressions say it all. They grow cold.

With how Gypsy and Nick are beginning to execute their plan, it seems that Gypsy starts to reconsider, especially when Dee starts to apologize, you think the apology would be about her overreacting, but it’s more about how she didn’t give Gypsy a treat at the theater. Symbolism plays a big part at the end of the episode. Especially when it comes to the final scene with Gypsy going to the hunting store in the mall to purchase a knife; she even goes as far as to ask the guy behind the counter to what he would recommend. Red paint was dripping, red handle on the knife.. only leads to one thing — Dee Dee’s fate.

Treehouse (Into The Dark series) Review

Treehouse (Into The Dark series) Review

Every first Friday of the month I look forward to the watching the Into the Dark series on Hulu and the sixth episode in this installment: Treehouse has really outdone itself and may be the best and most shocking episode in this anthology. While the other episodes are holiday-themed, this Ides of March themed thriller which is directed by the A Million Little Things star James Roday  (The Resident, Rosewood) definitely shows the horror of male entitlement through the #MeToo Movement.

This episode has a very collective cast. It stars Jimmi Simpson (Date Night, Black Mirror, Person Of Interest), Julianna Guill (Mine Games, The Resident), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn NineNine, Closure, Bob’s Burgers), Sophia Del Pizzo (Driftwood, Follow), Sutton Foster (Gilmore Girls, Younger), Nancy Linehan Charles (The Stepfather, Grimm, The Hatred), Mary McCormack (Deep Impact, Scandal, ER), and Shaunette Reneé Wilson (Black Panther, The Resident).

The beginning is quite eerie, at least it was to me. It starts off showing a bruised and battered woman who is sipping wine on a hill in the desert. It then cuts to a bar/restaurant where celebrity chef Peter Rake (Jimmi Simpson) is yelling at his cooks, in a Chef Ramsay way, followed by a visit from his daughter. To me, their relationship seemed strained through his daughters eyes even though you can tell that he loves her very much but seems too busy and full of himself to acknowledge her. 

With the stress going around him, he decides to retreat to his family’s vacation home where he runs into his sister Gwen (Amanda Walsh) whom he hasn’t seen in an awfully long time. Not only does he come in contact with his sister, he also starts up conversation with the housekeeper Agnes (Nancy Linehan Charles) who seems a little off and peculiar. Now this is where it gets really weird, the movie starts shifting and now Peter is visited by a girl named Kara (Julianna Guill) who informs him that their bachelorette party ran into an issue, the power went out. Instead of just handing Kara the basics like candles and flashlights to get them through the night, Peter decides to invite them over and offer to cook up dinner when the party goers realized who he was. 

The bride to be (Shaunette Reneé Wilson), her mother (Mary McCormack) and the rest of her squad (Sutton Foster, Sophia Del Pizzo, and Stephanie Beatriz) all watch as Peter gets drunker and drunker as the night goes on, and shows his crude side as he makes uncomfortable comments at their expense. 

Without giving so much away, as you can guess it all comes back at Peter. The ladies flip the table back to Peter’s agressive and abusive past. It seems like a typical female revenge film, but it also seems like Peter is getting a lesson out of this, being spared but also knowing that these women have a hold on him for the rest of his life. You start to wonder, why spare him after how he treats women and thinks it’s okay, but then you get the sense of he’ll be ridiculed forever by these powerful women and that is pure horror in itself.

Check out the trailer below and if you are not caught up in this series, all 6 episodes are up on Hulu. You will not regret it. ⬇️⬇️

Creepshow Production Started—House Of Tortured Souls

Creepshow Production Started—House Of Tortured Souls

Shudder has announced that production has begun the reboot of Creepshow. The six-episode season will be produced by The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero and the horror series is based off the iconic 1982 film which was written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero

The six-episode season will feature an unannounced Stephen King story and for right now they are saying it’s like a “survivor type” of story. 

Nicotero will direct some of this series and the other installments will be done by David Bruckner, Roxanne Benjamin, Rob Schrab, and John Harrison. Bruckner is the director of The Ritual along with Bloody Disgusting segments in V/H/S and SouthboundBenjamin has directed such segments in Bloody Disgusting’s Southbound and XX. Schrab’s directing credits goings to Ghosted and Community, and Harrison who was actually the first assistant director for George Romero on the original Creepshow movie will be directing a story that he co-wrote with Nicotero. Harrison also composed Creepshows film’s theme. 

Additional stories and directors as well as the casting will be announced later this year. Creepshow will premiere on Shudder later on in the year—no specific date as of now. 

Normally for me personally, I tend to like when they leave the classics alone however with Nicotero producing this I am curious to see the route they will go and what amount of gore they will endure. I am curious to see all the effects and Nicoyero’s Oscar and Emmy award-winning company will be handling all of the creature and make-up effects. Definitely will be opened minded and give it a chance when this becomes available on Shudder.

Croatoan?: American Horror Story season 6

Croatoan?: American Horror Story season 6

By Dixielord

The makers of American Horror Story have gone to great lengths to keep the theme of the upcoming season under wraps. We know about the cast. We know that American Horror Story season 6 will bring back Lady Gaga. We also know that Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters have either been officially announced or have dropped hints they will return. On the flip side, we know series favorite Jessica Lange won't be returning for American Horror Story season 6. We even know that the start date has been pushed up to September from the usual October. But we still don't know the theme. Or do we?

"La

On set photos posted to TMZ seem to heavily point to American Horror Story season 6 focusing on one of America's greatest mysteries. Not the Bermuda Triangle (which is kind of American) and not Bigfoot (and why the hell not Bigfoot?), but the mystery of Roanoke. The most telling photo was of a tree with the word “Croatoan” carved into it. When the colony of Roanoke, with all 117 settlers, disappeared, the only clue left behind was the a similar carving.

"What

TMZ has also published pictures that seem to show a colonial era village, and their “spies” have reported cast members dressed in pilgrim garb. With all this, it seems guaranteed that American Horror Story season 6 with focus, at least partially on the lost colony. Add to that that in season one, Murder House, Sarah Paul son’s character told a fictionalized version of the Roanoke mystery. FX president John Langraf has stated that the upcoming season will be set in the present, but with echoes from the past. I'd be willing the past is set in or around Roanoke.

"Question

Other media released by the network heavily features a question mark motif. So could season 6 be titled American Horror Story Mysteries maybe? Who knows. Right now we have a lot of hints, some very defining hints, but just hints. September 14th is just two weeks away, so at least we wont have to wait long to find out!
