    “AMERICAN HORROR STORY”: Ryan Murphy talks the “FREAK SHOW”

    COVEN may have underwhelmed upon completion, but the beauty of AMERICAN HORROR STORY lies in its seasonal reinvention, allowing creators Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk and their horror troupe to lure us in anew every year. For season four, the time and place utterly warped by the show’s vision will be a circus in 1950s Jupiter, Florida where series star Jessica Lange will play a German ex-pat managing said carnival. We’ve previously learned actors Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett and Evan Peters are also returning (where is Lily Rabe?!). But what of new characters?

    Bong Joon-ho’s (THE HOST, MOTHER) acclaimed and eagerly awaited adaptation of post-apocalytpic French graphic novel LA TRANSPERCENEIGE has had a long road to U.S. theaters, entangled in will they/won’t they with the The Weinstein Company over whether the film needed to be cut for American audiences’ presumed attention span. We’re thrilled to see it’s arriving from Radius-TWC this June in full, and the theatrical trailer previews the visually enticing, violent tale of class warfare aboard a train we’re hoping for.

    Trailer: South American 3D Neo-Giallo, “NECROPHOBIA”

    The stylistic influence of giallo is hovering heavily over contemporary horror, especially with a group of filmmakers in South America. In just recent months, we’ve brought word of the unique homage SONNO PROFONDO (aka DEEP SLEEP) from Argentina, as well as Italian-horror infused high school flick MALDITO AMOR from Chile. You can now add the very neat-looking, also Argentinian NECROPHOBIA 3D—the latest film from JENNIFER’S SHADOW (aka CHRONICLE OF THE RAVEN) director Daniel de la Vega—to the list.

    A New “ROSEMARY’S BABY” Aims to Set Itself Apart

    On Sunday May 11, NBC unveils the first half of a new, four hour miniseres adaptation of Ira Levin’s ROSEMARY’S BABY. In 1968, horror showman William Castle produced Roman Polanski’s highly regarded 1968 film of Levin’s book in an attempt to prove to Hollywood, and to moviegoers, that he could produce a “classy” horror movie. Best known for B-movies like THE TINGLER (1959) and HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1958), among others, Castle yearned for respectability. The drive-in fare he produced (complete with gimmicks such as wiring theater seats for electricity in order to “shock” viewers as he did with Tingler) were moneymakers, but Castle was never taken seriously as a filmmaker.

    War Brews in Official “DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES” Trailer

    A decade on from the events of RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, the new trailer for this summer’s highly anticipated DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES finds its early thrills in apes on horses, apes talking and attempting to live communally (while scrawling a very familiar law across rocks). That is, of course, until the survivors of the Flu which ravaged humanity threaten to break the uneasy peace.
